    You use the tape and the dope and do it real tight. This is just a stupid way to give yourself minor burns. The threads are supposed to deform, the male threads should be softer than the female, and the tapered threads smush everything together.

    So, I have the opposite problem. The nozzle of a 3D printer always comes loose. Now I think it is because it expands as it is heated. Besides over heating it and torqueing hard, do you have any other tricks?

      Maybe just a turn or 2 of teflon tape along the thread. I have to say I've never heard of them coming loose even when hot.

    I don't think this is true... Sure, it's never going to come loose, but there will still be a spiral leakage path. One end will have pressure on one side of each thread, and a gap on the other, while it's reversed at the other end. The fluid can still seep along the gap, move around the edge of a thread in the middle, then use the other gap to go the rest of the way. Just use an o-ring and don't rely on threads sealing...

    An easy way to seal a pipe thread is to use a locktite anaerobic flange sealant, I like 510, high strength high heat. resists gas and many other things accept heat above its heat range. Which makes it easy to get back apart. Not too much more than hand tight for a good seal after 20 minutes. If you want to get that fitting back apart after the heat shrink trick (which does not not stop that helical path if the threads aren't so good.) support the fitting from the back side and strike it with a hammer on three adjacent sides, the female will become large. When you hit a supported ring it never or almost never becomes smaller. Just did it no wrenches ten minutes five threads 150 psi air no leaks, soaped. Aehh
