Installation

1. Position and Secure Compression Seal 

Seal and clamp leak. Mark the repair zone and abrade the surface using the emery strip. Solvent wipe the repair area.

 

2. Apply Load Transfer Putty to Clams

Knead the epoxy putty until uniform, then apply to the clamp – eliminate sharp edges and form a transition area for composite application.

 

3. Apply Epoxy Primer 

Mix and apply a 30 mil coating of epoxy primer. Allow the paste to thicken for 10-15 minutes – a “peanut butter” consistency is desired.

 

4. Apply Pipe Wrap® 

Apply provided Pipe Wrap® using the cigar wrap method. A topcoat may be applied after two hours.
