no need to dig with pipe patch
Imagine a surgeon inserting a stent into a heart artery. These stents enable weak arteries to continue flowing normally and prevent the heart from future problems. Much like a stent, PipePatch’s proactive approach provides an effective structural Point Repair. When compared to digging or lining an entire pipe, the PipePatch No Dig system only repairs areas that require rehabilitation—saving time, investments, materials and hours of labor. By not lining an entire pipe, PipePatch is able to efficiently make multiple repairs, remain environmentally friendly and may only require as little as one factory trained installer. As infrastructure constantly requires maintenance, a point repair is the number one solution for structurally rehabilitating pipes, allowing our customers to allocate their time, funds and resources elsewhere.
PipePatch restores structural integrity to damaged pipes, while exceeding the CIPP Specification ASTM F1216. This Specification requires materials to be tested for a 50-year minimum service life, verifying that PipePatch is unusually long-lasting and effective in ending infiltration. Because PipePatch creates a pipe within a pipe, the fully cured resin and fiberglass serve as a structural barrier between the interior of the pipe and the exterior environmental conditions. Additionally, many PipePatch products meet NSF and ICC-ES-PMG specifications. PipePatch’s trenchless technology has been tested and proven to withstand pressure, extreme conditions, and time to ensure that the pipe is rehabilitated and preforming exceptionally for years to come.
Increased Flow Capacity
Compared to other point repair systems, PipePatch provides the smallest reduction when utilizing trenchless technology to rehabilitate pipes. When the installation is complete and fully cured, PipePatch is just 1/8” thick, therefore only minimally altering the original diameter. PipePatch’s smooth interior and tapered ends typically improves flow capacity and overall performance of the pipeline, along with providing exceptional corrosion and abrasion resistance. Because of its thinness and smooth qualities, the integrity of the pipe is not compromised and can continue flowing normally—without infiltrations.
