Description

Versil-Pak is a flexible, greaseproof and waterproof barrier wrap, designed for protecting underground piping in a corrosive environment. It functions as a complete barrier against high moisture, acidic environment, galvanic or bacterial attacks that results in pipeline corrosion. It is also capable of locking out soil, dust, grease and contaminants.

Made with a carefully selected fabric incorporated with a high adhesion adhesive wax and high barrier plastic film, this results in the Versil-Pak to posses excellent dead-fold, good moldability, high tensile and dielectric strength. It can also be applied to any industrial surface, including hard-to-reach joints, threads, welds, straps, yokes and valves.

It is best used as a tight wrap around pumps, underground piping, irregular shapes on the oil field machinery, large electric motors or wherever buried equipment requires dielectric and robust protection. It is, however, especially suited for hand wrap applications in the field.

Two versions of the Versil-Pak wrap that meet the requirements of military specification MIL-B-121 include:
Versil-Pak #5-1 Mil B-121, Type 1, Grade C, Class I.
Polyester high strength fabric core provides high-strength and carrier of the protective wax. High adhesion wax assures excellent barrier properties.
Versil-Pak #5-2: Mil B-121, Type 1, Grade C, Class 2.
Polyester high strength fabric core provides high-strength and carrier of the protective wax. Two-sided high adhesion wax assures excellent barrier properties.

Key Features

Applications

suited for hand wrap applications in the field. It can be used in:

  • Protects industrial plant piping where corrosive action is prevalent or where conditions are severe, such as airlines, sprinkling system piping, cold water pipe, gas pipe, and other metal tubes.
  • Use as a tight wrap on underground piping, pumps and irregular shapes on oil field machinery, large electric motors, or buried equipment needing a strong barrier and dielectric protection.

Product Features

  • Conforms to odd shapes and sizes.
  • A barrier to contaminants even in most demanding conditions
  • Polyester provides superior strength
  • Locks out soil, grease, dust and contaminants
  • Provides corrosion, abrasion and impact protection
  • Two-sided adhesion wax provides a tight overlap seal
  • Less bulky and more efficient coverage than other petroleum wraps
