For applications which require a very soft and flexible insulating rope which still offers the temperature, thermal conductivity and chemical resistance of fibreglass, AG offers a range of twisted fibreglass ropes. These ropes are available in sizes ranging from 6.4mm through to 25.4mm in diameter and can be purchased by either the roll or metre.
Though less physically strong than their braided counterparts, twisted fibreglass ropes still offer the ability to withstand temperatures reaching 540ºC along with a wide range of chemicals (with the exception of hydrofluoric and hot phosphoric acids and wet hydrogen chloride). Twisted fibreglass rope also offers the same low rate of elongation (under 3%) as the braided variety.
Often used for insulating screens and in window gasket applications, AG’s range of twisted fibreglass ropes are a cost effective insulation option for applications which require a soft insulation material that is unlikely to need to withstand any mechanical stress.
