Suitable for Repairing Pipe Leaks on:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
- Fix Leaking Copper Pipes
- Seal Burst Water Pipes
- Emergency Pipe leak repairs
- Cast Iron Pipe Repairs
- Water Leak Repairs
- Ideally all pressure should be removed from the pipe before the repair commences.
Steel & Cast-Iron Pipes
- For leaks where pressure cannot be removed, holes should first be plugged using M-METAL 300 – Metal Epoxy Putty Stick – Rapid Cure or sealed with M-PIPE 400 – Self Fusing Silicone Pipe Repair Tape.
- Once the flow of water has stopped, degrease the area to remove any oils and surface contamination.
- Using an angle grinder or wire brush, remove any rust or loose paint that may be present.
Copper, Stainless and Plastic Pipes
- Copper or stainless-steel pipes should be roughened with a course file, rasp or saw blade.
- For plastic pipes abrade surfaces with coarse grit emery cloth. A saw blade may also be used to create a crosshatch pattern. This is particularly useful on polypropylene and PVDF piping.
- Before and during application, lightweight disposable gloves should be worn to protect the hands.
- M-PIPE 100 Emergency Pipe Repair Tape is a single component material, which should be fully immersed in clean water and squeezed two or three times to activate the resin for about five seconds prior to use.
- Remove the MAXPIPE 100 – Water Activated Pipe Wrap roll from water start the repair by centring the tape over the hole and wrap from bottom, pulling firmly throughout application.
- After 5-7 wraps, resin foam will come through the tape, which is desirable and aided by pulling tightly. Continue until entire roll is applied, building to a minimum thickness of 12mm (½”), use a second roll if necessary.
- Firmly press and smooth the end of roll into wrap in the direction of application. Wet gloves in water, smooth and firmly press the wet resin back into the wrap.
- When M-PIPE 100 is used in conjunction with an ‘Epoxy plug’ of M-METAL 300 – Metal Epoxy Putty Stick – Rapid Cure, please follow the mixing instruction for M-METAL 300 – Cut a piece of putty stick and knead in a gloved hand and flatten out into a disc centrally over the hole pressing gently and feathering the edges.
- Leave to semi-harden (full cure 20 minutes) before applying the tape, although the tape may be applied immediately if necessary.
KEEP HANDS MOVING QUICKLY AND WET GLOVES FREQUENTLY TO AVOID STICKING
- Continue rapid hand movement pressing and polishing resin in motions around and parallel to the pipe. Continue process until resins are no longer tacky.
NOTE: If a thicker application is needed, spend a little less time finishing the first roll and immediately begin the application of the next. Finish the finial roll as if a single roll application.
Pipe Repair Size Guide
- 50mm x 1.8mtrs = 15 – 50mm pipes
- 50mm x 3.6mtrs = 50 – 75mm pipes
- 75mm x 3.6mtrs = 75 – 100mm pipes
- 100mm x 3.6mtrs = 100 – 125mm pipes
For larger pipes more than one bandage will be required.
