WRAS approved PTFE tape, 12m long, used for sealing threaded plumbing connections. Often called white tape, thread tape, plumbers tape, Plumbers Tape For Everything or popularly, but incorrectly Teflon tape (a Dupont trade name).

Example of PTFE tape being applied to male thread

Normally you use 3 to 4 laps of tape, starting from the end and in the same direction as the threads.

P.T.F.E. stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene, a product accidentally discovered in 1938 by Roy Plunkett, a DuPont scientist, in New Jersey.
