no you need to use Anti-seize. if homedepot doesn't have it try your local auto parts store
It was room temp
Although there's nothing that says you can't use it on pvc I would note that teflon tape and thread seal compound is designed for NPT connections ( threaded connections where the threads are slightly tapered and teflon tape or thread seal compound is used to seal the actual threads) nearly all pvc connections found under the sink however are compression style fittings with a pipe end with threads a nut and a compression washer to make the seal, no compound or tape is needed for those style connections ( one exception might be for ease of disassembly, though even that reason would generally be reserved for metal compression fittings where the tape can help with disassembly down the road when some corrosion can make things difficult) I'm attaching a picture of compression fittings with no need for tape....
RoyalCreations, we will need more information about your heat sealer before we can determine whether this seal tape would work. Please call our Support team at 1-800-488-6156, and we'd be happy to help. Thanks!
Generally one and a half wraps will provide a good seal.
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.
Why does Home Depot use essentially a community forum to answer technical questions? I contacted the manufacturer directly and thay said right up front that thier thread tape has only been approved for outdoor use and cold water only - irrigation,
I asked the manufacturer and the tape is not approved for indoor or hot water.
Yes. I used on a shower head. Hot & cold water tested....no leaks!
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.
