Seven Fantastic Features of the WPCT product
(This is part 2 of 7 in our Product Spotlight on Covalence WPCT;
Wrap Around Pipe Coating with Thermal Indicator)
WPCT is a product that just happens to be self-healing. This phenomenon exists in other technologies as well; most notably the Stopaq viscoelastic material. In the example below, I've made a small hole in the shrink sleeve backing which reaches all the way to the bare steel beneath.

After a few hours, I took another picture of the sleeve:
As can be seen, mastic flow has occurred to fill in the hole. Bare steel is no longer exposed. There is no longer a pathway for water or oxygen to reach the bare steel. The steel is once again protected; due to the self healing nature of the WPCT.
