Material & Products

Davlyn Group silicone-coated fiberglass sleeves and tapes deflect molten metal splashes while providing constant radiant heat protection up to 500°F (260°C). Expandable fiberglass sleeves are also used for hose thermal protection where molten splash is not a primary concern. Our Silco Shield® firesleeve with hook and loop closure provides excellent heat protection while allowing easy retrofitting of existing cables and hoses. Our Silco™ self-adhering silicone tape allows fabricators to seal firesleeve assembly ends with an aesthetically superior and higher performing finish compared to liquid end dip products.

Our fiberglass and silica sleeves and wraps are offered in a variety of thicknesses, sizes, and materials to meet your hose fabrication needs, and several different closures can be added to aid in installation. In addition to our fiberglass and silica product lines, ceramic fiber and basalt tapes, blankets, and cloths can be used to manufacture custom hose coverings.
