When things heat up: Heat protection with marsoflex® Pyro products
In the chemical industry, aircraft and ship construction, petroleum refineries, and steel and smelting works, the transportation of extremely hot media or superheated steam, as well as flames, can cause all kinds of damage and injury. It may not always be possible to entirely eliminate such risks, but the right protection can substantially reduce them.
Effective protection from heat and flame
For demanding environments like this, or as special heat and fire protection for hoses, cables and other objects, Pyro products from marsoflex® are the answer. They are made of braided, woven or knitted e-glass filament yarn, and have a thick coating of special silicone on one or both sides.
marsoflex® Pyro products always maintain high mechanical resistance and good abrasion strength. The glass fabric provides outstanding insulation. The silicone coating is highly resistant against most industrial chemicals and hydraulic oils.
“With their special silicone coating, our Pyro products offer effective protection against molten metal splashes, welding sparks and brief flame exposure. Hot fluids simply bead off the surface so they can’t leave encrustations.”

In practice, this provides heat and fire protection and insulation for hoses, cables, objects and people, and extends the life of hoses. The main advantages:
- Safety for users through insulation to the outside
- Protection for hoses from high heat and fire hazards
- Tyre presses: insulation of steam hoses
- Marine engine manufacture: heat and fire protection
