As Shaun says never had to use sealant the pipe needs to be cut square to allow the fitting to form a perfect flange to seal the fitting, given a choice I prefer Gastite pipe and their fittings easier to use and the split ring is bigger . Kop

I wrapem
gastite you dont have to tape at all
Agreed Gastite split collar locks onto the outer jacket as well as the pipe creating a seal on them both .

Nice first post. I assume you're something to do with Tracpipe then?

If so, go steady please. You aren't allowed to plug your own products on here.

Thanks

I'm not, I did the Tracpipe installers course on my Gas course 2 months ago, so its still fresh in my mind.

Still waiting for ACS pass results to go through before I can be Gas Safe registered.

Shaun sums up the options very well ( with which I agree). Irrespective of which product you use, a tightness test properly executed identifies problems before you leave site.
