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.
