Wax-Tape® #1 wrap is composed of a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers and corrosion inhibitors saturated into a non-woven, non-stitch bonded synthetic fabric, forming a tape wrapper. They also contain no siliceous mineral fillers.


For application on belowground metal surfaces, pipe or fittings to prevent corrosion.


Wire brush and scrape the surface clean of dirt, loose coating and loose rust. Apply a thin film of Wax-Tape® Primer. If the surface is wet, cold or rusty, rub and press on primer to displace moisture and ensure adhesion. Then wrap Wax-Tape® #1 wrap using a 1″ overlap. On straight pipe apply slight tension to ensure contact with surface. On irregular surfaces allow slack so the wrap can be molded into conformity. In either case, press and form the wrap so there are no air pockets or voids under the wrap. Also, press and smooth out the lap seams to ensure they are sealed. The wrap does not require curing or drying time so it can be backfilled immediately. For belowground pipes that are 10” or larger, apply a Trenton outerwrap. For aggressive soil conditions a Trenton outerwrap, a rock shield or select backfill should be considered.
