The Canusa Wrapid Sleeve™ is a one-piece wraparound sleeve designed for corrosion protection of buried and exposed steel pipelines. Wrapid Sleeve™ consists of a crosslinked polyolefin backing, coated with a protective heat sensitive adhesive which effectively bonds to steel substrates and common pipeline coatings including polyethylene and fusion bonded epoxy.
Features & Benefits
Rapid & Reliable Installation: Wrapid Sleeve™ has a patented one-piece construction that incorporates a pre- attached closure strip as part of the sleeve. Because the closure has been factory applied, quick and reliable field installation is easy to accomplish. Wrapid Sleeve™ is also available with a broad range of adhesives to accommodate various operating temperatures and soil stress conditions. To further optimize installation, Wrapid Sleeve™ products are available with a yellow polyethylene backing that incorporatesa thermochromic indicator. These sleeves can be supplied with either a yellow or a patented opaque Windoweld™ closure.
Long-Term Corrosion Protection: Wrapid Sleeve™ provides excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment resulting in effective long term corrosion protection. The high-performance crosslinked backing, in combination with a broad range of adhesives, can be engineered for regular or high stress environments. Once installed, Wrapid Sleeve™ provides the structural integrity of a seamless tube, and provides the substrate with durable protection against abrasion and chemical attack.
Saves Time & Money: With Wrapid Sleeve’s™ unique construction, less time is required handling, positioning and installing separate closures. With the application of heat, this feature allows for fast, simple and complete installation of the sleeve. No additional costly primers are required. This minimizes installation time and labor costs while promoting high production rates. Wrapid Sleeve™ is also available in a high shrink ratio for high profile joint protection.
