Wencon Pipe Tape
Wencon Pipe Tape is a pre-impregnated fiberglass bandage with a knitted non-woven fiberglass structure, that gives the bandage maximum strength and facilitates repairs on corner joints, elbows and other shaped fittings.
The Wencon Pipe Tape is a fast curing pipe repair bandage especially formulated to make quick and effective repairs of cracks, leaks, fractures and corrosion porosity.
Typical applications are repairs in piping carrying water, oil, steam, most gases and even solvents. Wencon Pipe Tape has good pressure, temperature and chemical resistance.
Wencon Pipe Tape is available in 3 standard sizes:
- 5 cm x 150 cm (2x 60 inch.), designed for pipes up to 50 mm (2 inch) diameter
- 5 cm x 350 cm, (2x140 inch) designed for pipes up to 125 mm (5 inch) diameter
- 10 cm x 350 cm (4x140 inch) designed for pipes up to 200 mm (8 inch) diameter
The Wencon Pipe Repair Kit contains Wencon Putty, repair bandages, gloves and plastic bags.
A pre-impregnated fiberglass bandage for repair of cracks, leaks, fractures and corrosion porosity.
Prepare the surface by cleaning and abrading the area surrounding the damage.
Degreasing with Wencon Bio Cleaner will improve adhesion.
No mixing is required.
Wencon Pipe Tape is pre impregnated with polyurethane resin and is water activated.
3-6 minutes depending on air and water temperature.
ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES
Select the correct size Wencon Pipe Tape.

Stop the leakage with Wencon Putty if necessary.
Unpack the Wencon Pipe Tape and soak it in water for 10 seconds.
Wrap the Wencon Pipe Tape firmly around the pipe with 50% overlap. A minimum of 9 complete windings is recommendable.
Continue to smoothen the surface and to apply pressure to the bandage with a wet- ted glove, until it stops bobbling and starts to cure. This is important for closing the pores.
For larger diameters, use a second bandage to complete the repair. Wencon Pipe Tape requires no tools.
The bandage hardens in 10 minutes and is fully cured within 1 hour at 20°C (68°F)
No post curing machining necessary.
