On the tin!

" It does exactly what it says on the tin!
Use to use PTFE or Boss White, this stuff just feels a better, stronger product when applying it. Won't go back to anything else!

Works every time

By Davidjdiy

" I use this on every compression or threaded joint now, it just works.
Brilliant if you have to re use an old compression joint, smear a bit on the olive and male threads and bobs your uncle. Great.

Plumb like a pro!
3 Dec 2012
By fogster

" Fantastic jointing compound for use over the top of olives in compression fittings (not to be used under the olive though as apparently it can cause the olive to slip). A thick paste that you spread over an olive prior to assembling the compression fitting - makes it much easier to avoid any seepage on the joint. I've read that true pros use this stuff (rather than PTFE tape) on compression fittings and it really is superb. This stuff is nice and thick so doesn't run off the joint, and is suitable for drinking water fittings too.
I actually had a leaking air bleed valve on a new Stelrad radiator - PTFE tape on the bleed screw was a nightmare so I tried a splodge of this - worked a treat until I got a replacement valve!
Recommended - just need to learn to solder next! "

gooey white stuff

By DrWood

" Never suffered from leaking compression joints when served by Thames or Bristol water, plenty of Calcium Carbonate+ just used PTFE tape. Northumberland water appears to have very little dissolved salts.Much to my surprise found compressions always had tiny amount of seepage, used water Hawk no problems at all, will use it all the time now.
