FlowStop’s exclusive new “Football” Plug activates in five seconds to control leaks on pipes, boats, tankers, rail cars and other industrial applications.

FlowStop launched its newest product – a football-shaped, polyurethane impregnated, water-activated foam plug. Its revolutionary qualities will temporarily stop the flow from a leak in anything from a pipe, to a tanker, to a rail car -- even a boat hull.

What makes the “Football” unique is that it starts as a pliable plug that can be easily inserted into a void. Then it quickly expands and hardens to fill the void, taking the shape of a small child’s football. The versatile repair plug can even be applied below the water line.

The FlowStop Football offers many significant benefits to the spill containment and marine industries as well as fire departments, HazMat teams, first-responders and clean-up crews. It’s ready to use immediately, with no mixing or other prep work required. The application is fast, simple and mess-free. Most important of all, it sets rock hard in under three minutes – and works for all types of accidents, punctures and leaks.

The Football Plug Kit includes five “Footballs” that come in a 3.5-gallon portable plastic water bucket with lid along with step-by-step instructions and protective gloves. Each Football foil packet is approximately seven inches by seven inches. Once submerged in water for just five seconds the yellow-foam is used to plug the hole -- curing in less than three minutes in temperatures ranging from 32 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Remaining Footballs can be easily stored in the bucket for future use.
