Can be used to seal gas pipe?

Asked by: Ili
Yes, functionally this will work. Our first choice will be the yellow PTFE tape which will indicate for an Inspector that the line is a gas line. Only difference is the color of the tape and sometimes a slight difference in density.

Is this the kind you would use when putting on a new shower head?

Asked by: Rholder
I used it on my shower head. Works fine. Wrap carefully so that it doesn't get into the water stream lest it clog the pores of the head. The threads will shred the tape a bit and work the pieces into the threads, so keep the tape on the threads.

1/2 in. x 260 in. PTFE Tape is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth tape which is about 40% thicker than some cheap Dollar store PTFE tape I once bought. Wik... Smooth tape which is about 40% thicker than some cheap Dollar store PTFE tape I once bought. Wikipedia says that federal standard is about 3 mil thickness but I measured thinner than that. However maybe I squeezed it too much with my micrometer. No matter, it is easy to apply and doesn't shred like the cheaper stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect tape This was the perfect tape we were looking for. I was so pleased that I could order online and then pick it up in the store. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly I have used this for everything from faucet installation to toilets and kitchen appliances. I have never experienced any leaks even years after application. It's super easy to install and you just can't beat the price. I would never install water lines without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and Cheap I was hesitate to buy it at first because it's too cheep. But It works great when I used it to seal a cap on a copper pipe.
