Teflon Tape
Teflon Tape (aka Plumber's Tape) is used to wrap around your threaded brass or stainless steel connections. This will provide a tight seal and prevent leaking. Canada Supplies for Stainless Steel Hardware, Parts, Fittings and Connections
 
Also called a thread seal tape or PTFE tape, the Teflon tape is wound around pipe threads to lubricate and allow deeper thread seating of the threads. It is used in commercial applications such as the installation of plumbing fixtures and heating systems. This helps keep the threads from seizing up especially when being unscrewed. It is also used as a filler to seal a joint or to tighten the seal better.

There are many uses for the Teflon tape and aside from being widely used in plumbing, it can also be used in installing different fittings in a home brew kettle. It is used to wrap around the stainless steel connection to provide a tight seal as well as prevent the wort from leaking out of the kettle. The roll dimension of this particular Teflon tape is 1/2" wide and 480" long, thus it can be used to wrap around a lot of pipe fittings on the brew kettle.

It is a very versatile material in installing couplers and fittings for home brew kettles. To use it on brewery fittings, simply clean the area where the tape will be applied on. Gently wind the tape clockwise, around five or six complete rotations. The tape should tightly wound around the parts. This is necessary so that the Teflon can provide friction in order to align different accessories like ball valves and thermometers effectively.

This particular material can be used for all types of threaded connections on kegs, pots, and other stainless steel brewery equipment. It is a simple tape that has many versatile uses.

What would we do without it? October 11, 2017

Standard teflon tape. You go through this quickly if you're doing your whole brewery. Get two, and use generously.

Teflon tape August 19, 2013
Reviewer: Caleb Kelly from Stratford  
Same as you get at the hardware store, but good to add to an order if you don't have any. Losing a tank of CO2 because you didn't tape your connections sucks.

Same as hardware store. Throw one into your next order. Losing a tank of CO2 sucks. Tape all your gas line threads to keep the gas in.
