Solar-Wrap™ is a pre-impregnated, bi-directional fiberglass wrap utilizing a UV-curable polyester based resin system. It has been designed to be a very fast return-to-service product which can be applied at any temperature without extended curing times. This has been achieved by using a curing process that utilizes UV light and is relatively independent of temperature. Solar Wrap is provided as a roll of pre-impregnated, woven fiberglass tape in a UV-stable foil pouch and should not be removed outdoors without proper UV cover. Solar Wrap is an excellent and versatile solution for any industry where quick-action repair in adverse conditions is a critical aspect for successful operations.

Surface preparation and profiling shall promote continuous intimate contact between the CFRP system and pipe by providing a clean, smooth, and circumferential surface. Surface preparation shall be in accordance with SSPC-SP1 “Solvent Cleaning” and SSPC-SP10 / NACE 2 “Near White Blast Cleaning” 1-3 mil surface roughness (25-75 microns). If an exist-ing coating is present, roughen to degloss. The composite repair system is a bond -critical composite repair system requiring a strong adhesive bond between the clean pipe and the composite system.
Installation of the composite System shall be performed by NRI qualified applicators only. Surface preparation, mixing of epoxy, and installation of the system are to be in accordance with NRI’s composite Installation Guide, latest revision. Quality control inspection during and after installation of the composite system shall be performed per NRI’s Installation Validation Procedure: Quality Control Records, latest revision.
Store in a cool, shaded area at an ambient temperature of 35ºC.
