Darco Southern Products set the Energy Industry Standard

High Temperature Tapes and Sleeves are staple products for both the Oil & Gas Industry and Darco Southern. Fiberglass, Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass and Silica tapes and sleeves offer a wide range of thermal performance to meet necessary requirements. These products provide excellent insulation and thermal shielding protection. To provide the best service and product selection, Darco Southern stocks many of the sizes most used in this industry.

Darco Southern silicone-coated fiberglass firesleeve and tape have become an industry standard with their ability to protect even when temporarily exposed to intense direct flame while providing constant radiant heat protection up to 500°F/260°C.  Firesleeve also provides hoses with additional protection from UV and other environmental elements.   Firesleeve is the ideal choice for protecting hoses and cables around the hot equipment or protecting workers from contact with hot hoses.  Firesleeve with Hook & Loop closure provides excellent heat protection while allowing easy retrofitting of existing cables and hoses.  Fireblanket (silicone-coated fiberglass) can be used to protect larger areas from welding and cutting sparks and molten weld splatter.
