Repairing A Pitted and Corroded Pipeline With TFT Products

If you are in need of a permanent repair to a corroded and pitted commercial pipeline of any size, TFT offers a pipe wrap product that can make the repair on any material in nearly any environment and/or weather condition.  Once you have received the product that fits your needs, or we have developed a custom product for your company, it's time to prep the pipe for repair.  We recommend using a buffing wheel, it cut through the corrosion and more easily provides and better surface than a wire wheel and it much safer to use

TFT Pipe Wraps include a two part resin that must be throughly mixed to start the curing process.  Be Quick, Many of TFT's pipe wraps are engineered to be fully cured and ready for use in minutes.

TFT products, like most pipe wrap materials, are made of a two part resin that is mixed and typically spread onto fiberglass cloth wide enough for the repair and long enough for a minimum of three full wraps.  One of the best features of TFT products is that many are engineered to cure in minutes, allowing you to use the pipeline again right away and saving your company the tremendous costs of downtime.  If it is a 1 to 1 mix, place equal parts side by side, quickly and thoroughly combining the two, to start the curing process.  You will find all of the tools required in our all in one kits, including safety glasses.  One other feature of our pipe wraps is the quantities we sell them in.  Many companies will sell the resin in large drums often leading to waste. You can purchase pints or gallon sizes good for a single or a few repairs.  In fact, TFT prides itself on the customization and unique packaging needs of their many varied customers from several industries.

Spread the throughly mixed resin onto the fiberglass cloth and then onto the pitted area.  Then roll the cloth onto the pipe with a rolling stick provided in your kit.  Keep tension on the cloth, squeezing the resin through the pore and fully saturating the material though each wrap (min. of 3 wraps)

When wrapping, make sure that you are using all of the safety items in provided your kit, including gloves and safety glasses and follow all of your company safety policies regarding the uses of volatile substances.  The most efficient way to wrap is with another installer on either side of the pipe.  some pipes are so large that they will require two or more installers.  If your pipe has such large pits that you have lost the contour of the pipe, wrap a solid section of the pipe with the blue film provided and form a patch matching the diameter and shape of the pipe with your wrap material.  Use the cures and hardened patch to cover the large pit.  Then prepare another batch to wrap the pipe and pit.  TFT pipe wraps are so strong and durable that you are essentially "rebuilding the pipe."  Quick, easy, affordable and long-lasting!

Cover the new repair with the blue film provided in your pipe repair kit.  Wait for the repair to be fully cured and remove.  Now your pipe is repaired and ready for use.
