New development: F88 Basalt eco fire sleeve* Extended service life thanks to constant very high fire resistance* Improved protection of people and materials
With the F88 Basalt eco fire sleeve, VIGOT is bringing a new development to market that was designed especially for workplaces exposed to extremely high heat, such as blast furnaces. This innovation complements the selection of MAXIMALL® hose systems that are already commonly used in metallurgy today.
The F88 Basalt eco fire sleeve is made of braided or knitted basalt fibres with a silicone coating for convincing, outstanding temperature characteristics. It maintains its functionality even at the highest continuous temperature exposure. An extreme temperature range for short-term flame use is also tolerated. The performance remains outstanding even with partial overheating.
The consistently very high fire resistance of the F88 Basalt eco fire sleeve protects the material, increases the service life and thus meets the high demands of the workplace.
Especially in view of the safety of personnel at blast furnaces and other workplaces exposed to high heat, the F88 Basalt eco fire sleeve is an important new development. It integrates seamlessly into the series of innovations developed by VIGOT under the motto “safety first”.
