The Best Solution for Jointing Concrete Structures
MarMac MacWrap is a highly-advanced, external joint coupler designed to permanently prevent infiltration at precast concrete structure connections, including reinforced concrete pipe (RCP), manhole sections, box culverts & stormwater retention systems, and many other round or elliptical concrete structures.
Overbuilt to be the best.
MacWrap integrates several unique components into a single, customizable, full-perimeter, external sealing band. Our specially formulated mastic provides a positive seal, battling infiltration. The coupler is reinforced by internalized woven polypropylene with a heavy duty polyethylene backing and secured by high-tensile compression bands with tensioning ratchets.

MacWrap for MANHOLES
External Seals for Precast Manhole Structures
MarMac’s MacWrap for Manholes is an advanced external joint coupler specifically designed for preventing infiltration at connections of manhole sections.
MacWrap is designed to be installed in the worst field conditions, permanently protecting manholes from infiltration and exfiltration. MacWrap succeeds where other products fail.
MacWrap for BOX CULVERTS
External seals for stormwater retention systems & 4-sided structures
CHEMICAL RESISTANT MacWrap
External Seals for RCP with Hydrocarbon Solvent Resistance
Chemical Resistant Macwrap (MacWrap CR), is engineered to be a permanent external sealing band for RCP of all shapes and sizes. MacWrap CR is typically specified for gravity flow applications, such as Stormwater and sanitary sewer when installed in contaminated soils, principally Hydrocarbon based. MacWrap CR will prevent groundwater from entering the system at the joint, as well as maintain the joint integrity even given less than perfect bedding conditions. MacWrap CR has a proven track record spanning over 3 decades, as an assurance against joint failure and joint rehabilitation.
MacWrap CR’s structure includes a proprietary co-extruded, multi-layer barrier film laminated to the outside of the coupler. This film has been tested per ASTM F 739 against a battery of chemicals at 95% concentration for permeation resistance with excellent results, including benzene, toluene and other hydrocarbon-based solvents. A complete list of test results is available upon request.
