Zetex® Fiberglass Tapes and ZetexPlus® Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Tapes are used in a broad range of applications including high temperature gasketing, sealing, packing, lagging, thermal insulation, and encapsulation. They are commonly wrapped around water and steam pipes, hydraulic lines, and auto exhaust.
Zetex® Fiberglass Tapes are woven from highly texturized 6 micron (DE glass) yarns and treated with an over-spray process to preserve the texturized weave in fabrication and use. ZetexPlus® Tapes are then treated with a proprietary vermiculite coating for improved temperature resistance and abrasion resistance. Our fiberglass tapes and high temperature coatings are made from inorganic materials, so they will not produce hazardous out-gassing.
Zetex® Fiberglass Tapes support operating temperatures up to 1000°F / 540°C and peak temperatures to 1300°F / 700°C. ZetexPlus® Vermiculite tapes support operating temperatures up to 1500°F / 815°C and peak temperatures to 2000°F / 1095°C.
Zetex® and ZetexPlus® Tapes are available in Wire Reinforced Tape styles woven with stainless steel wire for added strength and vibration resistance or in Bolt-Hole Tape styles woven without warp yarns in the center for bolt insertion applications. Newtex also manufactures fiberglass tapes treated with a Z-Shield Hullboard coating. Hullboard Tape is designed to be used as lagging aboard ships.
Zetex® and ZetexPlus® Tapes come in 100 ft (30.48 m) rolls unless otherwise noted. Custom widths (up to 8"), lengths, and weaves are also available. Minimum order requirements apply.
All fiberglass tapes are sold in cases of 10 rolls. If you need fewer than 10 rolls, we may be able to refer you to a distributor.
