    The SplashGard™ system is a specialized coating system designed to easily adhere to wet steel surfaces and prevent corrosion. It is comprised of SplashBond™ Adhesive undercoating and Splash Wrap fiberglass cloth outerwrap, impregnated with moisture cured urethane (MCU) resin. The SplashGard™ system not only resists wave action and corrosion, but can also be applied underwater to provide structural reinforcement – perfect for use on risers.

    1. Surface Preparation 
    Remove all soft coatings and media blast the pipe to provide an anchor pattern (NACE 1 preferred). On dry surfaces, wipe the surface with a solvent such as Acetone, Toluene, or MEK. For structural repairs, mix and apply filler putty or paste to any defects.
    2. Apply SplashBond 
    Mix equal parts of the SplashBond™ Epoxy Primer until uniform. Apply the primer to the pipe surface as instructed. Allow the primer to sit until a “peanut butter” thickness is achieved.
    3. Apply SplashWrap 
    Follow the wrapping instructions for Pipe Wrap™ or A+ Wrap™, as applicable for the repair.
    4. Apply SplashBond™ Outer Coat 
    Allow the material to cure. Then, mix and apply a coating of SplashBond™ as an outer coating.
