Stop it pipe repair products STOP IT® Pipe Repair System - Technical Information

Compatibility and Chemical Resistance:

The STOP IT® Pipe Repair tape combined with FIX STIX™ epoxy is generally compatible with a wide range of chemicals and may be used with any type of plastic or metal piping containing:

  • Hydrocarbons including petrochemicals, fuels, solvents, gases
  • Acids
  • Bases
  • Water
  • Slurries
  • Steam
  • Organics
  • Salts

The durability of the repair may be affected by very strong acids (pH under 3) or bases (pH over 12). Consult the STOP IT® Pipe Repair System and the FIX STIX™ Chemical Compatibility Charts for more detailed chemical resistance information.

Potable Water: The FIX STIX™ included in each STOP IT® Pipe Repair System is NSF certified for use on potable water. Stop It® is also accepted for use on potable water lines by the WRC (UK).


Shelf Life: 2 years from date of purchase when stored at 40°F to 83°F (5°C to 28°C) with proper stock rotation.


Colour: White or black

Tensile Strength:
ASTM D638-111, 3,920 psi (275kg/cm2 ).


Bond Strength: ASTM D2095-72, 230 psi (16kg/cm2) average.


Flexural Yield Strength: ASTM D790-1-B, 2260 psi (159kg/cm2).


Durometer Hardness: ASTM D2240, 82 type (d).


Tension Pull Strength: Aplying 2" x 12' STOP IT ® to a 12 inch (5.08cm) PVC pipe coupling provides an average increase of 2132 pounds (967kg) in pull-out strength. Tension pull strength will vary with type of pipe, pipe diameter and amount of product applied.

Temperature/Heat Resistance: From -20° F up to 250°F (-29°C to 121°C) - continuous. From 250°F to 500°F (121°C to 260 °C) - intermittent. If possible, the pipe should be at ambient temperature before application.


Pressure Retention Capacity: Recommended for pressures up to about 400psi (28kg/cm2). Results may vary depending on hole size, type of pipe, pipe diameter, contents of pipe and method of application.


Set Time: Tack free in 3 to 5 minutes at ambient temperatures of 50°F to 80°F (10°C to 27°C). Set time is slower below 50°F and faster above 80°F.


Cure Time: Normally cures in 30 minutes at ambient temperatures between 50°F to 80°F (10°C to 27°C). Longer cure times may occur when ambient temperature is less than 50°F (10°C). Heat may be applied to accelerate cure times. Cure time is greatly accelerated at extremeley high ambient or pipe surface temperatures. The unopened foil pouch may be immersed in cool water for at least 15 minutes to slow set and cure times and to provide ease of handling.
