Product Information

Roll of PTFE tape, 12 metres long, used for sealing threaded plumbing connections. Often called "white tape", "plumber's tape", "Plumber's 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.
