Davlyn Products in the Transportation Industry

Davlyn Silco™ silicone-coated fiberglass firesleeves and tapes have become an industry standard for hose and wiring protection with their inherent resistance to common lubricants/engine liquids and ability to protect even when temporarily exposed to intense direct flame associated with engine fires while providing constant radiant heat protection up to 500°F (260°C).  Davlyn Silco Sleeve® products meet aerospace, locomotive and transportation requirements for a variety of applications.  Silco Shield® Firesleeve with Hook & Loop closure provides excellent heat protection while allowing easy in-situ installation of installed tubes, wiring and hoses.  Our regular, uncoated fiberglass products are used for their inherent insulating properties where higher temperatures exist (above 500°F (260°C)) or where the silicone coating is not a requirement.

Davlyn knitted Basalt Sleeve is commonly used for higher temperature exhaust applications with temperatures beyond fiberglass capabilities (up to 1382°F / 750°C) where increased resistance to abrasion and road salt and moisture exposure is required.  Davlyn knitted Basalt Sleeve has heavy, single-wall construction that provides maximum insulating properties for optimal thermal performance.
