High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Firesleeve - Aviation Grade (meets AS1072)
(Allows qualified hose assemblies to pass AS1055D testing)
This aviation grade / aerospace grade high temperature, heat & flame resistant firesleeve is manufactured to AS1072 standards so it can pass the fire testing standards of AS1055D; and the requirements of FAA TSO - C53a and TSO - C75. AS1072 firesleeve is manufactured by applying a thick coating of self-extinguishing heat dispersant silicone rubber on a thick wall fiberglass (fibreglass or glassfibre) braided sleeve, providing outstanding fire, flame and burn-through resistance.
It may be used for all fuel, oil, hydraulic, fire extinguisher and prop feathering hoses and lines. "Fire-proof" hose lines, as defined by the FAA, must withstand a direct flame for fifteen minutes under specified flow conditions without failure. Fire-resistant lines must withstand a 5 minute exposure under these conditions. Also protects wire and cable runs.
Fire-proof hose lines are obtained when the proper size Firesleeve is selected and properly assembled with appropriate clamps.
Firesleeve is available in sizes ranging from 0.25" Inside Diameter through 5" I.D. in 25 size steps.
Silicone rubber coated fiberglass (fibreglass / glassfibre) withstands molten splash & welding splatter. Withstands 500°F / 260°C continuous exposure; 2200°F / 1205°C for periods up to 15 minutes and short flash excursions to 3000°F / 1650°C.
Molten metals simply slide off of the extra heavy duty coating of High-Temperature Silicone Rubber on all of these products (firesleeve), providing excellent burn-through protection.
