Made of polypropylene, these fittings won’t deteriorate when exposed to the damaging effects of ultraviolet light and are suitable to use outdoors. They have the chemical resistance to withstand a wide variety of acids, solvents, and other harsh substances. Apply a non-hardening, plastic-compatible sealant to the male threads to prevent leaks. Tape or sealants with PTFE are not recommended for plastic-to-plastic threaded connections. When making a threaded connection be careful not to overtighten the threads. To prevent cracks and leaks, finger tighten the fitting, then wrench-tighten one to two turns.
Warning: Never use plastic pipe fittings and pipe with compressed air or gas.
