How To Use PTFE Tape

- Feb 23, 2016 -

PTFE tape is a very thin white tape used to wrap the threaded ends of metal and plastic pipes to lubricate the threads and prevent leaks where pipes join. The thin tape fills the minute gap between the male and female pipe threads stopping water leaks. The alternative is to use pipe dope, a paste type material which also seals and lubricates, allowing for a tighter joint. There is also a another variety of thread seal tape that is yellow. The yellow tape is heavier and is for use on gas line connections. Never use regular, white, Teflon tape on gas connections.
