WrapidBond™

A visco-elastic adhesive based system for pipeline corrosion protection

WrapidBond™ is a wraparound corrosion protective coating consisting of a modified and reinforced visco-elastic adhesive applied onto a polyethylene carrier film.

Supplied in roll form, WrapidBond™ provides effective corrosion protection by providing a barrier to water and oxygen. WrapidBond™ is for use on above ground and underground pipelines, and steel structures.

Adhesion & Creep Resistance

  • Specially formulated adhesive bonds to even the most difficult substrates and provides good elevated temperature creep resistance and resistance to soil stresses
  • Improved soil stress resistance is achieved with the installation of WrapidCoat™ PVC outer wrap

Wide Range of Applications

  • Diverse range of applications including: coating repair on new pipeline construction; transition areas from above to below ground pipelines; special sections such as bends, tees, flanges, etc.; rehabilitation of existing pipelines; tanks chimes, etc.

Full System Approach

  • Includes ultra flexible products, filler materials, weld bead and seam tapes, and Wrapid Coat™ PVC mechanical protection. Refer to the Wrapid Coat™ PVC product data sheet for more information

Field Friendly

  • Long shelf-life, with various widths available with convenient roll lengths for ease of inventory
  • Fast installation with excellent adhesion to steel and other base surfaces without applying primer
  • No drying or hardening time
  • Plastic-elastic properties allow self healing ability if damaged
