Prepare surfaces by removing all loose scale, rust or other foreign matter by grit blasting or wire brush. Surface must be clean, dry and free of grease. Apply a thin fi lm of Denso Primer D to all surfaces to be wrapped and allow to dry. Begin wrapping using a reverse spiral wrap, at the same time, apply a fl ame torch to side of tape that is in contact with the surface. Then, apply heat to form a gloss-like texture to the outside of tape upon completion of wrapping. A minimum 1″ overlap should be used. For severe environments, a 55% overlap is recommended
