Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
550°F / 287°C High Temperature & Heat Resistant "Tacky Cloth" White Rubber Impregnated
Fiberglass TadpoleTapeä Gaskets
High-Temperature Tacky Cloth
Rubberized Fiberglass TadpoleTapeä Gaskets
This high temperature and heat resistant TadpoleTapeä is made from Tuff-Flex™ 550 Fabric tacky cloth (rubberized fiberglass). This is a widely used TadpoleTapeä 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. The fabric will stick to itself once the film is removed.
Wire Inserted Version: The fill (widthwise) yarn for this version of the fabric has a twisted brass wired formed with it, providing additional strength and electrical conductivity/shielding.
550°F / 287°C continuous rating, excellent sealing properties as a gasket material.
Typical applications are as a door and access cover seal for ovens, furnaces and kilns. Also for gate valves and boiler applications.
