Mill-Rose Stainless Steel Thread Tape
- Mill-Rose Stainless Steel Thread Sealing PTFE Tape is a unique thread sealing tape which prevents stainless steel fittings from galling or seizing during assembly and disassembly. The tape is thicker (.0045" +/-10% and denser (2.50/grams/cubic centimeter +/-110%) than most tapes. The added thickness and density also ensures an effective seal up to 12,000 PSI. (Not to be used with oxygen systems.
- Applications: Stainless steel pipe systems, including joints and connections, bolts, nuts, valves, flanges, studs, threaded fittings, bushings, plugs and assemblies. Also used for protection from corrosion, seizing, galling, rust carbon fusion and galvanized pitting.
- Composition: 90% PTFE/10% nickel
- Color: Silver
- Length: 260" (6.6m)
- Width: 1/2" (12mm), 3/4" (19mm), 1” (25mm)
- Thickness: 0.0045" +/-10% (0.115mm +/-10%)
- Density: 1.6g/cm3 +/-10%
