SHILTEKTM TECHNICAL FEATURES
Thanks to the use of high quality and high resistance materials, SHILTEK sleevings are the best protection product in all those applications like Aerospace, Automotive, Smetlters, Pulp & Paper, Glass industries, Mining, Steel Industry, where the insulation degree and fire protection, become of fundamental importance to assure global plant reliability.
Easy to assemble, SHILTEKTM assures high protection levels also in case of reflected or inducted heat.
Free from sea water corrosion, is the ideal solution to protect flexible hoses or cables located inside the engine bays of vessels or ships .
SHILTEKTM sleeves are free from asbestos and do not contain ceramic fibres. They are conforming to the new ecological requirements of EN norms, assuring compliance both from the operator or the environment basic parameters.
SHILTEKTM sleeves are the most advanced and reliable solution where the normal sleeves are not indicated or can not assure system work integrity.
SHILTEK is free from asbestos or other ceramic derivate materials. The most significant advantages, can be summarized in the attached table:
PROTECTION OF THE OPERATOR
Significative reduction of personal injuries due to contacts with overheated metallic parts
COMPONENT SHELF LIFE
Improved component life and long lasting protection also in presence of molten splash
Very low heat dissipation with the environment
All fiberglass braids are treated to withstand up to temperature of +1100°C, to assure continuity in the system
1. One sample of hydraulic hose covered with SHILTEC, exposed to a blue flame generated by a blow torch, shows the resistance of the silicone layer
2. When the temperature grows, the silicone rubber coating began to develop a white silica coating as barrier to the fire penetration.
3. After being exposed at a flame temperature of +1100°C (+ 2000°F), the exsposed area, wasscrapedaway, to show braid integrity
4. The sleeve is then pulled back from hose assembly to show hose cover integrity.
