Product description

  • Construction: 2-layer system:
  • First layer: Visco-elastic low preheat adhesive sealant.
  • Second layer: Thick-walled, radiation cross-linked, high density polyethylene with PCI (Permanent Change Indicator)large radius bends

WaterWrap System-B is designed to be applied with a minimum preheating and is ideal for large diameter pipe. The installation is carried out directly on the cleaned and dried (pre-heated) pipe surface. The use of the 939 filler is required when the step down on the weld bead is >= 1/4".

The filler 939 is a thick mastic-like butyl rubber designed to fill and smooth transition areas. The semi-tacky composition remains flexible and easily moulded in place to conform around irregular shapes. During installation, the heat-shrinkable sleeve is wrapped around the pipe and heat is applied.

The heat activated backing contracts to form a tight fit around the joint eliminating entrapped air and filling the smallest of crevices with a high quality, corrosion inhibiting Visco-elastic adhesive sealant. The permanently cross-linked polyolefin outer layer forms a tough barrier against mechanical damage and moisture.
