Composite Pipe Repair Wrap:
Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System Stage 4

A composite pipe repair wrap provides a final, rock-hard, impact resistant layer of protection to pipework. It reinforces previous stages of repair, refurbishes older or worn pipes, and strengthens and extends the lifespan of systems.

The composite layer will usually be provided by a SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage. SylWrap features a water-activated resin which cures within minutes. To apply SylWrap, the user simply dips the bandage in water and wraps it around the pipework.

SylWrap HD is for general pipe reinforcement and increasing hoop strength. It has WRAS approval, meaning is is certified to British standards as safe to use on pipes carrying drinking water.

SylWrap CR has additional corrosion inhibitors for protecting pipes and structures in harsh environments from environmental and marine corrosion. SylWrap FR is a flame retardant version for increasing the temperature resistance of pipework subjected to extreme heat.

For more complicated repairs where a pipe repair wrap cannot be applied such as around complex pipe fittings or tanks, then a Sylmasta Epoxy Composite Repair is instead made using Sylmasta E190 Epoxy Composite and Fibreglass Tape.

This involves coating strips of Fibreglass Tape with Epoxy, in effect creating a composite repair bandage which can be applied in layers as a patch repair rather than via wrapping. An Epoxy Composite allows for multiple areas of the same pipe to be repaired at once, and offers much greater control over the repair and curing process.

In applications where very high chemical or temperature resistance is required, Sylmasta can formulate and supply specialist epoxy resin in place of E190. For more information, please contact Sylmasta.

SylWrap HD Pipe Repair Bandage

SylWrap HD is a WRAS approved pipe repair bandage for reinforcing repairs and strengthening pipes of all materials. It increases pressure resistance, chemical resistance and hoop strength.

Number of Repairs: One Per Bandage
Work Time: 2 – 5 minutes
Temperature Resistance: Up to 250°C
Pressure Resistance: Up to 30bar

SylWrap CR is a composite repair wrap infused with corrosion inhibitors for protection from and prevention against corrosion

SylWrap CR Corrosion Protection Wrap

SylWrap CR is a pipe repair bandage infused with corrosion inhibitors to further protect pipes in harsh, aggressive environments including marine and underwater against substrate corrosion.

Number of Repairs: One Per Bandage
Work Time: 2 – 5 minutes
Temperature Resistance: Up to 250°C
Pressure Resistance: Up to 30bar

Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin

E190 is an epoxy resin coated onto surfaces and layered with Fibreglass Tape, building a composite repair. It is used when a repair wrap cannot be effectively applied, such as to complex pipes or tanks, and can be specially formulated for specific applications.

Number of Repairs: Multiple
Work Time: 30 minutes
Specialist resins can be formulated for temperature, chemical resistance, etc

Fibreglass Tape

Fibreglass Tape is used alongside E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin to build composite patch repairs to complex pipes and tanks. Strips are cut off and layered and coated with resin, causing the Fibreglass Tape to cure to a rock hard, protective material.

Number of Repairs: Multiple
Work Time: 30 minutes when coated with resin

Epoxy Composite Repair Kit

The Epoxy Composite Repair Kit combines all the products and accessories needed to make numerous composite patch repairs to pipe and tanks. Each Kit contains 3 x E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin, 1 x 100mm x 50m Fibreglass Tape, brushes, stirrers, gloves and mixing cups.

Number of Repairs: Multiple
