Maybe we will run into a water leak in the pipeline. How can we repair the pipeline in the shortest time? The best way is to use Thread Seal Tape, which is different from ordinary transparent tape. When faced with different types of pipe leakage problems, different types of pipe tapes can also be selected according to specific situations. So how to choose the appropriate pipe repair tape?


Different kinds of pipe tape:


For common pipeline leakage problems, there are generally two types of pipeline tapes to choose from, the first is ptfe thread seal tape, and the other is silicone tape, that is, self-fusing tape.

1. Silicone tape


Silicone tape is an amorphous material with high activity. Insoluble in water and any solvent, nonpoisonous and tasteless, stable in chemical properties, and does not react with any substance except strong alkali and hydrofluoric acid. Silicone pipe sealant tape has excellent heat resistance, cold resistance, dielectric property, ozone resistance and atmospheric aging resistance. The outstanding performance of silicone rubber is that it can be used for a long time at -60℃ (or lower temperature) to +300℃ (or higher temperature).


Silicone pipe fitting tape can be divided into inorganic silicone tape and silicone tape according to its properties and components:


Inorganic silicone tape is a kind of highly active adsorption material, which is usually prepared by the reaction of sodium silicate and sulfuric acid, followed by a series of post-treatment processes such as aging and acid bubbling.


Silicone pipe tape for gas lines is composed of silicon-oxygen chain, and the side chain is connected with other organic groups through silicon atoms. Therefore, the structure of silicone pipe thread sealant tape contains both "organic groups" and "inorganic structures". This special composition and molecular structure make it combine the characteristics of organic substances with the functions of inorganic substances.

2. Teflon tape


Ptfe tape for gas has smooth surface, good adhesion resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance and excellent insulation performance, and is widely used in packaging, thermoplastic, composite, sealing and heat sealing, electronic and electrical industries, etc. Generally speaking, people will use gas ptfe tape to paste some leaked pipes, which has the function of repeated pasting. Teflon tape reinforced by fabric has the characteristics of high strength, which can be used repeatedly and is easy to replace. When sticking the leaked pipeline, first clean the pipeline at the leaking part, and then stick the Teflon tape directly on the pipeline. The operation is very simple and easy to replace. Teflon 12mm pipe thread tape can save the complicated process of spraying PTFE anti-sticking coating on the surface of pipelines, and can also play an anti-sticking role. Moreover, the PTFE tape is resistant to high temperature, will not fall off after being firmly stuck, and has a long service life. Moreover, ptfe tape for water is convenient to use, and it is not necessary to disassemble and transport the pipeline. The pipeline can be restored to work by winding the Teflon tape directly, which can reduce the labor intensity and be beneficial to the protection of equipment. The comprehensive cost of using Teflon tape is low.
