    Default pipe threads with teeth?

    Im installing a rubinet wall mount faucet. The 1/2 male thread pipe that comes out of the back of the faucet ( for wall connection) has teeth or smaill grit made into the thread. Got any info on what this type of thread is called and its purpose? I'm thinking its to give a good grip without having to completely seat the fitting. Any help would be appreciated. H D
