  2. Prepare the surface by roughening the pipe with emery paper or equivalent.
  3. Apply the enclosed latex gloves.
  4. Open aluminium foil pouch and immerse Rapp-It in temperate fresh water for 10 seconds
  5. Remember the entire contents must be used once the package is opened.
  6. It is important that Rapp-It is applied quickly as curing begins once the roll is taken out of the water.
  7. Apply Rapp-It around the damaged area, expanding up to 50mm either side of the leak to ensure complete coverage.
  8. Whilst wrapping, pull each layer tightly using your hand to mould and squeeze the layers together. Continue this action during and upon completion.
  9. For best results, manufacturers recommend the completed application should be no less than 10mm in thickness.
