Vitreous Silica fibre is designed for extreme temperature applications. Vitreous Silica fibre in this design is braided with standard insulation on the individual conductors and the jacket giving a continuous temperature rating up to 982 °C (1800 °F). The vitreous silica fibre is flexible throughout the extended temperature range but is not recommended for applications that are highly abrasive in high temperatures. The high-temperature limit of Vitreous Silica allows it to be used in areas where the temperature is higher than the upper limit of fibreglass braided wires. Standard build design provides the most economical solution to your high-temperature application.
The heavy build design with thicker insulation on the individual conductors and the jacket giving a continuous temperature rating up to 982 °C (1800 °F).
