4 1.Tubular product

Product description

TPSM heat-shrinkable tubes are compatible with standard pipe coatings includ-
ing PE, FBE, tape and coal tar.
The comprehensive range of sizes allows all pipe diameters upto DN 200 mm to
be covered.
From nominal pipe size DN 200 and larger, we recommend the heat-shrinkable
wraparound sleeve WPC or HTLP.

Product features/benefits • Installation is carried out directly on the cleaned and dried (pre-heated) pipe
surface. No primer is required to promote adhesion
• Compatible with standard commercial mill-applied coatings
• In the event of mechanical damage, the sealing adhesive flows and seals off
the damaged area (self-healing effect)
• No special tools needed, leading to low installation costs
• Continuous, tubular design means no closure patch is necessary (tubes must
be slided over the pipe prior to welding the joint)
• The thick-walled structure of the crosslinked heat-shrinkable material gives it
high impact strength and penetration resistance (TPSM-C30)

Ordering information For ordering see ordering description in table below.
Standard version suitable for commonly pipe diameter used cutbacks:
• up to 100 mm (4 inches) for each pipe end (DN 25–50 or 1–2 inches)
• up to 150 mm (6 inches) for each pipe end pipe diameter (larger than DN50
or 2 inches)
