Product Features and Benefits:
What makes tadpole gaskets different from regular ones? Tadpole gaskets feature a bulb and tail so that they fit more snugly with some wood stove doors than regular gaskets. It’s important that your gasket fit well with your wood stove so that you’re getting the most out of it! When gaskets age and need replacing it can reduce how efficient your wood stove burns. This can affect how warm your home is and how quickly or slowly your wood burns! If you need to check your wood stove, take a look at our easy how-to video below! Media Mike goes over a quick and easy way to check your wood stove’s gasket.
Like our other tadpole gasket options, the 5/8 inch gasket has an adhesive backing to make application easier. But, we recommend getting some of our furnace cement for extra protection. Not only can you use it for applying your gasket, you can also use it for minor cracks and pinhole repairs with your wood stove! Replacing the gasket is easy, simply remove the old gasket and thoroughly clean the old adhesive from the wood stove, then apply the new adhesive and gasket! If you have any questions, let us know! We’re happy to answer any questions that you have, just give us a call or use our handy chat feature. Get in touch with us today!
Tadpole gaskets, also known as bulb & seal gaskets, have an adhesive backing to them. These tadpole tapes are usually stove specific. Harmon, Quadra-Fire, and Enviro are just a few stoves that use this tadpole style gasket.
Check your stove's owners manual to know the exact diameter of gasket you need.
Remove old gasket. Thoroughly clean the area. Use a gasket adhesive to attach the new gasket.
We recommend you purchase a gasket cement to adhere the gasket to your stove or insert. Gasket cements are used not only as the "glue" to hold the gasket in place but can also be used to seal minor cracks and pin holes in the stove body.
It is not recommended that you use a sealant as an adhesive. High temperature silicone and sealants are not meant to be used as an adhesive or to fix your stove or insert.
