Heat resistant sleeves are used to cover cables, wires, and hoses to protect them from heat and flame or to provide electrical insulation. Heat resistant sleeves also protect from oil, water, and grease around fuel lines and hydraulic equipment in industrial applications. In addition to high temperature industrial environments, heat resistant sleeves are commonly used for thermal management in the automotive aftermarket.
