NATO Certification

Rapp-it has been granted NATO Certification. This is only awarded to key quality products and suppliers with stringent quality assurance programs. Our NATO Stock Number is 4730-66-1257893.

Potable (Drinking) Water

Both Rapp-it Bandage and Rapp-it Steel Putty are compliant with Australian Standard (AS/NZS 4020:2005). Rapp-it Steel Putty is also compliant with the equivalent US Standard, NSF 61.

Pressure Testing

Proof pressure test successful at 565 PSI (3895 kPa) on 50mm poly pipe with 10mm drilled hole.
Proof pressure test successful at 1160 PSI (8000 kPa) on 25mm poly pipe with 10mm drilled hole.
*Pressure rating will change according to type of pipe and type of damage.

Temperature Testing

Three simultaneous thermal analysis tests were performed on a Rapp-it Pipe Repair Bandage. The resulting continuous temperature limit is 150 degrees Celsius. Rapp-it can withstand intermittent temperatures up to 250 degrees Celsius.
