Trenton Anticorrosion Materials
Since 1949 the Trenton Corporation has provided excellent anticorrosion coating systems for a variety of environments. A complete protection system, the Trenton Wax Tape System includes a selection of primers, tapes and outerwraps that work together to protect your resources. See our full line of Trenton wax tape products below.
Trenton HT-3000 Wax-Tape® is a specially formulated wax-based tape used for corrosion protection of metal pipe and fixtures experiencing higher than normal temperatures. When used in combination with Trenton Temcoat™ 3000 primer, this easy-to-apply tape delivers highly effective and durable corrosion protection to bare or coated surfaces in a wide range of field conditions.
#2 Wax-Tape® is a nonwoven, nonstitch bonded synthetic fabric, saturated with a blend of microcrystalline wax, solvents and corrosion inhibitors (no clay fillers), forming a tape wrapper that firms up and is suitable for painting.
#1 Wax-Tape is composed of a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers and corrosion inhibitors saturated into a non-woven, non-stitch bonded synthetic fabric, forming a tape wrapper. They also contain no siliceous mineral fillers.
Temcoat™/Temcoat™ 3000 is a high-temperature microcrystalline wax-based coating compound that will not melt and can be applied at ambient temperatures up to 230°F They do not require a primer or curing time and are easily applied by hand. Temcoat 3000 is designed to maintain spreadability at lower temperatures.
Trenton Fill-Pro PM-GP™ Profiling Mastic is a specially formulated, moldable mastic for use with Trenton Wax-Tapes® and Wax-Tape Primers. FillPro PM-GP incorporates a blend of petrolatum and polymer-based components to form a cold-applied, self-adhesive and self-supporting mastic. FillPro PM-GP is compatible with all Trenton tapes and primers.
Innercoat® is a blend of microcrystalline waxes designed to provide the most desirable corrosion resistance, adhesion and wetting characteristics. It is hot-applied directly to the pipe surface and is always over-wrapped with a proper Trenton wrapper depending on the type of application.
Guard-Wrap™ consists of a spunbonded polyester mat, saturated with microcrystalline wax that is laminated to a polyester film which is coated with microcrystalline wax. Its conformability makes it ideal for wrapping fittings. It also works well on straight pipe.
MC Outerwrap™ is a specialized blend of quick curing resins impregnated into a fiberglass fabric. It provides soil stress and backfill protection to coatings that need additional mechanical strength. MC Outerwrap is specifically designed as a “hard shell” outerwrap over the Wax-Tapes.
Poly-Ply™ plastic wrapper consists of three membranes of .5-mil clear, 50 gauge, clear, polyvinylidene chloride plastic, high-cling membranes, wound together as a single sheet. It provides a mechanical and electrical barrier over Temcoat™ or #1 Wax-Tape® while remaining flexible enough to conform to irregular shaped surfaces. It is inert and will not deteriorate, and is resistant to chemicals and bacteria commonly found in soil.
Fill-Coat #6® is a cold-installed/high temperature petroleum based casing filler compound that can be installed at ambient temperature as low as 50°F (10°C) with portable pumps. The product is used in bridge abutment casings, and it can be used in casings with elevated temperatures.
Fill-Coat #1® is a low melt point, hot-installed petrolatum compound that sets up relatively firm at ground temperatures commonly found in normal pipeline operations. It has good “wetting” and adhesion characteristics and prevents possible corrosion of pipe in casings.
