For Above Ground Piping

Trenton #2 Wax-Tape prevents corrosion on above ground piping, bridge crossings, vaults, and other straight or irregular surfaces. It is easy to apply, requires no special equipment, is compatible with other coatings, and requires only minimal surface preparation. Non-toxic and non-carcinogenic, #2 Wax-Tape is composed of inert, non-biodegradable materials, so it is essentially unaffected by the elements.

#2A Wax-Tape completely conforms to irregular surfaces, and is unaffected by the elements.

#2A Wax-Tape provides long-lasting protection of bridge spans from UV, weathering and road salt runoff.

Wax-Tapes are applied with minimal surface preparation on wet, sweating pipe that may be found in vaults or meter stations.

  • Description: #2 Wax-Tape is a plastic-fiber felt, saturated with a blend of high melt microcrystalline wax, solvents, and corrosion inhibitors, forming a tape wrapper that firms up and is then suitable for painting.
  • End Use: For application of above ground piping, bridge crossings, vaults, and other straight or irregular surfaces to prevent corrosion.
  • Packaging: Packaging available in rolls of 4 in. or 6 in. width by 9 ft. length. Special widths and lengths are available as per customer requirements.

A simple and inexpensive solution for lead paint problems is to encapsulate with #2 Wax-Tape
