Pipe Wrap

Pipe wrap is a fiberglass or PVC tape used for surface protection. It is easy to use, cost-effective, and durable in pipe repair. It repairs pipe leaks and protects against moisture damage, corrosion, and abrasion. It is a polymer tape that adheres to fiberglass, concrete, and all kinds of pipes, joints, and elbows.

Pipe wrap protects pipes from moisture, acids, alkalis, sunlight, and corrosive salts. It also resists bacterial and fungal growth. Pipe wrap can be used in different shapes and sizes and is also usable on both dry and wet surfaces. It can provide thermal insulation to pipes, helping to maintain the temperature of the fluid inside the pipe. This is particularly important in industries where temperature control is critical, such as in the oil and gas industry or in heating and cooling systems. Pipe wrap is used to make pipes waterproof, ensuring that they remain sealed and watertight. This is important in applications where water infiltration could cause damage or contamination.

Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is a significant concern in the piping industry, where corrosion can occur beneath insulation materials. Pipe wrap, when used as part of a comprehensive insulation system, can help prevent CUI by providing an additional layer of protection.

Some benefits of pipe wrap include:

  • Allows for emergency offline leak repair
  • Delivers safe drinking water
  • Bonds to any pipe
  • Quick to set and easy to use
  • Repairs leaks up to 450 psi
  • Can be applied in dry conditions
  • Resistant to most harsh chemicals
