CANUSA Wrapid Tape™ consists of a crosslinked polyolefin backing, coated with a protective, heat sensitive anticorrosion adhesive which effectively bonds to steel substrates and common pipeline coatings including polyethylene and fusion bonded epoxy. Upon the application of heat, Wrapid Tape™ shrinks down to fully encapsulate the protected substrate. The product is packaged in convenient rolls with various widths to protect and repair pipelines, fittings, bends, elbows and other irregular configurations.
Features & Benefits
Easy Installation: The flexibility provided by the thinner tape dimension allows Wrapid Tape™ to effectively protect both conventional substrates such as circular pipe as well as irregular transitions such as elbows and risers. Upon the application of heat, the specially formulated adhesive flows into all surface irregularities, forming a protective barrier against corrosion.
Saves Time & Money: Wrapid Tape™ is quick and easy to install. Since no special priming or operator equipment is required, product installation is quick and labor costs are kept to a minimum. Unlike conventional cold-applied tapes, Wrapid Tape™ does not require the use of high volatile primers, further minimizing costs and risks to health and safety.
Long Term Protection: Wrapid Tape™ is manufactured using materials that provide high electrical resistivity, low water absorption and low moisture permeability. The unique crosslinking process results in a protective backing that is much tougher than conventional tapes, more effectively resisting abrasion and damage, and thus extending the lifetime of the substrate. Wrapid Tape™ can also be double or triple wrapped for extra mechanical protection when required.
