AVS Industries manufactures Woven Silica tape and Adhesive Backed Silica tape.
AVSil® Silica Woven and Adhesive-Backed Slit Tapes provide excellent thermal protection for electrical lines, piping, and equipment in high temperature applications against welding splatter, fire, extreme heat and molten metal. AVSil® Silica Woven and Adhesive-Backed Slit Tapes are used in many different industries for thermal protection over; pipes, electrical wires, water hoses, cords and cables.
- AVSil® Woven Silica Tape – Improved edge construction improves tape handling.
- AVSil® Silica Adhesive Backed Silica Tape – Manufactured from our high-performance satin weave silica fabrics with a proprietary Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) applied to the back side for ease of use.
AVSil® Silica Woven Tape
AVSil® Silica Woven Tapes have a "woven edge" to protect against equipment fire, extreme heat, welding splatter and molten metal. AVSil® Silica Woven Tapes have selvaged edges to prevent raveling. WT36CH and WT65CH have a finish that improves low temperature handling. AVSil® Silica Woven Tapes are intended for high temperature applications with continuous service up to 1800°F (982°C). AVSil® Silica Woven Tapes are extensively used in the following Industries: Power Generation, Shipbuilding, Construction, Welding, and Metal Processing.
Potential applications include: insulation wrap for pipes, hoses and electrical cables, isolated high temperature welding protection, and thermal and/or welding blanket fabrication for cut edge protection to eliminate fraying.
AVS Adhesive-backed Slit TapesAVS Adhesive-backed Slit Tapes combine the non-raveling properties of woven tape with an adhesive system to facilitate installation for various product applications. AVSil® Silica Adhesive-backed Slit Tapes are intended for high temperature applications with continuous service up to 1800°F (982°C). ALUMF2025 aluminized fiberglass tapes are recommended for high temperature applications up to 1000°F (538°C). AVS Slit Tapes are made by slitting the following standard silica and fiberglass fabrics:
- AVSil® 84CH - Silica Fabric
- AVSil® 188CH - Silica Fabric
- ALUMF2025 - Aluminum Foil Laminated Fiberglass Fabric
