To apply Fluoramics LOX-8 Full Density PTFE Tape, clean the male and female threads of any dirt or oil and starting two threads back from the end of the fitting, apply two wraps of the thread seal tape in the direction of thread rotation. Be sure to keep tension on the tape while wrapping. If desired, or for large or critical connections, apply thread sealant paste over the tape.
