When applying protective tape to a pipeline, it can be difficult to create a proper seal on fittings of irregular shape. That’s why Denso North America offers the Denso Profiling Mastic — a cold-applied and self-supporting mastic for creating a smooth profile. This product provides a convenient solution to prepare fittings for a variety of protective tapes.
Denso profiling mastic features
The mastic consists of a petrolatum compound that contains beads of closed cell cellular polymer and additives for flow control. It is often used on fittings such as flanged joints and valves. Typically, the mastic is used along with primer and protective petrolatum or bituminous tapes available from Denso North America.
The mastic offers a number of features such as:
- Easy application in any temperature, ranging from arctic to tropical;
- Free of VOCs;
- Excellent moulding and sealing properties;
- Will adhere to a variety of materials, including PVC, metal, concrete and polyethylene;
- Will not be affected by water, salts or acids;
- Will not harden in cold weather;
- Only requires minimal surface preparation;
- Meets AWWA C217 standards.
