TC Color Coat by Tapecoat

The Multi-Environmental All Purpose Wax Coating System


Color Coat is a versatile 60 mil environmentally friendly wax coating system designed to protect piping and metal structures from damage and deterioration caused by corrosion. The specially formulated odorless, selfhardening, wax coating system is suited for both above and below grade application.

Color Coat is a highly conformable coating that can be applied over most stable surfaces whether they are dry, damp or wet. A coating ideal for protecting structures such as bridge crossings, riser pipe, flanges, valves and all types of piping and metal structures. Especially suited for vaults and close quarter applications because it is virtually odorless, fume free and non toxic

Resistant to Ultra Violet Light and environmental exposure, Color Coat is durable and aesthetically pleasing, available in a wide variety of colors including a full range of Safety Code colors.


Primer: Apply TC COLOR COAT PRIMER by hand (glove) or mechanical means, to a minimum thickness of 2 to 4 mils.

Tape: Apply Color Coat Wrap using either the spiral or cigarette method. A 50% overlap is preferred, though a minimum overlap 1” or 20 per cent of the tape width, which ever is greater is acceptable when conditions allow. Hand smooth and seal overlaps.


Surface Preparation

Surface should be clean. Remove all loose or non-bonded material, rust scale, dirt, burrs, and sharp edges. Remove excess moisture whenever practical.
