A high quality, high temperature, flame retardant sleeving for protection of hose, cable and process lines. GSUP sleeving consists of an extrusion coating of specially formulated silicone rubber over highly expandable braided fiberglass. The braid construction allows high radial expansion of up to 100% and has a smooth firm inner wall for ease of installation. Fiberglass pre-treatments result in strong adhesion between glass sleeve and silicone coating. The high pressure coating process ensures a smooth, even surface, without the wall thickness variation and the pimples and protrusions of broken fibers which are typical of sleevings produced by some alternative coating systems. GSUP sleeving is also highly flexible, but is non-fraying when cut. The silicone rubber coating is non-flammable (self-extinguishing) and suitable for continuous use at 480F (250C). The coating is fully post-cured to eliminate the possibility of residual volatile compounds.
