I've been using Loctite brand 565 (low strength) and 592 (medium strength) for years with good results.

Perhaps. Then again, I'm not an airsmith so I'm probably doing everything wrong.

Ummm teflon tape bits have been the plague of tons of markers. The smallest piece can get into a solenoid and cause headaches. And headaches that most people will chase forever before taking the noid apart at a last ditch effort.

I have personally received 3 used guns 1 cocker, and 2 timmies that have had Teflon bits causing problems from previous owners.

There really isn’t need for Teflon tape anywhere on a marker.

Permatex makes a good pneumatic and hydraulic thread sealant.

But you would already know this because you work at a paintball field right.

Teflon tape is for amateurs. Once you start using thread sealant you'll be kicking yourself for not doing it sooner. Not only does it work better, it looks better too.

And takes hours to cure. Go ahead, have a customer come into your shop with a leak, fix it with a liquid sealer and tell them they can't air their marker up for 24 hours. I guarantee about half of them will come back saying the leak was not fixed and you know it's because their aired up the marker early. But, you can't accuse all of them of that because then you risk losing customers. Not to mention even if they did wait you don't want to hold every customers marker for at least 24 hours because of simple leaks. Some of them drive a ways to come see you

The 3rd marker I owned, dm6, I was a idiot and took out the set screws that channel noid air through the marker. They never need to come out. I sent it into a shop to fix who used liquid sealer, 2 weeks later and about 3 tries it came back to me still leaking. I took half an hour at home and Teflon, I still own that marker, it still has the same tape in it from 9 years ago, still doesn't leak

Again, I've been doing it for about 10 years and when it's done right you don't have problems. Companies say you can't do it because it's one of those things that can cause issues when done wrong but also remember companies like ninja use tape on their guage and fill nipples

I use blue loctite period. 10/15 min it’s good to go. I have no problems with leaks, or parts being stuck.

You asked for a thread sealant. You didn’t ask for a fast setting sealant. I do not think there is a fast setting sealant. Most of them stay pliable for months. Just like plumbing pipe sealant.

I have never seen thread tape on my regs of any tanks. I think they use like a 565 sealant and let it dry. Like most macro fittings come with the sealant already on the threads.

For my own projects or stuff that is going to take a while to build the sealent makes sense.

For customers looking for a quick fix or if you're at the field and something springs a leak tape makes more sense
