High Temperature, Heat & Chemical Resistant PTFE (Teflon) Coated Fiberglass Tadpole Gasket & Tape
PTFE (Teflon) Coated
Fiberglass Tadpole Gasket
- Available tadpole tape widths (Over-All Width): 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 1 3/4, 2, 2 1/2 and 3".
- Tadpole Tape Bulb diameters: 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4 and 1".
- Tadpole Tape Standard lengths: 50 and 100 feet..
This high temperature, heat resistant and chemical resistant tadpole gasket tape offers the advantage of a non-asbestos material with a higher temperature range and with excellent resistance to almost all solvents, caustics and acids.
The base fiberglass fabric is rated to 1000°F / 537°C while the PTFE (Teflon) coating melting point is 620°F / 327°C.
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.
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
