Questions & Answers

Can this product be used on copper pipes carrying propane gas (gas is used to run a clothes dryer and kitchen stove)?
Asked by: qz
This below is directly from the PDS (Product Data Sheet) from their website: "RectorSeal Tru-Blu is recommended for pipe made of galvanized steel, iron, brass, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, PVC, polyethylene, and reinforced fiberglass." "RectorSeal Tru-Blu is recommended for pipe carrying: • Acids, dilute • Air, compressed • Ammonia, gaseous • Aliphatic solvents • Brine • Carbon dioxide, gaseous • Caustics, dilute • Cutting oils • Diesel fuel oil • Freons, all • Gasoline, leaded and unleaded • Heating oils • Hydraulic oils • Inert gases • Jet fuel, JP-3, 4, and 5 • Kerosene • Manufactured gases • Mineral oils • Natural gas • Nitrogen, gaseous • Petroleum solvents • Refrigeration oil • Steam • Sugar, liquid • Vapor propane piping • Water, hot or cold • Water gas Not recommended for oxygen." I would think that propane gas would be considered a "Manufactured gases" but to make absolutely sure, I would visit their website (https://www.rectorseal.com/rectorseal-tru-blu/) and make a contact with the company and find out, for sure, that using it for propane gas lines was acceptable. I hope that this information helps.

Could I use this to seal a needle valve threaded into a CO2 regulator?

Asked by: Minh
Depends on your reason for wanting to seal the needle valve but I personally would not use a pipe sealant on NEEDLE VALVES USED IN ANY TYPE OF GAS REGULATOR. Reason is that gas regulators are precision instruments and do not work when pipe sealant migrates into areas where it shouldn't be. If your needle valve is leaking, then perhaps a packing gland seal can be ordered and used to replace the leaking on. Also needle valves by definition have very fine threads to allow fine adjustments to be made and those threads will not tolerate the heavy pipe sealant as they are designed to be turned for adjustment and pipe sealants are not used in moveable threaded assemblies, just for fixed thread sealing applications. If you do not intend to adjust the needle valve or change your regulator gas pressures after sealing the needle valve, perhaps it could be used to stop a gas leak but this is not a first choice compared to fixing the leaking packing gland or washer used to seal the needle valve.

How long does it take to dry?

I have applied it on threaded pvc pipe .Its been 24 hrs and it has not dried yet.
Asked by: nilay
Nilay, If the PVC is for potable water or outside irrigation lines, you can safely pressurize the line and return it to service after assembly and the normal water pressures under service (less than 60psig, right?) should not displace the pipe sealant, so in other words no leaks after pressurizing the line with water. But your sealant may not dry / harden off for weeks! Although this sealant states it is safe for PVC and ABS plastic, my choice is to never use a solvent based pipe sealant on polymer plastic threaded couplings as the solvent can structurally weaken the polymer over time and exposure time is rated on years. The Rectorseal Tru-Blu pipe sealant contains up to 20% DAA alcohol and that is actually a very strong ketone based acetone solvent that can soften and dissolve PVC and ABS plastic fittings. I always use PTFE tape for polymer plastic threaded coupling and never use liquid or paste pipe sealants. I just do not enjoy digging up buried water lines for fun when they rupture in the middle of the night! When will your Rectorseal Tru-Blu pipe sealant finally finish curing? There is no simple answer as this is dependent on fitting size, temperature at application and service conditions. For potable water applications, this sealant can be used and fittings returned to service immediately after application. For fuel service and exposure to liquid hydrocarbons, please contact Rectorseal for further advice on cure time and pressure rating. Heat exposure and time will result in higher viscosity and hardening of sealant. These hardening pipe sealants cure very slowly compared to chemical crosslinking two part curing sealants made and sold by Henkels Loctite hermetic threadlockers, Permatex form-a-gasket sealant or silicone chemistry elastomeric sealants. From the Rectorseal Tru-Blu product datasheet: Cure times will vary with application and service conditions. http://www.rectorseal.com/web-media/Rectorseal-Tru-Blu_PDS.pdf For additional technical information, call Rectorseal product support at 1-800-231-3345

Can this be used on potable water lines, hot water heater expansion tank but on the cold side?

Asked by: Mike
Yes. This substance has a high resistance to heat (>400 degrees F). Just ensure when you apply to the threads, screw the pipes together and ensure it’s dry before letting water run through it.

It dries quick but still remains flexible as to allow you to unscrew the fitting that you have used it on with ease, I would assume that it is because of the PTFE in combination with the proprietary mixture of chemical components. I used this on a inline water valve for my dishwasher along with PTFE tape on all connections and none of them leaked. That is exactly what I wanted, to do the job of installing the inline water filter and not have it leak, anywhere. Excellent product, will always use it in the future.

This should do the trick on screw threads and shafts as the carrier liquid doesn't evaporate or wash away like Never-Seize. This advice was given me some years ago by a commercial boat mechanic in Alaska, where annual rainfall could be measured in feet.
