SplashGard™

The SplashGard™ system is a dual-component specialized coating and structural reinforcement solution specifically designed for use in wet or submerged conditions. SplashGard™ consists of two components: SplashBond™ Adhesive and Splash Wrap, a fiberglass cloth impregnated with moisture cured urethane (MCU) resin. The innovative corrosion barrier system can be applied underwater and adheres easily to wet steel surfaces. It not only arrests corrosion and wave action, but also provides structural reinforcement, making it an ideal option for use on risers.

Installation

1. Surface Preparation

 

Remove all soft coatings and media blast the pipe to provide an anchor pattern (NACE 1 preferred). On dry surfaces, wipe the surface with a solvent such as Acetone, Toluene, or MEK. For structural repairs, mix and apply filler putty or paste to any defects.

 

2. Apply SplashBond 

Mix equal parts of the SplashBond™ Epoxy Primer until uniform. Apply the primer to the pipe surface as instructed. Allow the primer to sit until a “peanut butter” thickness is achieved.

 

3. Apply SplashWrap

Follow the wrapping instructions for Pipe Wrap™ or A+ Wrap™, as applicable for the repair.

 

4. Apply SplashBond Outer Coat 

Allow the material to cure. Then, mix and apply a coating of SplashBond™ as an outer coating.
