Installation

  1. Surface Preparation


    De-pressurize pipe, remove all soft coatings and prepare pipe surface (NACE-3 minimum). Wipe the surface with a solvent such as Acetone, Toluene, or MEK.

  2. Plug the Leak


    Mix the epoxy putty until uniform in color and use to plug the leak(s). Smooth the putty to avoid sharp edges – shape the filler to the profile of the pristine pipe. Mix and apply adhesive primer to the repair zone.

  3. Apply Pipe Wrap®


    Remove the Pipe Wrap® from the foil pouch and immerse in water for 3-5 seconds. Wrap the material around the pipe – apply uniform tension by pulling tight during the application.

  4. Complete Installation


    Grip and massage the resin back into the wrap until hardened (3-5 minutes). Wait 30 minutes before re-pressurizing the pipe. A top coat may be applied after two hours.
