Presenting our exceptional Tadpole Seal Profile, a highly versatile and widely recognized rubber extrusion known by various names such as Tadpole seals, piping extrusions, bead profiles, tadpole seals, and music note seals. Crafted from high-quality materials including EPDM, silicone, and rubber TPE, our P profiles come in diverse bead and flange sizes, ensuring a perfect match for your specific requirements.

Versatile Performance: Tadpole Seal Profile, highly versatile and commonly used in both industrial and private applications, offer excellent sealing and protective properties. Available in both hollow and solid forms, these profiles cater to a wide range of applications.

Different Manufacturing Compounds:

  1. Rubber TPE: Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) combine rubber and plastic polymers, providing superior “shape memory” ideal for sealing applications. TPE Tadpole extrusions exhibit a wide temperature range, making them suitable for various environments.
  2. Silicone: Silicone rubber, prized for non-reactivity and extreme temperature resistance (-50°C to 300°C), is perfect for outdoor and food contact applications. Our FDA-approved silicone Tadpole extrusions ensure safety in food-related uses, being non-leaching and pyrogen-free.
  3. EPDM: Rubber EPDM, with its closed-cell structure, excels in sealing out water and enduring various weather conditions. Noteworthy chemical resistance makes it perfect for sealing applications, especially in vehicle seals. Additionally, it’s lightweight and easy to cut for convenience.
  4. Neoprene: Offering superior degradation resistance, Neoprene stands out in demanding applications with excellent fire and burn resistance. Despite a narrower temperature range (-6°C to 93°C), Neoprene maintains good chemical stability and flexibility.
