The fibre glass can be either knitted or braided. The Hiprojacket is a cable protection cover to resist short term flames and materials with high temperatures like molten splash. A complete program of Hiprojacket fittings is available for easy installation with solid braided glass fiber sleeving and a silicone cover.
When Hipro products are exposed to flames, the silicone rubber transforms into crust of carbon, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer. Hipro products withstands repeated exposures to molten metals and molten glass up to +1650 ºC. Thereby it also protects against heat radiation, just like it protects employees from burns. The heavy coating of the proprietary iron oxide red silicone compound sheds molten metal splashes immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs.
