For nine decades, Denso North America has protected pipelines, fittings, and tank bases from corrosion with its powerful line of petrolatum tape systems. Since the company developed the original Denso Tape, workers have depended on these systems for protection, above and below ground, of pipelines, steel structures, and many other kinds of metal infrastructure. These high-performance tapes can easily be applied by hand to most surfaces, even in extreme outdoor temperatures.
Four products available in Canada
A variety of uses and applications are possible with these petrolatum tapes. Common examples include long-term anti-corrosion protection for pipes, flanges, valves, and related surfaces. Denso petrolatum tape systems also work well for atmospheric use (tank bases, pipe crossing, sweating lines), buried use (pipe couplings and penetrations, cadwelds), marine applications (steel and timber piles, offshore platforms), or commercial and residential purposes. Users can apply these tapes to cold, wet, or underwater surfaces with minimal preparation required.
Denso supplies the following brands of petrolatum tape systems in the Canadian market:
- Densyl tape – This is an all-purpose, non-woven, synthetic fabric tape fully impregnated with a neutral petrolatum compound. Denso recommends it for anti-corrosion protection of wet or dry pipes, flanges, valves, and related surfaces.
- Denso LT tape – Made out of similar materials as Densyl tape is, and used for similar applications, LT tape also has a neutral petrolatum compound designed for use at cooler temperatures.
- Denso Hotline tape – With synthetic fabric fully impregnated with a special blend of high-temperature petrolatum compound. Good for protection against corrosion for pipes, flanges, valves, and similar surfaces, with a service temperature of up to 110 degrees Celsius.
- Denso WB tape – Hi-tack petrolatum tape with polymer backing, fully impregnated with a special blend of rubber polymers and mineral fillers. Designed for anti-corrosion protection of pipes, valves, and fittings in dry sandy soil.
Also available from Denso is protective Glass Outerwrap. This serves as a mechanical protection over petrolatum tape, comprised of a flexible fibreglass cloth impregnated with a water-activated resin, resulting in tough, durable, high-impact protection.
