Applications with intense heat, high pressure, saturated steam or hot oils can quickly lead to gasket failure if the wrong material is designated for use.
High Temperature Gasket material is necessary for applications that will have continuous temperatures exceeding +750F. Fiberglass gaskets are used in high-temperature environments.
Fiberglass Tadpole Gaskets
- Resilient under pressure, springs back upon load release
- Low coefficient of friction
- Excellent chemical resistance
- More abrasion resistant than natural white. Black colour blends with unit, giving a higher quality appearance
- Graphite black coating is permanent at high temperatures
Boiler Doors, Dust Collectors, Pollution Control Equipment, Brick Manufacturing (Kiln car to Kiln car seal), Industrial Ovens, Industrial Furnaces.
Manufactured by taking high temperature core material and fabricating a high temperature fiberglass cover over the core material forming a bulb for sealing and a tail for fastening or clamping into position. Service rating to 1000°F (538°C). No environmental hazards (non-asbestos). Standard product supplied with fiberglass core material.
Fiberglass rope offers the advantages of economy with more consistency and workability without sacrificing any of the physical, chemical or high temperature characteristics. Service temperature of 1000°F constant. There are two major styles of the rope and both styles are completely incombustible.
One style is a soft and easily compressible material for gasketing, caulking for oven and furnace doors and expansion joints, as well as woodstoves. Another style is a firm, dense material that more resembles twisted Rope. Used in applications requiring a more dense material, yet one which will not unravel during installation.
- Available with Graphite coating
- Available with pressure sensitive adhesive applied to one side of the tape
- Impregnated with PTFE
