PolySeal TYPES

MarMac PolySeal is a flexible, high-strength pipe coupling that permanently seals and restrains corrugated plastic pipe. PolySeal Couplers are over-engineered, reinforced external joint seals designed to connect HDPE / HDPP corrugated pipe, while remaining both infiltration proof and exfiltration resistant. PolySeal Couplings are perfect for cut & butt joints, field repairs, new detention systems, and more.

Engineered to last.

MarMac manufactures PolySeal couplings with interval layers of our rubberized mastic, specially formulated to adhere aggressively to all known pipe surfaces. An internal sheet of strong, puncture & shear resistant, woven polypropylene and an outside backing of cross-laminated polyethylene makes PolySeal resistant to acids and bases. The integrated compression bands mechanically “lock” the coupler into the corrugations of the pipe, bonding the mastic to the pipe wall and forming a permanent seal.

Today, millions of PolySeal pipe couplings have been installed underground around the world with nearly a 100% success rate. PolySeal is the proven, premiere coupler HDPE pipe connections, and the “go to” solution for when it really matters. MarMac PolySeal is designed to be installed in the worst field conditions, succeeding where other corrugated pipe adapters fail, and is an excellent choice for both field repairs and new installations. These couplers are over-engineered to outlast the pipes they connect.

The minimum length of PolySeal couplers is the circumference of the outside diameter of pipe, plus an additional eight inches (8″) for overlap.

Coupler composition:
  • Heavy duty polyethylene backing
  • Internal woven polypropylene reinforcement
  • Reinforced compression bands
  • Specially formulated mastic contact layer

In a laboratory setting, PolySeal held 10.8 psi internal hydrostatic pressure for 10 minutes with no visual leakage, as per ASTM D3212. PolySeal has been third party tested to 22” Hg vacuum for 10 minutes with no loss of vacuum, per ASTM D3212.

PolySeal should be stored carefully in their original packaging, out of direct sunlight and protected from the elements. Materials should be kept away from direct heat, sparks and open flame. For optimum results, couplers should be stored in a tepid (60°-80°F) environment prior to installation.

MarMac PolySeal Coupler for HDPE and ADS Pipe

STANDARD PolySeal

Common-Size Seals for HDPE/P Pipe Joints

MarMac’s PolySeal is a high performance, external joint coupler designed for the prevention of infiltration and resistance of exfiltration at joints of common HDPE & HDPP corrugated pipe.

Our standard PolySeal coupler has three integrated compression bands. Sizes under 30″ use hose clamp bands made of high-strength 409 or 304 stainless steel. Heavy-duty sizes (≥ 30″) utilize built-in ratchet straps.

Double-Wide PolySeal

A Wider HDPE Coupler for Added Security or Repairs

MarMac’s Double-Wide PolySeal Couplings are manufactured with the same high-quality, incredibly durable materials, but nearly twice the width of a standard PolySeal. Our Double-Wide PolySeal Coupler comes with five integrated compression bands, as opposed to three with our Standard coupler.

Common uses include repairs, such as instances where pipe ends have minor damage or to cover small punctures in a pipe caused by fork trucks or similar. Additionally, Double-Wide PolySeal can be used in place of standard PolySeal to make a stronger, stiffer joint.

MarMac Chemical & Corrosion Resistant Coupler

Chemical Resistant PolySeal

Protection Against Soil Containing Hydrocarbons

Chemical Resistant PolySeal (PolySeal CR) uses a proprietary, co-extruded, multi-layer barrier film lamination on the outside of the coupler. This film has been tested per ASTM F739 against a battery of chemicals at 95% concentration for permeation resistance with excellent results, including Benzene, Toluene and other hydrocarbon based solvents.

Common uses for PolySeal CR include install locations where the soil contains, or has the potential to contain hydrocarbons. These couplers are most frequently used in airport detention systems, as well as many other applications.
