Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin is used as high-strength lay-up resin for making composite pipe repairs to complex shapes, inaccessible pipes and tanks

E190 Epoxy Composite Repair Kit

The Epoxy Composite Repair Kit contains high-strength Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin and Fibreglass Tape. It makes more versatile patch repairs to complex sections of pipework and tanks where direct wrapping is not possible.

E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin is either brushed directly onto surfaces and overlaid with Fibreglass Tape, or coated onto strips of Fibreglass Tape which are then applied to areas requiring repair.

The resin-coated Tape will cure to form a rock-hard, impact-resistant outer shell. It protects, reinforces and refurbishes pipes and tanks made of metal, most plastics, GRP and other composites as an alternative to replacement.

Making a patch repair using the E190 Epoxy Composite Repair Kit does require more skill than with straightforward pipe repair bandages such as SylWrap HD.

The advantage is repairs can be made to inaccessible pipes, difficult shapes and tanks which cannot be effectively wrapped using a bandage. The Kit also enables multiple areas of damage to be repaired, whereas SylWrap HD can only cover one section.

E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin has a 30 minute work time, allowing careful application to surfaces or Fibreglass Tape. It is temperature resistant to 100°C and offers excellent protection against corrosion and chemical attack.

Sylmasta can formulate and supply specialist versions of E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin, for example when greater chemical or temperature resistance is required. For more information on custom-made formulations, please contact Sylmasta.

How to make a pipe or tank repair with the E190 Epoxy Composite Repair Kit

Before E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin can be applied to a pipe or tank surface, the substrate requiring protection undergoes preparation. All paint, rust and grime is removed either via abrasive blasting or with sandpaper and surfaces should be dry and free of grease.

The surface must be roughened first to improve the grip of E190 to the substrate. E190 should be applied as soon as possible after preparation of the pipework.

Part A and Part B are mixed together in the instructed ratio. Once mixed, E190 is brushed onto the pipe or tank, followed by a layer of Fibreglass Tape being wrapped over the resin.

The Fibreglass Tape is coated with further E190, before another overlay of Tape is added. The application continues in this way until enough layers have been built to satisfy the repair, with one final coating of E190 added as the final layer.

When it is not possible to wrap Fibreglass Tape because of space constraints or difficult pipework and tank shapes, strips of Tape are instead cut from the roll and pressed onto a surface coated wih E190.

Alternatively, the Fibreglass Tape can be coated in E190 and then applied to the substrate. Full instructions and guidance for different repair methods are available on the Technical Data Sheet.

E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin has a work time of 30 minutes and a hard dry of 16 hours. A full cure is achieved in 24 hours, dependent on thickness of application and cure temperature.
