PTFE tape also called plumbers tape or thread seal tape is used for sealing your threaded pipe joints.
The tape is wound on a spool which makes it easy to wind around your pipe threads.
PTFE Tape is used when fitting compression joints and any screw fit connection where a water tight seal is desired.
- 12 mm tape width
- 12 meter roll length
- Prevents fluid/pressure loss when used correctly
- Does not harden
- Easy to wind around pipes
How much PTFE tape to use:
To create a good seal wrap the PTFE tape around the components several times to create a better seal.
- Always clean the thread pipes before beginning to apply your tape.
- Wrap the tape in the direction of the threaded spiral of the male thread, always beginning with the first thread. (Wrapping the wrong way may result in it coming unwound as you tighten the fitting).
- Do not overhang the tape.
- Keep the edge of the tape parallel to the face of the fitting and wrap all the threads.
- When you have wrapped enough tape around, cut off any unrequited excess PTFE tape.
- Press the PTFE tape firmly to ensure the tape lies flat
- Tighten connection and check for any leaks. If a leak is detected loosen connection and add additional PTFE tape and re tighten until the connection is leak fee.
