Basalt fibre is in a lot of ways a better alternative to fibreglass, made from basalt, a hard, dense, volcanic rock. It provides high temperature performance and superior strength.
Knitted basalt sleeves are constructed with basalt fibre yarns knit into a heavy sleeve to provide an exceptional combination of enhanced heat resistance, thermal performance, and durability. Recommended for a continuous operating temperature of 750°C, Basalt provides an excellent exhaust heat shield.
Our basalt sleeve facilitates an increase in the efficiency of a vehicle’s emission control system through the retention of high temperatures as gases flow through the exhaust system.
