RS PRO PTFE Extra Thick PTFE Tape

This exceptional RS PRO Extra thick PTFE thread seal tape is also called plumbers tape or thread seal tape and is often used piping and ductwork application for sealing threaded pipe joints. Its non-adhesive backing makes it easy to handle, and the extra thick tape allows for a smaller overlap. The tape is sold cut to specific widths and wound on a spool which makes it easy to wind around your pipe threads.

Some of PTFE’s key material characteristics are the fact that it’s both extremely low friction, and is hydrophobic (meaning it repels water). This makes PTFE tape incredibly useful for a wide range of plumbing and pipework jobs with pipe fittings etc.
