WPCT-Field Joint Coating for T&D MOT40°C (104°F)

WPCT-Field Joint Coating for T&D MOT40°C (104°F)
Backing Binder: PE
Total Thickness: See Data Sheet
Category: Heat Shrinkable Pipeline Coatings
WPCT is a two-layer field-joint coating system designed for corrosion protection of pipelines operating at 40°C.

Applications:

  • WPCT is a wraparound heat-shrinkable, ready-to-fit assembly for the corrosion protection of field girth weld joints in distribution and transmission systems.
  • WPCT is compatible with standard pipe coatings.
  • WPCT can be used for coating bare, replacement pipe sections and large radius bends. 
  • WPCT is designed to be applied with minimum preheating and is ideal for large diameter water pipe.

Features & Benefits:

Low preheat sensitivity & proven functionality High impact and penetration resistance
Installation friendly in combination with high functional performance Tough, but flexible even at low temperatures
Available as all-in-one unit or roll form No special equipment or skills required
Saves money by keeping inventory and logistics costs low Makes installation fast and easy, keeps installation costs low
Dimpled backing provides a 'permanent change' indicator for application of heat Sealing adhesive automatically flows and repairs minor mechanical damages
Ensures correct application heat & allows easy post-heat inspection. Reliable inspectability at any time Self-healing effect. Saves extra intervention steps

Max Temperature: 40 ºC, 104 ºF
