Traditionally, PTFE tape is used to seal threaded piping on valves, actuators, miscellaneous pipe fittings and fasteners.
Krytox™ TS4 PFPE sealant is a paste developed for superior sealing characteristics over what tapes provide. Krytox™ TS4 PFPE sealant can be used in a wide variety of process fluids including water, air, steam, hydrocarbons, acids, bases, chlorine and most reactive gases and liquids.
Krytox™ TS4 allows for low breakaway torque for easy-to-break connections, preventing galling, seizure and thread damage. It is easy to apply via a specially designed applicator, reducing work time, injuries to fingers and damage to process equipment due to loose pieces of tape. Krytox™ TS4 can be reapplied without a need to clean up old sealant.
