If you're looking for a tape to seal a small hair line crack or leaks around the thread, this post probably isn't what you're looking for.
If you're looking for a more robust pipe repair tape capable of handling higher pressures and providing a permanent fix, read on.
In this post, we introduce our Weicon Pipe Repair Kits. These kits contain two parts; a steel-filled epoxy putty to fill holes and spread over the leaking area and a impregnated tape that goes on like an overwrap bandage before setting hard. Together, they provide a permanent, high pressure resistant solution for fixing all kinds of metal and plastic pipes.
The section below provide more information on how to use these products to fix a pipe. We also cover a few of their main specifications.
What's In A Pipe Repair Kit.
Each pipe repair kit is supplied with the following:
- 1 x Steel Repair Stick.
- 1 x Resin Impregnated Fibreglass Tape (3 Sizes Available).
- A pair of gloves and assembly instructions.
You won’t need any additional tools to fix pipes with this kit. The Repair Stick can be mixed by hand. All you’ll need is something to roughen the surface if possible and water to activate the tape.
What Kinds of Pipes Can They Be Used On?
These leak fixing kits are compatible with.
- Stainless Steel.
- Most other Plastics.
As an added benefit, they can be used on dry or wet areas and even applied underwater.
