Repair Pipe Leaks FAST W i t h STOP IT

The STOP IT Pipe Repair System has been successfully used to repair a variety of leaks in marine and offshore applications, underwater cable, chemical plants, refineries, municipal water and wastewater utilities, electric utilities, irrigation, pools and spas, commercial, industrial, and municipal buildings; schools; hospitals; farms and many others since 1986.

The included FIX STIX hand-moldable epoxy is NSF certified and safe for use on potable water. Pipes are wrapped with a water activated knitted fiberglass tape, pre-coated with urethane, that can be applied by one person with no mixing, measuring or hot work. STOP IT sets in five minutes, cures fully in 30 minutes and conforms around elbows, tees and other fittings. The surface of the pipe does not have to be clean or dry, just rough.

STOP IT can be applied right over an old rusty line, and can be applied completely underwater or buried underground.

After the 30-minute cure, STOP IT will withstand up to 400 PSI and 500° F and has excellent chemical resistance.

STOP IT reinforces the structural integrity of joints, with tests showing that it adds over 2,000 lbs. of pullout strength to a 2" PVC coupling. The product can also be used on electrical conduit or any cable cover.
