# 1 WAX TAPE BROWN 12” x 18' DOES NOT FIRM UP TRENTON 1WT12-18
Wax-Tape® #1 anticorrosion wrap is composed of a blend of microcrystalline waxes, plasticizers and corrosion inhibitors saturated into a non-woven, non-stitch bonded synthetic fabric. Wax-Tape #1 wrap also contain no siliceous mineral fillers.
Wax-Tape #1 wrap has outstanding waterproofing characteristics, is an excellent dielectric barrier, and is composed of essentially inert materials that will not deteriorate. It remains pliable over time, so it continues to protect the surface and will flex with movement of the protected structure. Further, it is resistant to chemicals and bacteria commonly found in soils. Wax-Tape #1 wrap contains no VOCs, is nonflammable, nontoxic and noncarcinogenic.
In summary, Wax-Tape #1 anticorrosion wrap is a time-proven coating for belowground metal structures that is versatile, easily applied to regular or irregular surfaces, and has outstanding anticorrosion properties.
Trenton Wax-Tape® Primer or Temcoat™ 3000 Primer is required prior to applying the Wax-Tape #1 wrap. It "wets" the surface, fills the metal pores, penetrates and inhibits existing rust and displaces moisture. Then Wax-Tape #1 wrap is wrapped and pressed onto the structure. It is an extremely conformable wrap and can be worked into the crevices and contours of irregular surfaces. Because it is self-sealing, it can be smoothed out so there is a continuous protective layer, with virtually no lap seams. It requires no drying or curing time, can be backfilled immediately and supports cathodic protection.
