High Temperature & Heat Resistant Rubberized Fiberglass "Tacky Cloth" Tadpole Gaskets
High-Temperature Tacky Cloth
Tadpole Gaskets
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.  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

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.
