          I’ve been using this stuff for years. Good product to use when Teflon tape is not recommended (e.g., fuel lines). Also great for hydraulic lines. See photo of rebuilding a power steering pump and using Real-Tuff Thread Sealant for fitting. As the specifications state, “withstands temperatures from -50 deg F to 500 deg F (on steel pipe), and pressures of 12,000 psi (hydraulic),” – definitely meets for my automotive needs.
