Heat Pack

A method for curing the adhesive used to connect sections of fiberglass/epoxy piping in an underground tank system piping.

The sealant may not cure properly when the temperature is below 65ºF. When piping work is performed in cool weather, pipe joints must be kept warm while the adhesive is curing. This can be accomplished through use of a chemical pack that creates a source of heat, through a chemical reaction, without use of electricity. Other pipe adhesive curing methods include electric heating blankets, forced air heaters, and hot air guns.
