  1. Repeat step 1

  3. Repeat step 1
  4. Repeat step 2
  5. Repeat step 1

 

This is the standard repair method for a leaking pipe.

If it is required just to PROTECT corrosion or a cosmetic surface required then step 1 followed by step 2 followed by step 1 will normally be sufficient.

If however there is a degradation of wall thickness then it may well be required to use the same procedure as for a leaking pipe.

NOTE: BOTH repairs can be over painted or coated as required. For the best coating to protect against chalking (occurs sometimes in high humidity areas) then please consult the factory This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
