can be used as a sealant in all types of threaded pipe materials like iron, steel, copper, aluminum, special steel, plastics including PVC pipes. Apart from these, the most important characteristics of PTFE tapes to be used as a thread sealant are the tensile strength properties and the density. Performance of the tape is determined by the balance of tensile strength and elongation between the longitudinal and transverse directions & the percentage elongation at break in the transverse direction. Good drape is the ability of the thread seal tape to conform closely to the pipe threads without tearing.
ensure long term high reliable service and easy disassembly. The tapes provide permanently sealed joints which will outlast the pipe under any service condition. The inherent lubricant properties of the tape relieve falling, binding & sticking often encountered with other types of thread sealants. The tape is so pliable that it seals in the roots of the pipe threads and it remains complaint at high and low temperatures and high pressures.
