Temcoat™ 3000

Temcoat 3000 applied to a pipe surface.

Temcoat 3000 applied to pipe surface. It will then be wrapped with Poly-Ply™, Guard-Wrap® or Wax-Tape®.

Temcoat™ 3000 is a high-temperature microcrystalline wax-based coating compound that will not melt and can be applied at ambient temperatures from 0° to 230°F. It does not require a primer or curing time and is easily applied by hand.

End Use:
Temcoat 3000 is used as an anticorrosion compound for aboveground, underground and underwater metal surfaces. It is used as a coating with a wrapper or as a priming paste with Wax- Tape® systems. Because of its paste consistency over a wide temperature range, it is an excellent material for filling voids in both systems. It can be used for straight pipe, irregular fittings and flat surfaces.

Application Procedures:
Wire brush and wipe the surface clean of any loose coating, rust, scale and foreign matter. Then, apply Temcoat 3000 by hand directly to the surface. At higher temperatures Temcoat 3000 can be applied by brush. On wet surfaces, rub and press firmly to displace moisture and ensure adhesion.

When used on underground applications, to protect Temcoat 3000 from mechanical abrasion, overwrap with appropriate wrapper such as Poly- Ply™, Guard-Wrap™ or #1 Wax-Tape®. For above- ground or vaults overwrap with #2 Wax-Tape®.
