Materials & Products

Our knitted basalt sleeve with a heavy, single-wall construction and woven basalt tape are commonly used for exhaust applications with temperatures beyond fiberglass capabilities up to 1382°F (750°C) and where increased resistance to abrasion and road salt and moisture exposure is required. Davlyn Group Silco™ silicone-coated fiberglass firesleeves and tapes provide constant radiant heat protection up to 500°F (260°C). Our Silco Shield® firesleeve with hook and loop closure provides excellent heat protection and simple installation for installed tubes, wiring, and hoses. Our regular, uncoated fiberglass products can be used in conjunction with silicone coated and impregnated cloths for enhanced insulating properties. We also offer Tetraglas® cloths with reflective foil coatings for applications that require heat to be reflected away from an area.
