Blue Monster® OXY-CLUTCH Green Oxygen PTFE Thread Sealing Tape

Thread Sealant for critical oxygen-service sealing applications

Blue Monster OXY-Clutch Green Oxygen Tape is a maximum density, PTFE thread sealing tape designed specifically for oxygen lines. This special thread sealing tape is manufactured from PTFE resin mixed with a small amount of solvent. For normal applications it does not matter if the solvent is not removed from the finished product. However, when operating in a pure oxygen environment remaining volatiles can react with the oxygen and cause an explosion. So Blue Monster OXY-Clutch Tape is put through a rigorous process to remove the solvent.

Blue Monster OXY-Clutch Tape is a thick, maximum-density thread sealing tape ensuring an effective seal. Also, as an important safety feature, Blue Monster Oxygen tape is pigmented green to ensure that the fitter or inspector can easily recognize that the tape is compatible with oxygen.
