PipePatch point repair utilizes a patented non-hazardous resin that is odor-less, non-flammable and cures in the presence of water. With outstanding bonding properties to most materials and resistance to 63+ chemicals and oils the PipePatch point repair resin requires no special transport or disposal considerations.
The key design consideration in CIPP liner installation is the ability of the cured-in-place pipe to withstand buckling. Buckling occurs due to persistent loads from ground water, soil, and live loads, which causes the pipe to creep reducing its capability to resist external pressures. The resin and lining tube type combine to determine potential buckling. There are generically two types of lining – non-reinforced and reinforced liners. PipePatch point repair uses a fiberglass reinforced liner to avoid any potential buckling.
PipePatch can be installed only by Certified PipePatch installers. Source 1 Environmental offers free, on-site Certification training to municipalities and companies who purchase the PipePatch system.
