APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS Denso Butyl Tape System
80 YEARS OF PIPELINE PROTECTION

USE:
For the protection of pipes, welded joints, bends, fittings and similar structures from corrosion, above ground, buried or immersed. To protect the substrate from the environment the tape must cover and make intimate contact with the entire surface.

EQUIPMENT LIST
Power wire brush / scraper / blast cleaning equipment (optional) Brush or roller, cleaning solvent Utility knife, overalls, gloves, eye protection, cleaning cloth, hand cleaner, barrier cream

SURFACE PREPARATION:
Surfaces must be dry and free from dirt. Solvent wipe with a clean cloth to remove any grease deposits. Power wire brush to remove all scale, loose rust and old flaking coatings to achieve a finish of St2 according to ISO 8501-1 or Swedish Standard SIS 0055900. The preferred method for refurbishment of old pipe lengths is abrasive blast cleaning to Sa21/2 according to ISO8501-1 or Swedish Standard SIS 0055900.

APPLICATION:
1. PRIMING
Brush or roller apply a thin coat of DENSO BUTYL PRIMER over the entire area to be wrapped. Allow to tack dry*. Coat a wide enough section so that the primer will protrude slightly from under the tape edges after the tapes are applied. Coverage: Tack dry: Dry film thickness: 5m²/l 5 - 10 minutes 20 - 30 microns

*Tape will need to be applied whilst the primer is still “active”. A slight tackiness indicates it is still active. Once completely set (20 minutes) a chemical bond is unlikely to be achieved. Only a weaker mechanical bond will be obtained.

Fig 1. Priming pipes: Apply DENSO BUTYL PRIMER to entire area to be protected with tape.

2. TAPE APPLICATION
a) Pipes: BUTYL MASTIC DENSO BUTYL MASTIC STRIP is applied to contour weld bends, step down on shop coatings and fill irregular surfaces so that subsequently applied tape can conform smoothly to the substrate being protected. It can be cut into smaller workable strips of mastic and moulded into crevices and cavities.

Apply Denso Butyl Mastic Strip along the longitudinal weld. Once again for ease of application use a DENSO WRAPPING MACHINE. Figures 3 to 8 below illustrates tape application. Fig 8. Diagram showing the correct application of tape. Tape contact with the pipe must only occur on primed substrate. peel back the interleaving and wrap the tape spirally ensuring correct alignment. Overlap each turn by 25mm (3 layer finish) or 55% (4 layer finish). Ideally maintain sufficient tension to reduce the width of the tape by 2–5% to ensure that the tape conforms to the inner wrap tape surface without gaps. Start at the 9 o clock position. 22/04/10 Revision: 1 Page 2 of 4 APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS Denso Butyl Tape System 80 YEARS OF PIPELINE PROTECTION 2. For ease of application use a DENSO WRAPPING MACHINE. 100mm wide for 100mm diameter pipe. apply a 100mm wide DENSO BUTYL MASTIC STRIP longitudinally over the weld and profile or press into the contours before wrapping (figure 8).5m of interleaving and apply the tape firmly to the pipe. TAPE APPLICATION (continued) S43 SELF AMALGAMATING INNER WRAP TAPE Select as wide a width of S43 INNER WRAP TAPE as practical. e. Starting a new roll of tape. Compound side of tape is to be placed down on to the inner wrap tape. R23 OUTER WRAP TAPE Select the same width of R23 OUTER WRAP TAPE as the inner wrap tape used. Fig 7. Overlapping each turn by 55% effectively gives a double layer thickness. Fig 4.g. Peel back about 0. Ideally maintain sufficient tension to reduce the width of the tape by 2–5% to ensure that the tape conforms to the surface without gaps.5m. Diagram showing the correct tension for wrapping tape. The overlapped sections must contact the primer on the pipe surface. Fig 3. The wrapping starting and finish points should overlap the edges of the S43 INNERWRAP TAPE by 25mm. . Overlap each turn by 55% to give a double layer thickness of S43 tape. Apply tape whilst primer is still tacky. Fig 5. Unroll the tape about 0. Fig 6.QA Date of Issue. Note: Where longitudinal welds are included in the area to be wrapped. Start new rolls by overlapping the ends by one tape width. Start new rolls by overlapping the ends by one tape width.

Proceed as per (a) but start and finish wrapping with a minimum of 75mm overlap (or width of the tape being used. Wrap the section of pipe as per (b). to provide a key for the primer. Note cutback of coating can be 75mm 150mm either side of the weld except on FBE coated pipe. Over wrap repair as per section (b). Fig 16.
