Heat Shrinkable Tape/Hot applied tape
I System description:
It is a hand wrapped heat shrinkable tape designed for corrosion protection of straight pipes, fittings, bends, elbows and other irregular configurations.. When heated the backing layer shrinks and the adhesive flows and forms a reliable corrosion protection seal onto metal and adjacent coating surfaces.
The Heat Shrinkable Tape no needs patch closure and reduces application time and labour costs.
The specification of the tape consists of three layers,
Adhesive: butyl rubber based hot melt adhesive
Film backing: polyethylene
Interleaf: Antiadhesive Film Treated with Silicone
After heating, formed corrosion protection seal
Strong backing provides outstanding waterproofing effect
High chemical resistance. resists impact, abrasion and ultraviolet light.
Excellent resistance against cathodic disbondment, dielectric breakdown.

No Special skills, equipments nor patch closure are needed. Its superior flexibility provides easy and reliable application for irregular configurations of fittings, bends and elbows and small diameter of straight pipes.
Wrap spirally the tape over foreign matters-free and preheated surface, beginning at least 25~50mm (1~2 ) onto pipe coating. Wrap the tape with enough tension to obtain conformability and with minimum 50% of overlapping, while removing the release liner. Warm the end part of the tape and press down firmly. Using a torch, start at the edge of the tape and heat circumferentially around the coated pipe.
Finish off by heating over the entire tape vertically to ensure a uniform adhesion and by using a roller or gloved hands to remove wrinkle and air.
