RaceFlux's aluminumed Kevlar aramid sleeve is now available with double-stitched sections so that it can easily be cut to size without frayed ends or unraveling! Sleeves can be cut into sections in multiples of 13 inches (33 cm) with a pair of scissors.
The Kevlar aramid layer is now also thinner and more flexible, while still offering excellent protection against heat and abrasion.
This reflective aluminized sleeve is designed to protect hoses, wires and cables from continuous radiant heat exposure up to 500°F and short-term exposure up to 1,000°F. This light-weight sleeve reflects approximately 90% of radiant heat energy to protect sensitive components from heat exposure. The high-strength Kevlar aramid fiber layer provides excellent abrasion resistance and flame resistance without the undesirable properties and handling hazards of fiberglass.
The hook and loop closure allows for easy installation over existing hoses and wiring harnesses, and can be easily removed for further adjustments. We recommend using this sleeve in applications where removable heat protection is desired or where access to the end of the hoses or wiring loom is not possible. We do not recommend this sleeve in applications where periodic exposure to flames may occur. While the Kevlar layer offers excellent fire resistance, the aluminized layer will melt quickly when directly exposed to flames.
Sold in 39 inches (100 cm) or 10 foot (305 cm) lengths and can be cut into sections in multiples of 13 inches (33 cm) with a pair of scissors without frayed or unraveled ends.
