InduMar Stop It Pipe Repair

A leaking pipe can shut down production for hours, costing you valuable lost production. Stop It® can have you back up and running in about 30 minutes.

The Stop It® Pipe Repair System fixes cracks and leaks in carbon steel, stainless, aluminum, copper, galvanized, PVC, CPVC, PVDF, polyethylene, polypropylene, fiberglass and other pipes so you don’t have to face the consequences of a shutdown until the pipe is replaced.

Stop It® can be used almost anywhere – including underwater and in chemical and military facilities – to repair chemical, steam, process and water lines.

It's an in-field repair system that can be quickly applied by one man, leaving other maintenance staff free to deal with other concerns.

  • The Stop It® Pipe Repair System consists of a knitted, fiberglass tape coated with special urethane resins that are water-activated to change from a wet adhesive tape to a hard urethane plastic in 30 minutes. No tools and no hot work needed to get your plant back to full capacity quickly.
  • Each kit includes a plug of Fix Stix epoxy to plug leaks or cracks or to provide a smooth transition at offsets.
  • Bonds through adhesion and the mechanical bond resulting from the tension of the wrap.
  • While Stop It® can be used on straight runs of pipe, its conformability makes it especially useful for repairing leaks at bends, crosses, tees, or any other location.

"Compared to most adhesive and epoxy products, Stop It® is much easier to use because there is no mixing involved. After using water to activate the resins, wrap the fiberglass material around the leak site and polish until it forms a smooth, hard cap. The key is to quickly apply the roll by pulling it tight around the leak."

"Stop It® conformability makes it extremely effective for repairing leaks at joints, crosses, tees or any other location. The knitted fiberglass allows it to be maneuvered as it is being applied. The mechanics involved in the tight wrapping of the product allows Stop It® to bond more effectively. These adhesive properties allow it to form a successful repair on hard-to-stick pipe surfaces. Stop It® heavy resin load allows it to finish out to create a strong, homogenous repair."
