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.
