The Pipe Sock™ system is a fiber-reinforced polymer designed to eliminate crevice corrosion problems caused by direct metal-to-metal contact. It consists of a pre-formed, size specific fiberglass wear pad and a specially formulated adhesive system that combines to form a resilient crevice corrosion solution. Additionally, it can withstand temperatures up to 250° F and provide complete fit-up integrity with the pipe, eliminating moisture penetration and condensation cavities.

Installation Procedure

  1. Lift the corroded pipe off support or stanchion.
  2. Surface Inspection and Preparation. Brush contact surface with a wire brush and lightly abrade with sandpaper to remove loose dirt and scale. Inspect the area and repair any anomalies, as required.
  3. Apply Black Magic. Remove release liner from the PipeSock™ and apply Black Magic™adhesive to the inside of the PipeSock™.
  4. Install PipeSock™ and Reposition Pipe
  5. Carefully position the PipeSock™ on the pipe. Then, lower the pipe on to the support. Taper any excess material with a putty knife.
