Q. "Any tips on using PTFE thread sealing tape?"
A.First, with plastics try to avoid using a female threaded adapter because it is very easy to split when over tightened (with thread sealing tape it is easy to over tighten). Wrap your PTFE thread sealing tape "with" the treads - that is... pipe in left hand, PTFE thread sealing tape right, roll on clock-wise. Generally at least 3 times. Sometimes adding a good quality thread compound on top of the PTFE thread sealing tape helps seal joints even better.
Q. "I don't see any Teflon® thread sealing tape listed. Do you offer it?"
A.Teflon® is a registered trademark name owned by DuPont. Therefore, we offer PTFE thread sealing tape instead. PTFE is the abbreviation for the chemical composition poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene. PTFE is a heat resistant, non-sticking, chemical and corrosion resistant film cut into these widths and lengths for the purpose of sealing pipe threads. The tape we offer might not contain any actual DuPont brand products in its composition.
Q. "How many wraps of Pipe wrap tape do I need to use for my buried gas pipe?"
A.Most codes require 40 mil protection and so, depending on the thickness of your tape, you will need to apply several layers of tape to the entire length of your pipe that is going to be buried. We do recommend that you check your local codes to make sure you have the most up-to-date information on codes. Also, make sure that you wrap any place where the epoxy has been chipped by the pipe vice or pipe wrench as this will corrode quickly if you don't.
