MacWrap for RCP

External C-877 Type II compliant coupler for RCP joints


External seals for reinforced concrete pipe joints.

MarMac’s MacWrap for RCP is used for external seals for reinforced concrete pipe. It’s an advanced external joint coupler specifically designed for preventing infiltration at connections of reinforced concrete pipe, manhole sections, box culverts and many other round or elliptical concrete structures.

MacWrap is reinforced rubberized mastic external sealing bands with integrated mechanical compression straps that are used to seal the joint between two sections of reinforced concrete pipe. The rubberized mastic is formulated to adhere aggressively to all known concrete surfaces. Additionally, the integrated compression bands mechanically seal and form a permanent bond to the pipe wall. The woven polypropylene component provides shear and puncture resistance. The minimum length of the coupler is the circumference of the outside diameter of pipes to be sealed and an additional eight inches (8″) for overlap. Two layers (minimum) of rubberized mastic (0.120″ thick) with a sheet of strong puncture resistant woven polypropylene with an outside backing of cross-laminated polyethylene resistant to acids and bases.

MacWrap exceeds ASTM C 877 (Type II), the industry standard for external joint seals for RCP and structures. MacWrap integrates several unique components into a single customizable full perimeter external sealing band. Our specially formulated mastic provides a full perimeter positive seal against infiltration and exfiltration. MacWrap is reinforced by internalized woven polypropylene with a heavy duty polyethylene backing and secured with tensioning ratchets. MacWrap is appropriate for bell-and-spigot as well as tongue and groove applications.

MarMac’s MacWrap is designed to be installed in the worst field conditions and protects your system from infiltration and exfiltration permanently. MacWrap succeeds where other products fail, and is appropriated for rehabilitation of failed joints and new installations.

MacWrap couplers are available with UV-resistant backings for above-ground applications.

MacWrap 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.
