PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion System

The PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion System has been developed for long term corrosion protection of metal surfaces underground, underwater, or exposed – even in the most severe environments. It consists of a cold applied system of petrolatum based PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape, PetroWrap Primer, and, where contouring is necessary, PetroWrap Mastic. PetroWrap ensures easy site application without heating, even in the coldest temperatures, and can be applied on damp and indifferently prepared surfaces.

PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion System Application Instructions

  1. Remove all contaminants such as dirt, oil, scale and excessive moisture.
  2. Brush PetroWrap Primer A evenly over surface to displace remaining moisture and ensure proper adhesion.
  3. Press PetroWrap Mastic B into surface irregularities to eliminate air pockets.
  4. Wrap PetroWrap Tape C spirally around prepared surface using even tension. An overlap of 55% is recommended to assure total protection.
  5. Finish with PetroWrap Overwrap D applied like PetroWrap Tape to prevent mechanical damage as required.

PetroWrap Primer Paste

PetroWrap Primer Paste is a petrolatum based primer for application on metal surfaces prior to wrapping with PetroWrap Anti Corrosion Tape. It is a preparatory primer that displaces moisture, pacifies
oxides, and fills small irregularities that occur on the surface to be wrapped with PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape. PetroWrap Primer Paste is chemical resistant, impervious to water and will not crack,
dry, or harden. PetroWrap Primer Paste can be applied with either a brush or gloved hand.

PetroWrap Primer Paste
Surface Preparation and Application

Remove loose dirt and contaminants using a wire brush. Eliminate all sharp edges and welding splatter. PetroWrap Primer can be brushed or ragged on with a thin, uniform coat. Utilize heavier application on pitted areas, bolt heads, or any other contoured or sharp surface.
Covers 2 – 5 sq. meters per kilogram.

PetroWrap Primer Paste acts as a bonding agent by displacing excess moisture on metal surfaces prior to wrapping with PetroWrap Anti Corrosion Tape. PetroWrap Primer can be applied in wet environments on new or corroded surfaces. It is not recommended where exposure to strong solvents is likely.

Withstands temperatures 23°F(-5°C) to 113°F(45°C)
Two kilogram tubs are packaged six to a carton.

PetroWrap Mastic

PetroWrap Mastic is a cold applied filler which profiles areas by easing contours on pipe joints, flanges, bolts, and other irregular shapes to be wrapped with PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape. PetroWrap
Mastic consists of saturated neutral petrolatum based compounds, inert fillers, and reinforcing compounds and will not harden even in the most severe climactic conditions.

PetroWrap Mastic is a component of the PetroWrap Anti Corrosion System and is used to fill irregularities on metal surfaces prior to wrapping with PetroWrap Anti Corrosion Tape. Flanges, bolts, mechanical
joints, valves, and connections are some areas where this product can be used. Filling voids prevents air pockets and therefore inhibits rust. Surface should be primed with PetroWrap Primer before Mastic is

PetroWrap Mastic is not recommended where exposure to strong solvents is likely.
Withstands temperatures 23°F(-5°C) to 113°F(45°C)
Three kilogram blocks are packaged eight to a carton.

PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape

PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape consists of a non-woven, stitch bonded, synthetic fabric which has been fully impregnated with neutral petrolatum based compounds and inert fillers. PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape will not crack, peel, or harden and therefore remains impermeable to moisture and requires no maintenance.


PetroWrap Anti-Corrosion Tape is a non woven stitch bonded synthetic fabric, which is fully impregnated and coated with neutral petrolatum based compounds and inert fillers. Petrolatum based PetroWrap Anti Corrosion Tape is chemically inert and does not polymerize or oxidize and therefore retains its water resistance and dielectric properties over an extended period. It is free of chemical impurities.


All surfaces should be evenly coated with PetroWrap Primer prior to application of PetroWrap Tape.


Pipes wrapped with PetroWrap may be overwrapped with PetroWrap OverWrap tape, a self adhesive PVC tape, for extra protection.


A 55% overlap is recommended, however, a minimum overlap of 15mm may be used on pipes of diameter less than 150mm and a 25mm lap may be used on larger diameter pipes.


PetroWrap Tape exhibits a very high degree of impermeability to water and is unaffected by vibration. It is highly resistant to mineral acids , alkalis, and salts.
