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.

723 tadpole tape features a stainless steel wire mesh core with a fluoroelastomer coated woven Flextra cover material. The seal is recommended for operating temperatures below 400°F (204°C) with excursions to 750°F (399°C).

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.
