Ptfe Thread Seal Tape Temperature
1.Ptfe Thread Seal Tape Temperature can be used in general purpose applications such as water and air, or difficult applications such as acids and pure oxygen
2.You can use this tape in both water and air connections!
3.It can be used for plumbers and pipe fitters.
4.It can be used for Microwave drying, food drying, electric insulation, plastic seaming, high temperature sealing, non-stick liners, PVC carpet belt etc.
1.Wash the threads. Wipe them with a cloth. Remove dirt, grime, or any other materials that may impede a tight connection. Clean both the male threads of one pipe and the female threads to the other.
2. Check the threads’ direction. Most pipes’ threads run in a clockwise direction, but there are exceptions to this rule. Always check which way the grooves run before applying tape. If you can’t tell with a glance, fit the male end of one pipe into the female end of the other. Mark which way you need to turn the male end in order for it to screw into the female.
3. Wrap the end of the male threads. Line up the edge of the tape with the outer edge of the threads perfectly. Make sure no amount of tape projects over the pipe’s edge. If it does, peel the tape off of the threads, trim the used strip from your roll, and try again. Cover the pipe’s edge with one layer of tape, following the direction that the threads run (clockwise or counterclockwise). Once you complete a full circuit, wrap a second layer of tape over the first.
4.Continue wrapping inward. Follow the direction of the threads as you go. Wind the tape over them so that half of it covers the preceding layer while the other half covers the bare threads. Pull the tape taut as you do so to make sure that both the grooves and ridges are equally covered. Once the threads are totally covered, cut the tape loose from your roll and pull the end tight over the last threads.
5.Double-check your work. Make sure that you have covered the entire length of the threads with consistently tight tape. Inspect their grooves and ridges to confirm that their shapes are perfectly visible and unblemished by loose tape. Unwrap the tape and start over with a new strip if the original tape appears loose at any point. Otherwise, screw the two pipes together.
