As an alternative method of jointing, without the use of a naked flame as in the traditional lead caulking method, we can provide the following cold jointing products:
• Caulking Cord
• CT1 black sealant
Centrally align the pipe spigot within the socket and wet the cord.
Caulk this into the socket up to 30mm from the top. This will centralise the pipes and provide a backing for the top 30mm of the joint.
Fill the top 30mm with CT1 black sealant, apply using a skeleton gun.
When filled, smooth off level with the top of the socket, to provide a sealed joint and neat appearance. No further painting will be required if the pipes are black.
CT1 can be over painted if the pipes are a different colour.
Note: Each joint of a 4” pipe will require approximately 4 metres of caulking cord and a quarter of a tube of CT1.
Estimate usage on smaller or larger diameters pro-rata to pipe diameter.
A typical fixing for eared soil pipes is 100mm large head pipenail, coach screws or other propriety fixing.
Fixing of uneared soil pipe is by a drive in spike.
Alternatively holderbats or earbands may be used for a moredecorative effect. All fixings are available from stock.
