What is threadseal tape?

Thread seal tape (also known as PTFE tape, Telflon tape, or plumber’s tape) is a multipurpose tape used specifically by plumbers to wind around pipe threads, helping to seal the joint. It can be used to aid the joining of pipes with threaded joints, or to facilitate installation of products such as tapware or showers which attach to the threaded water pipe protruding from the wall. The tape lubricates, allowing for a deeper installation, a better seal, and an easier removal as they prevent the pipes from sticking when disassembling the joint. We have an extensive range of BOSTON Tapes and Sealants. Our water thread sealing products including standard and high-density pink tape or the trade-quality, high-density blue tape. Our yellow gas tapes are all AGA Approved and can be used with all common gases and liquids. Our range also features a high-density grey thread sealing tape which conveniently seals both water and gas threads.
