Quick Overview

Teflon tape is a specialized type of tape used in plumbing to seal connections throughly, ensuring that pipes will not leak. This tape is also referred to as Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tape, with “Teflon” being a trademark of the DuPont company. It is available at most hardware and home supply stores, usually in the plumbing section, and it is a standard part of the toolkit of people who do any sort of plumbing work. Typically, PTFE tape is white, because this is the natural color of the substance. Some companies make color coded PTFE tape, with different colors being designed for different types of plumbing. The Teflon tape used for gas plumbing, for example, is thicker to prevent gas leaks, and it may be coded blue or yellow. The tape is not adhesive, tending to cling with pressure but being easy to move and reposition. Teflon tape is designed for use in pipes with tapered threads. To use the tape, a length is wrapped around the male or threaded end of the pipe, and then the female end of the pipe is connected. It is important to make sure that the Teflon tape does not overlap with the end of the pipe, as this can cause problems in the future, because the tape may block the pipe. Teflon tape is a very useful thing to keep around the house.
