Is this tape can be use on gas pipe ?

Asked by Bogar10 July 25, 2020

Answer

This product can be used on natural gas lines, but yellow PTFE tape is recommended as it’s a visual sign to inspectors that it meets code. White PTFE is single density, while yellow PTFE is double density, so it’s heavier and requires less wraps than the white. Yellow is a requirement in some areas, so best to just go with it to be safe—Oatey makes yellow PTFE tape as well.

can you use this teflon tape for gas connection

I have used it for high pressure air lines and it seals tight, so I know it will work, but there is a version of this that is specific for gas lines. It is colored yellow.

Answer

The main difference on the tapes are a variance in density and color. Yellow is the universal color for gas and would tell anyone working around those joints that natural gas runs through the lines. Tape can be used in most applications and will work in yours.

If you have more dry tape use that. Also, it provides an excellent seal so maybe the leak is caused by something else, such as the tread on the "small pipe". Lastly, you may want to snug down the nut on the pipe.

This is a good quality sealing tape, feels thicker and is easier to work with than the cheaper ones i've used in the past, and I end up using less. To the people commenting that it's better than chinese made tape, hate to break it to you but this tape is also made in china. Plenty of good quality stuff comes from there, and here too, cheap stuff from anywhere, china, here, and other places is gonna be, drum-roll please, you guessed it: cheap! Anyway, I think it's worth the extra cost.

Worked Better Than Compound
I had a very very slow drip on just one connection after replacing all of the PVC on my pool filtration system. I disassembled the single slow drip connection twice and reapplied thread compound. The slow drip continued. I wrapped the threads with three layers of this tape and tightened the connection 2 full turns past hand tightened. Finally, no more drip.

Thick & Nice to Work With
Found this USA manufactured tape to be a nice upgrade from from the rolls of Chinese tape they pile in those bins. This stuff is thick, dense and and a cinch to install, especially when used on coarse threading such as NPT (National Pipe Taper) and is a wonderful alternative to messy, "pipe-dope". Well worth the extra buck or so over the cheap stuff! :)
