​Fire Resistant Coolant Hoses​

 

 

 

 

 

Silicone Hoses with Polyester and Meta-aramid Fabric reinforcement

Fire retardant or low smoke-low toxicity hoses manufactured from specially formulated silicone compounds that burn less than standard silicones and tend to self-extinguish.

Fire retardant silicone hoses are typically used in passenger transportation:

  • Railway OEM or overhaul
  • Locomotives and passenger carriages
  • Buses and coaches.

 

Designed not to release hazardous gases, have low smoke and to be self-extinguishing
