A bit more detail of how you want to seal two pipes would help.
Are they leaking along their length?
What are the pipes made of?
Are they water pipes, drain pipes or what?
Is it a joint that is leaking?
That will do for starters.

The silver tape with string like internals. We call it racers tape because all the car guys use it it in motorsport.

Or the self amalgamating tape, which is supposedly what it is for. No idea where to buy it here though. Last lot i bought was from a seller on ebay.

I agree that self amalgamating tape, Auto Fusionar Cinta in Spanish I have bought it in Leroy Merlin, might be suitable for a short term repair.
But it would nice to know exactly what the OP means by "seal two pipes"

Self-amalgamating tape is called cinta de caucho in my local hardware store.

I have used this with some success:
