CFP Tadpole Tapes are resilient gasketing tapes formed by folding specially designed cover materials over heat resistant cores and sewing or cementing the tail section to form the characteristic “tadpole” shape. The design provides effective sealing where limited bolt pressure and/or uneven mating surfaces are prevalent. RL7653 tadpole tape uses a specially blended version of Flextra woven cloth treated with silicone aluminum resins to enhance higher temperature capabilities. The cover material is folded over a stainless steel mesh core and stitched with a high ­temperature sewing thread.

The seal is recommended for use in applications where gas flow temperatures reach as high as 1000°F.
Tadpole shaped seals are available in standard sizes of ½”, ¾” or 1″ bulbs with tails of 2″ or less. They are also available in custom-specified bulb diameters and tail widths.

CFP tadpole tapes and seals are used for a wide range of sealing applications. Typical applications include: Aircraft compartments, oven and furnace doors, ducting access doors, dust and environmental control, hooded equipment, clean rooms, other vibration and thermal barriers and crucible lids.
