Extreme High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Silica Tadpole Gasket Seal
Silica Tadpole tapes are fabricated with high Silica fabric that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 2000°F / 1093°C.

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 Silica 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.
