Syntho-Glass® UP

Description

SynthoGlass® UP

Under-pressure leak repair kit

Syntho-Glass® UP Repair System was specifically designed for under pressure leak repair applications on copper, steel, SS, PVC, FRP, concrete, rubber, and more. By combining the original Syntho-Glass® product, with the extremely chemically resistant Syntho-Steel™ and unique Pressure Sealing Rubber Tape, this offers the geometric flexibility to repair joints, tees, couplings, and pinholes. This complete system simplifies the application process and is prepackaged to accommodate pipes up to 10 inches in diameter. Larger repair applications can be engineered to meet your requirements.
