Plumber's Putty


Is PP good for higher temperature applications?

I have seen PP used on the return line to seal out condensation for AC systems and the return line is generally hot during the heating months.

Plumbers putty is a substance used to make watertight seals and it remains soft for a long time after it is used and should not be used in a hi heat situation as the putty would break down and cause leaks.
