Can it be used for diesel pipe thread seal?

Asked by John February 9, 2020

I would say no. It doesn’t seem to be able to hold much pressure. I used it on a threaded water line and it could not stop leaking. I don’t recommend it.

Asked by MilwaukeeHackzallUser January 10, 2018

According to Lasco Fittings, Inc., you should not use any kind of tape sealant on plastic threads (see http://www.lascofittings.com/threads); they say: "The right sealant for threaded joints is non-hardening, compatible with plastic and doesn't add slipperiness... a sealing compound must not lubricate the joint to the point that over-tightening is encouraged." More specifically: "Don't wrap Teflon tape or Teflon paste or pipe dope to add bulk to or to lubricate the joint. Do use a sealant for threaded joints." Though it has PTFE in it, I've found Rectorseal's T Plus 2 to work well for PVC; however, unlike with metal threads, I needed to apply it to both the male and female threads in order to form a leak-free connection with 3/4 inch fittings.

Is this Teflon tape compatible with stainless steel piping?

Asked by CPipp June 7, 2017

I believe so.

Will this tape work for the shower arm installation?

Asked by Qwizz220 May 12, 2017

Yes, but I would check for harmful chemicals such as lead since this tape is not usually used for waterlines. Also it would be way overkill!

Asked by JSF April 11, 2017

Worth a try. It's just like white teflon tape but a little thicker and sturdier, less likely to shred. Don't think the yellow color will leach out.

Can I use this tape for the joint right next to the pilot light?

Asked by VL January 26, 2017

Yes you can. Also can use on gasoline fittings and more.

Why does the '"Details" for this tape say it has a 1-hour drying time.

Asked by Bill August 28, 2016

Probably a typo.

Works as intended!
I've had this product on my LP gas line for over 3 years now that installed myself with no leaks. It's very easy to apply and I got it right the first time. It's very straightforward. Just make sure its wrapped neatly and tight on the threads. Also, make sure to check for leaks. This product did meet my expectations and I didn't find anything to dislike about it. Please hit the thumbs up if this was helpful.

Ran out of pipe dope so off to Home Depot I went. Chased down both pipe dope but more importantly a roll of this yellow teflon tape which is the latest and greatest sealant to use when you reassemble black gas piping. Stuff like this didn't exist over 20 years ago however pipe dope did which I was accustomed to using when installing gas stoves and replacement hot water tanks. Tape like this makes absolute sense especially if you are going to reuse black piping on failed leaking water tanks. Played it safe and used this tape followed by a film of pipe dope. No leaks, looks nice, and now I have alternatives when I misplace either this tape or pipe dope

Kind of hard to give this a bad rating. This thread tape does exactly what it's supposed to do. It made installing a new gas stove an absolute breeze, and best of all no leaks.
