Fiberglass Rope Overview
Davlyn offers a variety of Fiberglass Rope products. Our fiberglass gasket rope is constructed of high-quality Type E Fiberglass yarns, knitted into both soft and dense rope forms. Fiberglass rope will not burn and is suitable for use in continuous temperatures to 1000°F (540°C). Common applications for fiberglass gasket rope include seals for boilers, ovens, and stoves as well as high-temperature industrial packing and expansion joints. Most fiberglass gasket ropes can be wire jacketed with stainless steel mesh for abrasion resistance, coated with high-temperature silicone elastomer, over-braided with fiberglass or supplied with a pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) to ease initial installation.

Silicone Rope – Silicone Coated Fiberglass Rope
Silco Rope® is a silicone rope produced by coating our high quality fiberglass rope with a layer of high-grade silicone elastomer. The silicone coating provides enhanced sealing performance, with the additional benefit of protecting the underlying fiberglass rope from oils and other contaminants. This Silicone rope is suitable for applications with continuous temperatures up to 500°F (260°C).
Davlyn Soft and Dense Fiberglass Rope is available in standard sizes from 1/16″ (1.6mm) through 4″ (101.6mm). Most of our knitted fiberglass rope is available in white or black.
Silicone-coated fiberglass rope is available in sizes from 1/4″ (6.4mm) through 1-3/4″ (44.5mm) and in a variety of colors. Contact Davlyn for more details.
