Main Form Products > Tapes > Tapes: Tadpole

White Rubber Coated Fiberglass "Tacky Cloth" Tadpole Gaskets

550°F / 287°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

This high temperature and heat resistant tadpole tape is made from Tuff-Flex™ 550 Fabric tacky cloth.

This is a widely used tadpole tape that provides a resilient and non-absorbent gasket material for service against steam, air, water and gases.

Especially useful where a rough or uneven surface or flange exists.  The fabric is a fiberglass base with a special white rubber formulation.  The fabric is tacky, and has a plastic film surface covering that is removed before installation. Accidental contact of the tacky surfaces with each-other can be pulled apart, however a forceful contact will result in a bond difficult to seperate.

Wire Inserted Version: The fill (widthwise) yarn for this version of the fabric has a twisted brass wired formed with it, providing additional strength, dimensional stability and electrical conductivity/shielding and anti-static properties.

The tail of the tadpole is usually fastened by using metal fasteners, or by using a grab strip to hold the tail in place by compression.  Tadpoles are often used on boilers, ovens, and furnaces where they provide a seal by the door or access panel resting on the bulb.  Also used on butterfly valves to provide sealing.

-  Tadpole Gasket Available widths (Over-All Width) (Custom sizes available):  1", 1.25", 1.50", 1.75", 2.0", 2.5" and 3.0".
-  Tadpole Gasket Bulb diameters: 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4 and 1".
-  Tadpole Gasket Standard lengths: 50 and 100 feet.  Custom by-the-foot lengths also available.
