Thread Tape:

Thread Tape is plastic based and is used to seal Threads where Liquid or Air has to be contained.  

Using Thread Tape:

Wind the Thread Tape onto the Bolt's Thread in an anti-clockwise Direction so that it will pull itself on as the Bolt tightens. Alternativley, hold the Thread Tape Reel in one hand and turn the Bolt clockwise to pull the Thread Tape onto the Bolt.
Thread Tape has been fitted to the Mounting Bolts of the Fuel Pump to prevent Oil from travelling along the Threads. Click to Enlargen. Photo by T.
