Tapecoat Color Coat Wax Tape
The Multi-Environmental All Purpose Wax Coating System
Color Coat is a versatile 60 mil environmentally friendly wax coating system designed to protect piping and metal structures from damage and deterioration caused by corrosion. The specially formulated odorless, selfhardening, wax coating system is suited for both above and below grade application.
Color Coat is a highly conformable coating that can be applied over most stable surfaces whether they are dry, damp or wet. A coating ideal for protecting structures such as bridge crossings, riser pipe, flanges, valves and all types of piping and metal structures. Especially suited for vaults and close quarter applications because it is virtually odorless, fume free and non toxic.
Resistant to Ultra Violet Light and environmental exposure, Color Coat is durable and aesthetically pleasing, available in a wide variety of colors including a full range of Safety Code colors (Blue, Green, Grey, White, Yellow, Red & Black).
