For 90 years, Denso North America has been providing anti-corrosion protection with its renowned high performance petrolatum tapes. Since the development of the original Denso Tape, businesses have relied on these products for above- and below-ground protection for pipelines, fittings, tank bases, steel structures, and many other applications.
Users can easily apply these petrolatum tape wrap systems by hand to most surfaces, even in arctic or tropical outdoor climates.
Offering long-term protection from corrosion
Denso high performance petrolatum tapes have a variety of uses and applications. These include long-term protection from corrosion for pipes, flanges, valves, and related surfaces. Some examples are atmospheric uses (tank bases, pipe crossing, sweating lines), buried uses (pipe couplings and penetrations, cadwelds), marine applications (steel and timber piles, offshore platforms), and commercial and residential uses. Tapes can be applied to cold, wet, and underwater surfaces that have been minimally prepared.
High performance petrolatum tapes available in Canada include the following:
- Densyl tape. An all-purpose, non-woven, synthetic fabric tape that is fully impregnated with a neutral petrolatum compound. Good for anti-corrosion protection of wet or dry pipes, flanges, valves, and related surfaces.
- Denso LT tape. Petrolatum tape made of similar materials as Densyl tape, and for similar applications, but with a neutral petrolatum compound designed for use at cooler temperatures.
- Denso Hotline tape. Contains synthetic fabric fully impregnated with a special blend of high-temperature petrolatum compound. Recommended for protection against corrosion for pipes, flanges, valves, and similar surfaces, with a service temperature of up to 110 degrees Celsius.
- Denso WB tape. Hi-tack petrolatum tape with polymer backing. Fully impregnated with a special combination of rubber polymers and mineral fillers. Developed specifically for anti-corrosion protection of pipes, valves, and fittings in dry sandy soils.
In addition to these products, Denso offers protective Glass Outerwrap, which functions as a mechanical protection over petrolatum tape. Glass Outerwrap is comprised of a flexible fiberglass cloth, impregnated with a water-activated resin, and provides tough, durable, high-impact protection.
