Water Leakage Tape is a game-changer for the maritime industry. Our tape is a specially developed resin-coated glass fiber cloth that can even be set underwater, making it an ideal solution for applications in the splash zone. Water Leakage Tape’s versatility extends beyond pipe repair. Whether it’s reinforcing weakened pipes, providing corrosion protection, or even offering electrical insulation up to 16,000 volts. Its resistance to temperatures up to 200°C and chemical corrosion make it a reliable solution for different maintenance and protection needs in the maritime industry.

To sum up:

How to use our tape?

Installing Water Leakage Tape onto your pipes is very easy:

  1. 1. Apply our Water Leakage tape very firmly around the (damaged) pipe, extending 2 inches beyond repair.
  2. 2. Continue to apply pressure on the tape by molding it in one direction until the tape begins to set.
  3. 3. If necessary, cut the excess tape with a knife or scissors. Clean tools with alcohol/acetone.

The fiberglass cloth tape is impregnated with a water-activated resin prior to packaging. Normal setting time is approximately 20 minutes, depending on the temperature. Its exceptional adhesion and resistance to harsh marine conditions ensure a secure and long-lasting seal, even under high pressures of up to 10 bar.
