304 (Fiberglass, 900°F)
The 304 series is an economical glass braid that can be used in a wide range of applications. Each conductor is glass braided, color coded and impregnated with a resin that inhibits fraying and reduces friction. A final layer of fiberglass is applied over the parallel conductors and a coat of resin is applied.
Wire is available in ASTM E 230 Type J or K, 20 AWG or 24 AWG, solid conductors or stranded for flexibility.
This construction allows for a temperature rating of 900°F (482°C) continuously and spikes of 1000°F (538°C). The impregnation resin will burn off a 400°F (204°C).
Suggested uses: Furnace survey work, Heat treating, Foundries, Glass and Ceramic palnts. Extruders, Injection molding and Vacuum forming.
Optional stainless steel overbraid is available for added abrasion resistance, contact sales department.
