Products Selector > Tapes > Tapes: Tadpole

Precision Fiberglass Tadpole Gasket with High Compression Stainless Steel Knit Hollow Sleeve Core

1100°F / 593°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

These high temperature, heat & flame resistant and thermal insulating precision fiberglass tadpole tapes are fabricated with high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C. Commonly used as a gasket or seal for access doors and gate valves and other oven and stove applications

This tadpole is precision manufactured resulting in extremely tight tolerances and repeatability of its dimensions between production runs  The outer fiberglass cover is heat treated resulting in no loose fibers, making this tadpole suitable for clean room and paint booth applications.

This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents.  It is highly flexible and conformable.

The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.

This tadpole features a high compression and excellent puch back, with high cycle life, due to the knitted metallic sleeve core.

Two versions of the tadpole are available: 1) 1 3/8" Overall Width with 5/8" bulb.  2)  1 1/4" Overall Width with 1/2" bulb.

The tail is supplied as a flat tube, which may remain empty or may be filled with a fiber or metal rope, etc. by the customer.
