Tape is for tapered threaded fittings. Keith is asking about something 
completely different, never used by plumbers. Think of hydraulic hose fittings 
and ask how the end fittings are attached to the flexible hose. There are two 
general types, crimp and reusable. Keith is asking about the reusable type.
