1500°F / 815°C Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant LadderTapeä:
Thermal Insulating Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Tape
Very High-Temperature Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass LadderTape
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant thermal insulating vermiculite coated fiberglass LadderTapeä will withstand temperatures of 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure. The base High Temperature woven fiberglass LadderTape is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn. The tape is then coated with a vermiculite dispersant.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable.
Applications for this product include thermal insulation and/or protection of wires, cables, hoses, pipe and tube, as well as affording energy savings and personnel protection.
The vermiculite coating also adds abrasion resistance to the sleeve.
The tape is available in Plain and Drop Warp Styles. Drop Warp tape has several of the center lengthwise yarns missing during weaving, and allows the tape to be easily used for bolt-hole applications (sometimes called ladder tape).

Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
