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.
Features & Benefits
- Strong, permanent, shear & puncture resistant
- Easily installed & immediately inspectable
- Millions of couplers spanning several decades with nearly a 100% success rate
- Full-perimeter, positive seal = infiltration-proof

Tongue & Groove RCP
MacWrap for RCP
External seals for reinforced concrete pipe joints
A high performance, external joint coupler designed for the prevention infiltration and exfiltration at joints of bell-and-spigot as well as tongue-and-groove reinforced concrete pipe.
MacWrap’s specially formulated mastic is designed to aggressively adhere to the exterior concrete pipe surface, with the tightened mechanical straps creating an indestructible seal. MacWrap for RCP is permanent, immediately inspectable, and boasts a 100% success rate. Simply put, MarMac MacWrap is the best there is.
MacWrap for MANHOLES
External seals for precast manhole structures
An advanced external joint coupler specifically designed for preventing infiltration at connections of manhole sections.
MacWrap for Manholes is designed to be installed in the worst field conditions, permanently protecting manholes from infiltration and exfiltration, succeeding where other couplers & seals fail.
MacWrap for BOX CULVERTS
External seals for stormwater retention systems & 4-sided structures
An external sealing band that creates a full perimeter seal on all four sides of a stormwater detention system. A specially-formulated, aggressive mastic combined with integrated compression bands makes MacWrap the best method of preventing infiltration of subsurface materials into a box culvert. MacWrap for Box Culverts is designed to be leak proof and puncture-resistant against aggressive backfills.
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. These couplers are typically specified for gravity flow applications, such as storm water and sanitary sewer / wastewater 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. Our chemical-resistant coupling has a proven track record spanning over 3 decades, as an assurance against joint failure, joint rehabilitation, and hydrocarbon solvent resistance.
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.
MacWrap REPAIR COUPLER
External seals for RCP & manhole joint rehabilitation
An advanced, external joint coupler, specifically designed to repair compromised joints of precast structures while simultaneously preventing infiltration. MacWrap Repair couplings can be used for the rehabilitation of tongue & groove and bell & spigot reinforced concrete pipe as well as manhole sections, restoring the integrity of damaged joints.
