Don’t get burned by inferior materials. We offer quality American made fiberglass and silica tapes (including dropwarp), tadpole and custom shapes.
High quality fiberglass tapes manufactured to a variety of configurations to meet varied service conditions. Our fiberglass and silica tapes are resilient, non-absorbent gasketing tapes. Ideal for protecting people from contact with hot pipes, and to improve the efficiency.
Bolt Hole Tape
Also called drop warp tape, our bolt hole tape with a special weave that allows you to slip bolts where you need them to hold the tape in place.
We offer multiple grades of fiberglass and silica to allow you to buy the quality tape you need, and not overpay. Tapes are available in various widths and thicknesses.
Our rope is available not only in different grades but also in different densities. Some applications require a soft rope while others require a stronger one.

What options are available in your fiberglass tapes?
The first decision is based on the temperature the textile will be exposed to. Temperature determines is E-Fiberglass and high-grade silicone, Extruded Rubber, Amorphous silica or basalt should be used. Secondly what thickness is required and is a reinforcement needed. Tapes can be made of fiberglass, or silica, depending on the heat requirements. For added heat resistance coatings can be added including Vermiculite, PTFE, Graphite, and silicone.
