Oatey Thread Sealants

No matter your pipe thread sealing job, we've got you covered. Oatey offers a variety of thread sealant tapes and pipe joint compound pastes. From Oatey's low-density PTFE tape to PTFE pipe joint compounds, these products can be used on all threaded pipe, valve and fitting types.

Product Information


White Plumber's Tape

Oatey plumber's tape made of virgin white PTFE provides a clean, positive seal on threaded connections for water or air fittings. Non-hardening, non-toxic, non-stick and non-flammable, it is safe for use on potable water applications.


Yellow Plumber's Tape

Manufactured especially for natural gas, propane, butane, water, oil and chemical lines, Oatey yellow plumber's tape is nonflammable and resists tearing and stretching for easy, efficient application on metal and plastic threads. It is heavier than white tape at 4 mils thick.


Joint Compound

Oatey joint compound is a non-hardening, non-separating, non-toxic paste that lubricates and seals on plastic or metal threaded joints, requiring no cure time for lines with pressure under 125 psi.

Key Features

Easy to Apply

Oatey thread sealants are simple to use and efficient to apply - Oatey plumber's tape resists tearing and stretching, and is packaged on spools in convenient dispenser boxes, while Oatey joint compound comes with a brush top applicator.

Ensures Dependable, Leak-Proof Joints

Oatey thread sealants lubricate and seal all threaded joints. Weather-resistant, flexible, low dielectric constant, chemically inert and usable at low temperatures, Oatey plumber's tapes perform over a temperature range of -450° to 500° F and up to 10,000 psi.

Versatile Applications

From low-pressure to high-pressure piping demands, from plastics to metals, as well as the market’s need for PTFE, Oatey offers pipe joint compound solutions for every type of job. Oatey PTFE tapes can be used on all threaded pipe, valves and fittings carrying acids, solvents, alkalis, steam, hot and cold water, LP gas, natural gas, oxygen and almost any chemical.

I finally got around to having the pump on my deep well replaced so I could do some irrigation and since it was working I decided to run water into my log cabin that’s now being used as a shop, greenhouse and chicken coop. it’s on some adjacent property and was once supplied by a community well so I had to disconnect that to reconnect the well. I had already gutted the cabin of all the pathetic plumbing above the floor line and removed all the alliances like sinks, toilet and hot water tank. I installed a deep sink that drains to the outside just to have some water for the chicks and plants… and to clean their poop off everything. Reconnecting the well was a bear and everything was 1-inch galvanized pipe but the line from the well was a foot lower than the line to the cabin so there were a lot of fittings to remove and a lot more to put back in for the new connection. Teflon just doesn’t do it and I wanted to make sure I didn’t have leaks because I was working in a deep hole and I didn’t want to have to undo anything to get an extra turn so this stuff solved that problem and was easy to apply. I also had to use it under the cabin floor to disconnect all the pipes that went where I had cut them off in the rooms and run a new line to my new sink. If you’re using large pipe it takes a ton of tape and it often still leaks because the threads are sharp and it cuts right through the stuff. When working in tight places this is about the easiest stuff to apply and it seems to work better than some other brands I’ve tried. I use Oatey products a lot and only their products for ABS, PVC and CPVC pipes. For under 5-bucks there was plenty to do about 15 1-inch connections on my pipe job and there’s still a fair amount left. It’s not messy if you clean the applicator off on the inside lip of the can before you start applying it.

This is great stuff. I use it on air compressor and gas pressure washers and it makes a perfect seal every time.

I am pretty much done with Teflon tape now. Not that the tape is not good, but sometimes I apply it and still have to fuss with the connection before the leak stops.

With the Oatey, you apply it and tighten the joint for a proper mechanical connection. At that point, unless there''s a casting failure or fracture of some sort, you have a perfect seal. The compound has Teflon in it, so the friction when torquing the fittings together is so low you can feel the sudden increase in resistance when you have reached full thread depth.

A minor downside to this compound is that it can be messy. It is an opaque off-white and it likes to get everywhere. It will show on anything you get it on. Don''t wear your Sunday-go-to-meetin'' clothes when you work with this stuff. Fortunately, it does not dry so you can wipe it off your work easily with a dry rag and you are good to go. I''m not sure how well it washes out of clothing, but I''m thinking forget about it.

Also is there somebody at the Oatey factory whose job it is to mash the cap brushes flat on all their products so that the bristles splay out in all directions? If so, that person is really on the job. Not a problem, it''s been that way for years.

Did I mention I like it? I do!

I tried this on a whim.. It worked extremely well! But SUPER MESSY and it stays wet.. maybe forever, like a grease/glue mixture.

I prefer Teflon tape for future projects due to how much cleaner it is to use then this product, but I think this “wet” material would definitely create a better seal if you have a leaky fitting you can’t stop with Teflon tape alone.

Works fine for all of my pvc connections, but numerous connections that I used threaded male pvc to female pex failed.
At 75 psi, small droplets of water started to appear after two minutes of use.
Due to the excessive mess...(this product is horrible to work with and cleanup), and the fact that (for me) it does not perform well with dissimilar materials, I will probably not use it again.
I have since replaced it with Hercules Megatape #15110 and found that all threaded joints to be flawless first time everytime.

I can''t thank everyone who wrote a review on the use of this product enough. It is fabulous. We attempted a repair with two other new putty products which did not work. After reading these reviews we decided to try it with recomended hemp. We redid the two connections using hemp on top of and under this compound. It was a pleasure to work with. You could feel the difference in texture and spreadability. You could feel the seal as you tightened the wrench. We cannot recommend this product highly enough. Looking up through the hole in the ceiling watching for water to start running again and it stayed dry as a bone was such a relief. I would never use anything else. Thanks again everyone. You were 1000% correct. This is the greatest and only plumbing putty you will ever need.

I''m a convert from teflon tape. Tape has always been hit or miss for my skill level in plumbing. I bought a jar of this to help with a 5 gallon tank/pump/tap and shower handle that I''ve been working on in our camper van. After laying out all my parts, then assembling a month ago with teflon tape, I had misc drip points in my half dozen connections. I disassembled everything, picked the tape off the threads, and reassembled with this stuff. My wife came out exactly at the time I was done, so I felt under pressure ; ) Clicked the pump on, it pressured up, and not a single drip anywhere.
