Socket Welding PREP Tool (20mm - 63mm)

Natural oxidation occurs on polyolefin thermoplastics and must be removed in order to achieve the best bonding between pipe and socket fittings. Asahi's PREP tool effortlessly removes oxidation while planing and adds a bevel to the insertion face of the pipe. An added benefit of the one-step process is the marking of the desired insertion depth.
