Pipe dope is a sealing paste with PTFE (teflon). It is a non-hardening paste that is designed precisely for the fire sprinkler industry. Pipe dope is applicable for use on all threadable materials frequently used in fire sprinkler systems, including CPVC.
The particulate PTFE also helps impede leaks by expanding in the voids of damaged or defective threads of the pipe or threaded fittings. Furthermore, the lubricating characteristics of the PTFE and other materials in this sealing paste enhance thread seating during pipe and fitting assembly.
