PTFE thread seal tape is used to provide an airtight seal and also a lubricant. PTFE thread seal resin is extruded into sheets and rolled onto log rolls; these are really big rolls of tape. These sheets are cut to size (1/2" & 1”) and then spooled into the rolls we have used for the past 30 years. Except for some of the color coded versions (Gas Line, Oxygen Line, etc.), they all look pretty much the same. How the PTFE thread seal resin is extruded and the density makes all the difference in the world.

For normal home and office plumbing systems Medium Density PTFE thread seal tape is the accepted standard. Every plumber in the country has a roll in his tool box or on his tool belt.

Coast Tape is able to offer our customers a High Density PTFE thread seal tape for use in high pressure systems and in other situations that call for it.

When the application calls for it we also carry the Yellow Gas Line PTFE thread seal Tape.
