Premcote-R™ Tapes are designed for application by hand or machine to buried or submerged pipelines for the protection of welded joints on coated pipe, bends, fittings and more.
Premcote-R™ Tapes comprise a synthetic fabric reinforcement coated with rubber bitumen adhesive compound and backed with a conformable PVC film. Due to its great flexibility Premcote 150R™ is used for wrapping small to medium diameter pipes, welded joints, bends and fittings, whereas the thicker Premcote 1000R™ is used on larger diameter pipes. High temperature versions are also available (HT).
The extreme toughness is due to the combination of the heavy-duty PVC backing and the fabric reinforcement in the bituminous adhesive compound.
