Plumbers tape.

Kind of a misnomer. It is plastic or steel strapping with holes every inch.

Thanks.
Inspector told my HVAC guy to use some kind kind of gasket between the steel strap and the PVC exhaust pipe. I like the idea of the plastic. Never seen it before. Is it strong or king of soft and stretchy?

nobody around my area uses plastic strap. It's either p-tape or occasionally Ape Tape.
Based on code I've read- plastic could not be enforced.

Interesting. I'd be afraid that metal tape would eventually wear a hole in plastic pipe. I use the white plastic tape, but of course, I'm not a pro.
