Basic Use

Tapecoat HT-MB High Temperature Tape is designed to protect buried and submerged pipe, pipe type cable, pipe joints, fittings, tanks, insulated steam lines, and other metal surfaces from corrosion and electrolysis over a wide range of in-service temperatures up to 250°F (121°C) in constant or peak load operating conditions. Tapecoat HT-MB may be applied to new pipelines and to pipelines operating at elevated temperatures.


Tapecoat HT-MB is a pre-formed, cold applied, self-adhering coating that is impermeable to water and salt. The specially formulated "high temperature" adhesive is laminated to a woven polypropylene backing. The very aggressive adhesive is kept from permanently bonding to its backing by a tough, easily removed polymer release liner, which also prevents contamination of the adhesive prior to its use.

Surface Preparation

Surface must be dean and dry. Moisture, dust, dirt, rust or other foreign matter should be removed by scraping or wire brushing. SSPC-SP3 Power Tool cleaning is recommended. Remove oil and grease, etc. with suitable detergent. Remove salt and other contaminants by high pressure fresh water cleaning. Optional cleaning method is SSPC 6 Commercial Blast.



  • Priming: If operating temperatures do not exceed 180°F (85°C) TC Omniprime® is the primer of choice. TC 7000 Epoxy has been developed specifically for use with HT-MB when service temperatures are between 180°F and 250°F (85°C and 121°C). Either primer can be applied by brush or roller. Allow either primer to dry to touch before applying HT-MB.
  • Tape Application: Tapecoat HT-MB is applied by hand, with the Tapecoat Hand Wrapster #3, or by plant or over-the-ditch tape wrapping methods. Tapecoat HT-MB is applied by removing the release liner and spirally wrapped with minimum 50% overlap. Wrapping tension is to be maintained to obtain conformability of the tape to the surface being coated.
  • Note: Tapecoat 2025 Rockshield (Terrashield) is recommended in areas where rough backfill is expected.
