Knitted or braided high bulk glass fiber sleeve with VCO hook-and-loop closure. Ideal choice for easy retrofits.
Install without disconnecting hoses or cables
Constructed from a high bulk glass fiber knitted sleeve, heavily coated with our proprietary compound of iron oxide red silicone rubber. Using high temperature glass fiber thread, a flame retardant hook-and-loop closure system is sewn internally.
Sheds splash immediately
Pyrojacket® VCO withstands repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminum and molten glass up to 3000°F (1650°C). The heavy coating of our proprietary iron oxide red silicone rubber compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs. When exposed to flames, the silicone rubber transforms into a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer.
Withstands intense radiant heat and flame
Pyrojacket® VCO will withstand continuous exposure to 500° F (260°C); up to 2000°F (1090°C) for 15-20 minutes; and up to 3000°F (1650°C) for 15-30 seconds.
Excellent modulus of elasticity makes this Insulflex® product an optimal choice for bundling hoses, tubes and cables in a variety of hostile environments.
Protect your personnel and cut your energy loss
Pyrojacket® VCO’s insulation properties provide personnel with effective protection against burns from hot hoses and flexible steam lines, while reducing heat energy losses.
Guard against fraying and absorption
Newly developed Odourless End Dip™ is designed to coat Pyrojacket® and Pyroblanket™ at the ends. This special formulation of liquid silicone rubber prevents fraying and the absorption of flammable oils or other contaminants into exposed glass fibers. Read more about Odourless End Dip™
