Wax-Tape® #1, #2 and HT-3000 anticorrosion wraps are composed of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers, corrosion inhibitors and other ingredients (no clay fillers) saturated into a nonwoven, nonstitch bonded synthetic fabric, forming a tape wrapper. They also contain no siliceous mineral fillers.
For application on aboveground and belowground metal surfaces, pipe or fittings to prevent corrosion.
For all Wax-Tape wraps, wire brush and scrape the surface clean of dirt, loose coating and loose rust. Apply a thin film of primer. If the surface is wet, cold or rusty, rub and press on primer to displace moisture and ensure adhesion. Then wrap the Wax-Tape wrap, using a 1” overlap. On straight pipe, apply slight tension to ensure contact with surface. On irregular surfaces, allow slack so the wrap can be molded into conformity. In either case, press and form the tape so there are no air pockets or voids under the tape. Also, press and smooth out the lap seams to ensure they are sealed. The tape does not require curing or drying time, so it can be backfilled immediately. For belowground pipes that are 10” or larger, apply a Trenton outerwrap. For aggressive soil conditions, a Trenton outerwrap, a rock shield, or select backfill should be considered. For aboveground applications of Wax-Tape HT-3000 wrap, Trenton MCOTM Outerwrap is recommended.
