This tool removes oxidation from plastic pipes prior to welding

The new PREP (peel, remove, edge and plane) tool prepares thermoplastic pipes for socket welding by removing oxidation. Being able to remove naturally occurring oxidation from pipe made from thermoplastic materials, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, decreases installation and maintenance time. Using this tool, the outside layer of the pipe is removed, the edge of the pipe is beveled to ensure easy insertion into the socket fitting, and the face of the pipe is planed to straighten uneven cuts. Available in six sizes ranging from ½- to 2-in., the PREP tools are available individually or in kit format, with manual handles and spare blades also available. — Asahi/America, Inc., Malden, Mass.
