Pipe Repair Videos

The following videos show products from the SylWrap Leak Repair Range and the Sylmasta Pipe Refurbishment System in action both in the field and at Sylmasta HQ in West Sussex, England.

No formal training is required to repair, reinforce or strengthen a leaking or weakened pipe using Sylmasta products. Simply follow the instructions provided or watch one of these videos to see how they are applied and worked.

SylWrap Leak Repair Kits and the SPRS are used in applications from large-scale industrial pipeline repairs to domestic plumbing applications. They are effective on almost all pipe substrates, diameters and to complex shapes, including elbows, tees and step joints.

Repairs can be built which are pressure resistance to 30 bar, temperature resistant to 120ÂșC and offer excellent resistance against corrosion and chemical attack.

Most products in the SylWrap range have WRAS approval, meaning they are certified to British standards as safe to use with drinking water.

High Pressure Live Leak Repair to Split in Steel Pipe

Demonstration at a UK water company, showcasing how a SylWrap Live Leak Repair can be made in under 30 minutes.

A split was cut into a 150mm steel pipe and pressure set at 6 bar. A Sylmasta technician sealed the leak using Wrap & Seal Pipe Burst Tape and SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage.

As a result of this demo, the water company approved the use of SylWrap Contractor Cases for use on their network.

No Pressure 3mm Pinhole Leak Pipe Repair

Video filmed at Sylmasta HQ of a SylWrap Standard Pipe Repair Kit sealing a 3mm pinhole on a 100mm stainless steel pipe under no pressure.

Superfast Epoxy Putty was kneaded by hand and pushed into the hole. The putty cured within 10 minutes to seal the leak.

The repair area was then overwrapped with SylWrap Bandage, providing a rock-hard, impact resistant layer of protection.

Live Leak 3mm Pinhole Repair using Wrap & Seal

Wrap & Seal makes a live leak repair to a 3mm pinhole in a 100mm 316L stainless steel pipe at Sylmasta HQ.

Pressure was set to 3 bar. One 25mm x 2m Wrap & Seal was stretched by the maximum three times its length and wrapped around the leak area.
As wrapped, the self-amalgamating silicone Tape fused to form a solid rubber band, comfortably holding the pressure of the pipe.

Increasing Live Leak Repair Pressure Resistance

Demonstration video showing SylPad increasing the pressure resistance of Wrap & Seal during a live leak repair to a 7.2mm hole in a 450mm steel pipe operating at 3 bar.

Such a repair without SylPad would require four 50mm x 4m Tapes. Using SylPad, the leak was sealed with one Tape.

With two further tapes added, the completed repair was capable of holding 9 bar pressure.

Pipe Reinforcement Using SylWrap Bandage

SylWrap Pipe Repair Bandage reinforces a 100mm 316L stainless steel pipe sealed with Wrap & Seal at Sylmasta HQ.

Applying SylWrap over an initial leak sealant material protects the repair by forming a rock-hard outer shell.

SylWrap also strengthens pipework by increasing hoop strength and protecting against corrosion and chemical attack.
