Customer Questions & Answers

Does this have adhesive?

Asked by: Melanie
No adhesive. It sticks by being so thin. It seems to mold itself onto the threads, especially if you put some tension on it as you wrap.

Can It be used on shower pipes?

It says Outdoors and Cold Water only. My shower is indoor and I use hot water for showers. Should I be looking for another item?
Asked by: JKDOS
Yes, teflon is safe for human consumption as it is inert, and it can handle very high temperatures, way above scalding! However, in the old days it was made of really pure PTFE and maybe today there are some impurities? Otherwise, I don't know what "outdoors" and "cold water" could mean. I've used it on hot water pipes with no problems...

Can this tape be use for kitchen faucet

Asked by: Stephany
yes. I've done this. Just be neat so little shreds of tape don't work themselves into the pores of the faucet sprayer head, if any.

why the different colors

Asked by: golfer
By convention, different colors identify it's thickness or intended use. The yellow "gas" tape is thicker and thus should be more effective is sealing gas compared to liquid water. Other colors I've seen, like some grey that was 3 times a thick as normal white. However, I think you could just wind more white stuff on gas pipes and get an effective seal. Sealing means enough wraps around the thread, but not too many. Too many fill up the threads and keep the pipes from sealing as well. I've heard 3 turns and I've heard 6 turns.

1/2 in. x 520 in. Thread Seal Tape is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
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 Perfect to stop leakage in the bathroom sink When I got the item, it says for outdoor use only. So I was not sure what that means as I was using this for the plumbing for the bathroom sink. I used a little bit of this tape on the thread, used a pipe wrench to tighten the pieces back together and now I have a clean trap and a very clean with no mess setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight seal...No leaks! I needed to get some thread/pipe valve teflon tape for my kitchen sink. This was the correct width and had plenty of tape for many jobs. I used it to secure my faucet to the pipe. PERFECT! no leaks and very easy to use. Cuts clean and stores inside the lid for its own case.
