Product Features and Benefits:
When the time comes to replace your gasket, it can be daunting to look at the number of choices out there! We have a huge selection, but for many of our customers the tadpole gaskets, like this 5/8 one, is an ideal choice for their wood stove. Why? Tadpole gaskets are designed with a bulb and tail so that they make your door fit snugly to your wood stove. And, this soft core tadpole gasket is great for flexibility and getting the best possible fit! This gasket, like our others, is designed to handle the intense heat of your wood stove so you won’t have to worry about it failing quickly. While all gaskets eventually need replacing, why go with a low quality one when you can get this?
This tadpole gasket comes with an adhesive backing too! Many people simply use this, but we recommend investing in A. W. Perkins’ Black Furnace Cement. Extra adhesive will ensure that your gasket doesn’t come loose and reduce the efficiency of your wood stove. Plus, this cement can be used to repair minor cracks or holes in your wood stove so that it’s even more efficient. You’re our number one priority, let us show you with our stellar customer service and free shipping!
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.
