PRODUCT OF THE MONTH: OZ PACK 100 GOLD PTFE TAPE

For sealing all hydraulic fluids, water, gas and steam leaks, a plumber’s best friend is a multi-purpose PTFE tape. Oz Seals has offered an industrial quality PTFE tape, called Oz Pack 100 Gold. This tape is an absolutely leak-free, reliable solution for sealing gas pipe lines. Having 10-times the thickness of conventional PTFE tape means it needs only two wraps to seal. This 100% pure PTFE tape boasts high tensile strength and is non-hardening, making it the safer solution. It has three unique properties that make it an essential repairman’s tool: a high density of 100% pure PTFE, easy to apply and chemically inert.

High Density

The tape carries a very high density of pure Teflon particles, providing excellent strength as it is the highest quality plumber’s tape available. Usually only one overlapping layer is required to effect a seal.

Easy to apply, easy to open

Oz Pack 100 Tape is a non-hardening, easily mouldable sealant tape. Unlike most ordinary sealant tapes, that usually need multiple layers for effective sealing, this product is easier to install because it does not slip as it moulds into the thread with finger pressure. The tape remains flexible and will withstand high pressure during assembly of thread connections. If required it permits easy disassembly of connections, even after years of installation, thus saving equipment for reuse, which otherwise might be destroyed.

Multi-Purpose Use

Oz Pack 100 Tape is chemically inert and can be applied to any types of metal or plastic threads. It is a heavy duty tape, always ready to use. It is non-aging, stays pliable, won’t drip or tear and seals tightly all kinds of plumbing. It is absolutely non-reactive with acids, alkalis, water, salt water, steam, solvents and gases such as hydrogen, propane, nitrogen, butane and ammonia.
