The density of the PTFE in the tape goes a long way to determining the tapes quality.

An easy way to compare different wraps is to open a roll and squeeze the roll.

The standard big box store low density ptfe tape will deflect more than our economical wrap and our economical wrap will deflect more than our premium wraps. That is directly related to the amount of PTFE in the tape.

The amount of voids in the PTFE tape will effect the quality of the tape.
