Brief Introduction Of PTFE Thread Seal Tape

With this PTFE thread seal tape, there’s no need to use sticky, messy pipe dope when you’re making repairs. The PTFE tape is great for producing quick, clean, air-tight seals. It’s suitable for water, air or gas lines and works on threaded metal or PVC pipe.Quick, clean, air-tight seals;Works on threaded metal or PVC pipe;Ideal for water, air or gas lines.

hread seal tape (also known as PTFE tape or plumber’s tape) is a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film for use in sealing pipe threads. The tape is sold cut to specific widths and wound on a spool, making it easy to wind around pipe threads. It is also known by the genericised trade-name polymer tape; while polymer is in fact identical to PTFE, Chemours (the trade-mark holders) consider this usage incorrect, especially as they no longer manufacture polymer in tape form. Thread seal tape lubricates allowing for a deeper seating of the threads, and it helps prevent the threads from seizing when being unscrewed. The tape also works as a deformable filler and thread lubricant, helping to seal the joint without hardening or making it more difficult to tighten, and instead making it easier to tighten.


Thread seal tape used in plumbing applications is most commonly white, but it is also available in various colors. It is often used to correspond to color coded pipelines (US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand: yellow for natural gas, green for oxygen, etc.).In the UK, tape is used from coloured reels, e.g. yellow reels for gas, green for potable water.

* White – used on NPT threads up to 3/8 inch* Yellow – used on NPT threads 1/2 inch to 2 inch, often labeled “gas tape”* Pink – used on NPT threads 1/2 inch to 2 inch, safe for propane and other hydrocarbon fuels* Green – oil-free PTFE used on oxygen lines and some specific medical gasses* Gray – contains nickel, anti-seizing, anti-galling and anti-corrosion, used for stainless pipes* Copper – contains copper granules and is certified as a thread lubricant but not a sealer
