Davlyn Silco™ Products are the Metals Industry Standard

Davlyn Silco silicone-coated fiberglass firesleeves, tapes & ropes have become an industry standard with their ability to deflect a molten metal splash while providing constant radiant heat protection up to 500°F/260°C.  Silco Sleeve® Firesleeve is the foundryman’s first choice for protecting hoses and cables around the furnace.  Silco Shield® Firesleeve with Hook & Loop closure provides excellent heat protection while allowing easy retrofitting of existing cables and hoses.  Silco Shield® Fireblanket can be used to protect larger areas from molten splash and damaging radiant heat.  Regular, uncoated fiberglass sleeves, tapes and ropes are also used for thermal shielding and packing around equipment where molten splash is not a primary concern.
