PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion Tape

PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape

The PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion System has been developed for long term protection of metal surfaces that are underground, underwater, or exposed – even in the most severe environments.

It consists of a cold applied system of petrolatum-based PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion Tape, PetroWrap® Primer, and, where contouring is necessary, PetroWrap® Mastic. PetroWrap® adheres to surfaces without heating, even on damp and/or indifferently prepared areas.

The System

 



A.  PetroWrap® Primer Paste is a preparatory primer that displaces moisture, pacifies oxides, and fills small irregularities that occur on the surface to be wrapped with PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion Tape.
B.  PetroWrap® Mastic is a cold applied filler which profiles areas to be tape wrapped by easing contours on pipe joints, flanges, bolts, and other irregular shapes to be wrapped with PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion Tape.
C.  PetroWrap® Anti-Corrosion Tape consists of a non-woven, stitch bonded, synthetic fabric which has been fully impregnated with neutral petrolatum based compounds and inert fillers.
D.  PetroWrap® Overwrap is a 12 mm, tough adhesive tape, designed as added protection for the PetroWrap® System when physical contact with the system is likely.

Application Instructions

1. Remove all contaminants such as dirt, oil, scale and excessive moisture.
2. Brush Petrowrap® Primer (A) evenly over surface to displace remaining moisture and ensure proper adhesion.
3. Press Petrowrap® Mastic (B) into surface irregularities to eliminate air pockets.
4. Wrap Petrowrap® Tape (C) spirally around prepared surface using even tension. An overlap of 55% is recommended to assure total protection.
5. Finish with Petrowrap® Overwrap (D) applied like Petrowrap® Tape to prevent mechanical damage as required.
