Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin

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

Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin

Sylmasta E190 Brushable Epoxy Resin is an epoxy adhesive which is brush applied to make more versatile composite repairs to complex sections of pipework.

It is used in conjunction with Fibreglass Tape, providing a high-strength lay-up resin for patch repairs. Strips of Fibreglass Tape are either coated with E190, or it can be applied directly to pipes of all materials and then layered with Fibreglass Tape to form a rock-hard, composite shell.

Making a repair using E190 does require more skill than with composite wraps such as SylWrap HD. The advantage of patch applications is repairs can be made to inaccessible and complex shaped pipes, tanks, and other structures where composite wraps cannot be applied effectively. It also enables multiple damage areas of varying sizes to be repaired using one kit of E190.

E190 Brushable Epoxy can be used to repair damage caused by corrosion or pitting, and for refurbishing systems as an alternative to replacement. It offers excellent protection against future corrosion and chemicals, is temperature resistant to 100°C, and has a 30 minute work time.

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

Fibreglass Tape is purchased separately. Sylmasta will advise on the process and the quantity of Tape required once the size of the application and the type of repair has been established.

How to make a composite pipe repair with E190 Brushable Epoxy

Before E190 Brushable Epoxy can be applied, the surface requiring protection or repair must be prepared.

All paint, rust and grime must be 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 the E190 coating 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 ratio prescribed and then a first layer of Epoxy Resin brushed over the area of pipework requiring a composite repair.

A layer of Fibreglass Tape is added over the E190 with the Tape then coated with further E190. The application continues in this, each coating of Epoxy Resin layered with Tape until the repair is completed with a final top layer of E190.

In applications where there is not enough room to wrap Fibreglass Tape, such as pipework located in confined spaces or when patch repairing tanks, strips of Tape are instead cut off and pressed into the E190 rather than being wound.

Alternatively, the Fibreglass Tape can be coated in E190 prior to being applied to the surface. This though can be a more difficult method of application. Full instructions and guidance for all 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.

Applications

  • Steel pipe composite repair, iron pipe composite repair, copper pipe composite repair, PVC plastic pipe composite repair, GRP pipe composite repair
