Damaged Pipes? No need to excavate – line it instead!
The simplest and most cost effective way to repair a damaged pipe without the need to excavate.
How It works
The new pipe material is similar to GRP (glass reinforced plastic) and in all cases will be superior in quality and strength to the pipe which it lines. The new pipe is moulded into the damaged pipe by an ingenious method called ‘inversion’ using water or air pressure, fitting it tightly against the wall of the existing pipe. When the inversion is complete the new pipe (which is originally flexible) is now rigid, resulting in a strong, tough pipe tightly fitted within the existing pipe with only a minimum loss of cross section of approximately 6%.
Understanding the lining.
The liner is manufactured from a special dense impermeable felt and is designed and tailored to fit exactly the internal dimension of the pipe to be refubished. The thickness of the lining material can be varied according to design specifications required.
We have a selection of three special resins systems – Polyester, Silicate and Epoxy with different curing times – suitable for various conditions and applications. These are impregnated into the liner prior to installation in the pipe.
