High Temperature, Heat Resistant Fiberglass
Tadpole Tape / Flange Door Gasket:
Rope Core - Stainless Steel or Inconel Mesh Core
These high temperature, heat & flame resistant and thermal insulating fiberglass (fibreglass or glassfibre) tadpole tapes are used as gasket seals for flanges and doors, and are fabricated with high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1100°F / 593°C. Commonly used as a gasket or seal for oven, furnace, woodstove, pelletstove, and kiln doors and on gate valves.
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.

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.
