Description

MaxPipe 200 Epoxy Resin

MaxPipe 200 Pipe repair Epoxy Resin, is a two pack, thixotropic epoxy material for use in conjunction with a range of tapes and fabrics to produce high strength composite repairs.

The mixed resin can be applied to manually prepared surfaces to create a GRP reinforcment layer around the entire circumference of leaking pipe surfaces.

By incorporating layersof high strength woven glass fibre the pipe repair system is proven to give 10 years + protection to damaged, leaking or porous pipe surfaces

Once cured the material offers:

  • Long-term pipe protection
  • Reduced down time

  • Allow for curing
Surface Preparation:

Where possible all surfaces must be abrasive blast cleaned to ISO 8501/4 Standard SA2.5 (SSPC SP10/ NACE 2) and with a minimum blast profile of 75 microns using an angular abrasive. However this product is tolerant of less than ideal surface preparation and will adhere to surfaces prepared using Hand tools, Mechanical Tools and Hydro-blasting.

Where there is corrosion pitting, this should be rebuilt using MaxMet 800 Epoxy fairing compound which can also be used to enhance adhesion onto poorly prepared surfaces.

Mixing

Warm the Base component to 15-25°C before mixing and do not apply when the ambient or substrate temperature is below 5°C or less  than 3°C above the dew point.   

Mixing of the product can be on full units or by part-mixing. If mixing the whole unit, pour the contents of the Activator unit into the Base container ensuring that as much material is drained from the Activator container as possible.

Mix the two components together until they are streak-free using a spatula and apply using a short bristled brush or applicator tool. From the commencement of mixing, all of the material must be used within 25 minutes at 20°C . For small quantities us a mixing ratio of: 

2:1 By volume or 2:1 by weight     
 
Application Base Coat

The mixed product can be used in conjunction with glass tape, glass cloth, chop-strand matting and linen scrim. The use of a technical fabric is dependent on the type of repair to be performed. Typically the following repairs are performed with these materials.

 3 layer pipewrapping


1. Apply 301 Epoxy Resin and Hardener at 1mm (40mil) WFT Wrap 50/100mm glass tape around pipe with a 50% overlap
2. Apply 301 Epoxy Resin and Hardener at 500 microns (20mil) WFT Wrap 50/100mm glass tape around pipe with a 50% overlap
3. Repeat step 2, and finish with a 500 microns (20mil) coat of 301 Epoxy Resin.

3 layer pipe T-joint

1. Apply 301 Epoxy Resin and Hardener at 1mm (40mil) WFT. Cut the glass tape in to strips and lay over the surface where the 2 pipes meet, Ensure there are at least 3 layers of MaxPipe 200 and Glass tape around the join area
2. Once all the t-Joint area has been coated apply MaxPipe 200 Epoxy Resin at 1mm WFT to all the repair area wrap 50/100mm glass tape around pipe with a 50% overlap.
3. Repeat step 2, and finish with a 500 microns (20mil) coat of MaxPrime 200 Epoxy Resin.

Leaking tank seams


1. Apply 301 Epoxy Resin and Hardener at 1mm (40mil) WFT, ensure the repair area is oversized by 200mm (8”) in all directions
2. Cut a section of glass fibre matting to cover the leaking seam
3. Apply MaxPipe 200 Epoxy Resin and Hardener at 1mm onto the glass fibre matting.
4. Apply a 2nd layer of glass fibre matting.
5. Seal the repair with a final coat of MaxPipe 200 Epoxy Resin at 500 microns (20mil)

Coverage

300gm of fully mixed product will give the following coverage rates –0.50m² at 500 microns, 0.25m² at 1mm

Please note that the coverage rates quoted are theoretical and do not take into consideration the profile or condition of the surface
being repaired.

Usable life at  20°C 

20-25 minutes

Over-Coating Times 

Minimum – the applied material can be over-coated as soon as it is touch dry. 

Maximum – over-coating time 8 hours.

Where the maximum over-coating time is exceeded, the material should be allowed to harden before being abraded or flash blasted to  remove any surface contamination

Cure Times @ 20°CMovement without load

MAXCERAM 500 is designed for elevated temperature service in all situations requires post cure.
After an initial cure period of at least 24 hours at 20°C it should be post cured at between 60°C for 24 hours and 100°C for 2 hours.

As an alternative and where service temperature will rise gradually the material can be post cured in service after an initial cure period of at least 24 hours at 20°C
