DESCRIPTION  Tapecoat M50 is a 50 mil black or gray polypropylene mesh-backed, cold applied, below grade coating designed to provide superior soil stress resistance. The coating provides protection against corrosion and electrolysis on metal substrates. The mesh backing allows the coating to conform well to the pipe surface but does not stretch or elongate which gives the M50 its exceptional strength against soil stress. 
Tapecoat M50 has an integrated primer; the primer is in the adhesive. This exclusive formulation allows for faster application as there is no need to apply a separate primer when application temperatures are above 40°F. The Tapecoat M50 coating system is VOC free when applied without a primer. When used with Tapecoat Omniprime the coating system will meet even the strictest environmental laws. 
RECOMMENDED USE  Appropriate for coating and reconditioning small to large diameter pipe, bends and metal structures, as a single component coating below grade. M50 is especially well suited for reconditioning field coated pipe and coating pipe in areas with high soil stress conditions
SUBSTRATE COMPATIBILITY  Steel, Stainless Steel, Ductile Iron, Other Metals, FBE, PE, PP 
SURFACE PREPARATION  SSPC SP-2 Hand Tool Cleaning, SSPC SP-3 Power Tool Cleaning or SSPC SP6/NACE No. 3 Commercial Blast Cleaning 
OPTIONAL PRIMER  Tapecoat M50 has an integrated primer to allow for quick, easy and permanent adhesion. When required by the job specification or when application temperatures are below 40°F, a 4 mil WFT of Tapecoat Omniprime may be applied to the pipe surface to ensure the required bond
