Main Form Products > Tapes > Tapes: Tadpole

Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Tadpole Gasket Tape


1350°F / 732°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

FlameShield™ 1500 vermiculite coated fiberglass tadpole tape is a high temperature, heat and flame resistant tadpole that withstand temperatures of 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure.  The base High Temperature fiberglass fabric is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn.  The fabric is then coated with a vermiculite dispersant.

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.

The bulb material can be Fiberglass Rope, Stainless Steel Mesh or Inconel Mesh.

Tested and certified to ASTM E 162, ASTM E 662 and SMP 800-C for surface flammability, smoke and toxic gas generation.

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

The bulb material can be Rope or Stainless / Inconel Mesh.  The metal mesh bulbs have better puchback and less compression set than the rope bulb.
