Wax-tape coating for high temperature pipeline corrosion protection
Trenton Corporation, the manufacturer of corrosion prevention systems, is introducing Trenton wax tape HT 3000, a new wax-tape coating that offers corrosion protection of metal pipe and irregularly shaped fixtures in higher temperature applications.
Trenton HT-3000 Wax-Tape is an easy-to-apply corrosion protection system and the newest line extension of the Trenton Wax-Tape systems, which have three decades of field performance. It would typically be applied in combination with Trenton Temcoat 3000 Primer. It can be used in diverse field conditions, whether pipe, valves, or fittings, and whether a bare or coated surface. The product offers the conveniences and usefulness of Trenton’s traditional tapes with the ability to withstand much higher temperatures.
The wax-type coating is ideal for applications like oil and gas production piping, gas pipeline, compressor station discharge piping, refining, and petrochemical process piping, beneath thermal insulation on piping and locations with high temperatures greater than 110 degrees F, though less than 230 F.
The product is non-toxic, easy to apply with minimal surface preparation. It can be applied in high moisture conditions and at in-service temperatures using insulated gloves. There is no cure time; simply backfill after application. It can be used on aboveground or belowground pipe systems and is UV resistant.
In conditions where the pipe is exposed or requires mechanical protection, applying Trenton’s MC Outerwrap on top of the HT-3000 provides extra strength and fast curing. The moisture-cured wrap starts curing when exposed to humidity and creates a durable coating.
