Trenton Anticorrosion Materials

trenton wax tape productsSince 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.


Glas-Wrap is a white, resin coated, woven fiber- glass fabric.

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.

ECONOMICAL MECHANICAL PROTECTION FOR PIPELINE CORROSION COATINGS

Trenton PVC Outerwrap requires no specific surface preparation and can be applied in a wide variety of environmental conditions. It is simply spiral-wrapped, with an overlap, over the existing corrosion coating. No special tools required.

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.

Water or water vapor is present in most pipeline casings making possible galvanic corrosion of the carrier pipe. Also, a “water short” can occur through the water in the casing, allowing cathodic current to flow through the water and on to the pipe in the casing.

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 #2® is designed to be installed cold out of a 55 gallon drum for small quantity requirements. It remains in a firm gel consistency at ground temperatures commonly found in normal pipeline operations.

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.

Pre-Con™ is a liquid casing water conditioner for pipeline casings. It consists of "wetting" and filming agents, vapor phase inhibitors, alkaline media additives and antibacterial conditioners.
