What is PTFE Tape For?

PTFE Tape Its Uses

It depends on which PTFE tape you are looking for. There are two kinds. One is the extremely common type that is used for sealing threads on pipework.

This is usually white in color and is supplied in the form of a PTFE film. The film is wrapped around threads and prevents fluid or air from leaking.
