  • When screwing airline fittings together, metal-to-metal, it is important to ensure air-tight seals. Do this by winding this standard PTFE white tape around the male threads. Leaking joints waste compressed air.
  • The tape is technically called polytetrafluoroethylene and commonly known as PTFE tape.
  • Wrap it about three times round the male thread of a fitting and pull away. For it to be fully effective it must be wrapped clockwise around the thread.
  • The easiest way to remember which way to wind the tape is to hold the fitting in your left hand and apply the tape with your right hand, turning clockwise.
  • Any workshop with an air compressor should have a roll of PTFE tape in the tool box.
