Tadpole gaskets tend to show signs of wear over time. Between opening and closing our stove door, window cleaners, and other normal use and maintenance, at some point you will notice that your high temp door seal needs to be replaced. We can help you find this unique "bulb and tail" gasket!
These high strength wood stove gaskets have an adhesive backing for easy application, and feature a core that is tightly wrapped in a fiberglass material. The core can be semi-rigid and foil wrapped, or have a soft fiber center. It is important to know that tadpole tape is usually "stove specific", meaning that a certain style is recommended for use on different stove brands such as Harmon, Quadra-Fire, or Enviro.
Our semi rigid core tadpole gaskets are available in 5/8 inch and 1/2 inch thicknesses, while our soft fiber core variety is available in a 5/8 inch thickness. Both styles offer an ultra-snug fit along your stove door, and we will cut the gasket to your desired length. While the adhesive backing is strong enough to adhere to your window, a little added assurance from a high-temperature cement is always a good idea! We recommend A.W. Perkins® 2000° F cement for a reliable seal!
