1.Taflon Tape are used to seal, lubricate, and prevent seizure on threaded bolts, studs, and fittings. They are commonly referred to as:
PTFE thread seal tape
2. Taflon Tape are usually made of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a highly crystalline,perfluorinated polymer.PTFE tape has an extremely low coefficient of friction, good chemical resistance, and good heat resistance. Chemical inertness prevents cross-linking and makes PTFE thread tapes is a good choice for applications that involve corrosive chemicals such as liquid oxygen, or caustics such as ammonium hydroxide. Thread tapes can also be made of polyethylene (PE), a low-cost plastic that resists water and many chemicals.
1.To use Teflon tape you first take the end of the tape holding it against the pipe with your thumb of one hand and wrap the tape around the pipe in the direction where the tape will not loosen as you tighten the joint.
2.Hold the spool of tape in your other hand under a slight tension and make sure the tape goes onto the threads, stretching down into the threads, and laying flat without twists.
3.Do not start wrapping right at the end of the pipe, but instead leave several threads bare, then apply the tape up to the end of the threads away from the end of the pipe.
4.Typically a couple of wraps around each portion of the pipe thread are sufficient but that may vary with the quality of the pipe and fittings.
Q: Is the outside surface (the non-adhesive side) smooth or is it textured of PTFE thread seal tape?
A: Both sides of the Teflon tape are smooth. Teflon tape doesn't have an adhesive side. It is very thin and smooths both sides.
Q:Is there any difference between gas PTFE tap and normal water plumbing PTFE tape?
A:Gas PTFE tape is much thicker. It can be used on joints on water pipe work.Regular PTFE shouldn't be used on gas joints but you shouldn't be working on gas pipes
Q. Where is your factory ? Is it possible to visit your factory?
