Wrap & Seal Pipe Burst Tape is a waterproof pipe repair tape made from self-fusing silicone which seals live leaks on pipes made from copper, PVC plastic, steel, malleable iron, and many other materials.
The tape stretches by three times its length and once applied, it fuses to form a solid rubber band which exerts maximum pressure over the hole or crack in the pipe. Using multiple tapes can create a repair which is pressure resistant up to 30bar and Wrap & Seal is temperature resistant up to 200°C.
Wrap & Seal is suitable for fixing leaks in applications ranging from small domestic plumbing problems through to large scale industrial pipe repairs. Because it is effective on live leaks, using Wrap & Seal avoids costly and disruptive shutdowns of systems.
The versatility of the product makes it suitable for wrapping car exhausts, hoses and other types of pipes. Wrap & Seal is WRAS approved, meaning that it can be used safely with drinking water.
Wrap & Seal Pipe Burst Tape details – how to repair a leaking pipe with waterproof tape
Wrap & Seal is easy to use and depending on the size and pressure of the pipe, repairs can be carried out in under 15 minutes by simply following the instructions provided.
The repair begins by anchoring the waterproof tape next to the leak area. Using the centre line as a guide, you stretch the tape to its maximum and wrap it around the pipe until it runs out. The unique tapered profile of Wrap & Seal stops water from tracking underneath the tape, completely sealing the leak.
One Wrap & Seal Tape will typically hold 5bar pressure. Further pressure resistance can be built up by using additional tapes. If you are undertaking a high pressure repair, then please use our Wrap & Seal calculator which can calculate the number of tapes needed.
Repairs made with Wrap & Seal should be reinforced by applying a SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage over the Pipe Burst Tape. The Bandage offers a rock hard, impact resistant layer of protection which turns the repair permanent.
Both Wrap & Seal and SylWrap Bandages are available in our Universal Pipe Repair Kit which contains all the equipment needed for fixing live leaks in an emergency. For a kit that allows for multiple pipe repairs to be carried out, then please see our Contractor Case.
