We offer a variety of PTFE thread seal tapes.
- Our Medium Density PTFE thread seal tape will get the job done.
- Need a heavier tape? Check out our High Density PTFE thread seal tape.
- Looking for tape specifically manufactured for use with petroleum gas and liquids? Our Yellow Gas Line PTFE thread seal tape is designed just for that.
PTFE thread seal tape is used to provide an airtight seal
and also a lubricant. PTFE thread seal resin is extruded into sheets and rolled
onto log rolls; these are really big rolls of tape. These sheets are cut to
size (1/2" & 1”) and then spooled into the rolls we have used for the
past 30 years. Except for some of the color coded versions (Gas Line, Oxygen
Line, etc.), they all look pretty much the same. How the PTFE thread seal resin
is extruded and the density makes all the difference in the world.
For normal home and office plumbing systems Medium Density PTFE thread seal tape is the accepted standard. Every plumber in the country has a roll in his tool box or on his tool belt.
ZipTie.com is offers a High Density PTFE thread seal tape for use in high pressure systems and in other situations that call for it.
When the application calls for it we also carry the Yellow Gas Line PTFE thread seal Tape.
