Riser Kit Application Producedures

  1. Dig minimum 3″ deep soil surrounding the riser.
  2. Wire brush so that the surface is free from loose rust, dirt and old, loose coating.
  3. Wipe the area clean. Surface should be wiped as dry as possible.
  4. Hand apply the primer. Firmly rub and press the primer onto the surface to displace the moisture and ensure that the primer is adhering to the metal surface.
  5. Pay special attention to applying Primer in and around all angles and threads.
  6. Wipe hands clean of Primer. Remove pad of Trenton Wax-Tape wrap from package and remove the backing paper.
  7. Starting at the bottom of the riser, firmly press the Wax-Tape wrap around the pipe with the seam facing toward the back of the pipe. When using additional pads, use a minimum of 1″ overlap.
  8. Press the pad of Wax-Tape wrap firmly to the pipe. Press to eliminate any bubbles and smooth the lap seams and endseams to ensure that they are selaed.
  9. Inspect your work. Make sure all diesired areas to be coated are completely covered. Remove and re-apply, if needed.
