TECSIL woven silica tapes retain strength and flexibility in insulation applications at 1800°F (982°C). When spiral wrapped over pipes, hoses or cables, they offer protection against molten metal or extreme radiant heat. TECSIL is completely fireproof and with it's 96% minimum silica content it protects against contamination in high temperature environments.

TECSIL Tape Applications:

TECSIL tape insulation applications are in ferrous and non-ferrous molten metals environments include cooling and fuel/hydraulic line hoses, heating elements, electrical cables and motor leads, and cooling water pipelines subjected to molten metal splash. A spiral wrap with TECSIL tape insures against a failure due to extreme high soak temperatures or possible catastrophic excursion temperatures.

Vertical strip furnace curtains can be constructed with TECSIL tape suspended in a "mop-like" fashion to provide a thermal barrier between the outside shop environment and the controlled temperature zones of the furnace interior, while allowing penetration of the heat treated parts through the curtain with minimal openings or exposure. Annealing furnaces and slot pre-heat furnaces are typical applications for TECSIL silica tape curtains.
