Rubber Tadpole Seal - 5.4mm Diameter Bulb x 30.8mm Tail x 2mm Wall Thickness
Available by the metre. 10% discount on 30+ metres
This small tadpole section has a 5.4mm diameter bulb with a 30.8mm tail. The wall thickness is 2mm. Tadpole sections can be used on hatches, doors, flood gates and piping between panels on cars. The hollow bulb allows for the seal to compress providing a good long-term watertight sealing solution for most applications within the marine, automotive or industrial industries.
The flange/tail length can be extended or thickened by bonding solid neoprene strip onto it using a good quality contact adhesive such as our A139 or A262 (available from our website). This profile can also be bonded onto most clean flat surfaces such as plastic, wood and metal.
We manufacture this product from high quality EPDM which is a rubber compound suitable for a wide range of every day and industrial applications. This material has a good modular resistance to most substances including most chemicals, UV, air and ozone but is not recommended in environments which may come into contact with oil or fuel. EPDM is around the same hardness (70° Shore A) as the rubber on a car tyre and has an operating temperature range between -40°C to +120°C.
