    For everyone freaking out about this, I will just leave this here....Alcohol increases your
    risk of cancer too...:mug:Uh oh, I'm in trouble

    Maybe, now, the price will come down

    I swear...so I noticed a clear solidified goop near the applicator where I left the remaining
    goop. One half of the Loctite 2046 two-liquid syringe was probably plug-sealed at the
    applicator end when ...

    Truth or myth? --- I've heard that Teflon tape should not be used where a valve is involved,
    theory being that as the thread tightens, the tape can shred and pieces can eventually break
    loose and lodg...

    I'm uncertain about the 567 stuff. Compared it with
    2046:https://tds.us.henkel.com/NA/UT/HNAUTTDS.nsf/web/DF25E134F03D909B882571870000D81B/$File/56

    So I should clean the loctite 2046 off the loose fittings, thoroughly thread them with teflon,
    cover the teflon with that loctite 567 stuff (or was it pipe dope?) and, once cured, it'll be
    sealed, and...

    I guess what I meant is less about the friction reduction and more about the
    "tightening/sealing" effect. On these fittings of mine, even with 10 loops of teflon they're
    not sealing up nice and tight....

    Pipefitter here also, and agree 100% with 2grit. This will solve your problem. Only thing I
    could add is to chase all threads with a tap and die set for the pipe thread size you
    using.Great advice on ...

  • Posted in thread: Sealing pipe threads? on 10-13-2015 at 02:17 PM
    If the loctite's applied to the teflon tape...aren't I screwed the second some force is applied
    to the fitting in the wrong direction? The teflon tape loses all its effect the second you
    unscrew the f...

    I'm a pipefitter by trade and this is how you will never get a leak. Buy some Loctite 567
    thread sealer (not cheap but works best of anything I've ever used). It is food grade. 3-4
    wraps of Teflon t...
