RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE FOR SEALING PIPE THREADS

Banjo's recommendations are as follows:

We DO NOT recommend using pipe tape. Pipe tape enlarges the outside diameter of the male thread and may cause the female thread to split.We recommend using a pipe thread sealant. Use on clean tapered threads. Apply a thick even coat on male threads using brush applicator.  For pipe diameters smaller than 1¼" apply to male threads only. For 1¼" and larger sizes apply to both male and female threads. Avoid applying   excessive amounts. Hand tighten joints and then torque another ½ to ¾ turn until threads seal.
