Which insulation Material?Usable temperature rangeApplication Notes
PVC -10°C to 105°C Good general purpose insulation for 'light' environments.  Waterproof and very flexible.
PFA (extruded) -75°C to 250°C Resistant to oils, acids other adverse agents and fluids.  Good mechanical strength and flexibility.  PTFE better for steam/elevated pressure environments.
PTFE (taped & wrapped) -75°C to 250/300°C Resistant to oils, acids adverse agents and fluids.  Good mechanical strength and flexibility.
Glassfibre (varnished) -60°C to 350/400°C Good temperature range but will not prevent ingress of fluids.  Fairly flexible but does not provide good mechanical protection.
High temperature glassfibre -60°C to 700°C Will withstand temperature up to 700°C but will not prevent ingress of fluids.  Fairly flexible, not good protection against physical disturbance.
Ceramic Fibre 0°C to 1000°C Will withstand high temperature, up to 1000°C.  Will not protect against fluids or physical disturbance.
Glassfibre (varnished)
stainless steel overbraid
-60°C to 350/400°C Good strength to physical disturbance and high temperature (up to 400°C).  Will not prevent ingress of fluids.
