Trenton MCO™ 110 outerwrap is used aboveground or belowground as a mechanical protective wrap over Trenton Wax-Tape® anticorrosion wraps.
Trenton MCO™ 110 outerwrap is a specialized blend of quick-curing resins impregnated into a fiberglass fabric. It provides protection for coatings that need additional mechanical strength. MCO™ 110 outerwrap is applied by hand, with no special application tools needed. The MCO™ 110 outerwrap package includes gloves and Trenton MCO™ outerwrap end adhesive.
If the wrap’s color fades due to UV exposure, MCO™ 110 can be painted. In especially challenging frost heave conditions, the area above and below the frost line can be wrapped three times for extra strength.
- Quick and easy to apply, with minimal equipment requirements
- Adds excellent field-applied mechanical protection to coatings that excel in anticorrosion protection, such as Trenton Wax-Tape® anticorrosion wraps
- Superior protection against soil stress and backfill
- Can be applied in high-moisture conditions (because the resin is moisture-cured)
- Provides a “hard-shell” coating that protects and can also be painted
- High solids content with low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Low odor
- Quick cure time so it is ready for immediate backfill after application
- Apply any of Trenton’s Wax-Tape® anticorrosion wraps (or another coating that needs extra mechanical protection).
- On horizontal pipe, start with a downward-facing strip and wrap Trenton MCO™110 outerwrap onto the pipe in a spiral pattern, using a minimum 50% overlap. Use an 80% overlap when needed in high stress areas, such as transition pipe in clay soils. On a vertical pipe, start at the bottom and spiral up. When wrapping, apply only enough tension to prevent slack. The wrap can be repositioned to achieve a proper application.
- Make sure MCO™ 110 outerwrap is extended out past the underlying coating on both ends for better anchoring.
- When a roll ends, overlap the new roll over the previous roll with the beginning edge in a downward-facing direction. Wrap the outerwrap once around the pipe to anchor the new roll before resuming the spiral wrap.
- At the end of the last roll, apply MCO™ outerwrap end adhesive to the existing layer before pressing down the end, in order to prevent possible unraveling before the outerwrap has cured.
Rolls are individually vacuum-packed in foil bags.
