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.
Fiberglass TadpoleTapeä Gasket
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant vermiculite coated fiberglass TadpoleTapeä will 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.
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.
The bulb material can be Fiberglass Rope, Stainless Steel Mesh or Inconel Mesh.
Typical applications are as a door and access cover seal for ovens, furnaces and kilns. Also for gate valves and boiler applications.
