PIPE Cure Offers a Better Way to Restore and Protect Underground Pipes

October 20, 2020 by NASTT Staff

October 2020—Crosslink Technology Inc. has developed PIPE (Pressure Infused Protective Epoxy) Cure, a fast, easy, and cost-effective way to completely rehabilitate the inside of underground pipes, specifically laterals.

PIPE Cure provides a less destructive and less costly alternative to digging out underground pipes for repair, and it also provides unique advantages over the traditional CIPP (Cure in Place Pipe) restoration products.

While CIPP is a widely used trenchless technology, it can use unsaturated styrenated polyester resin, which may give concern to volumetric shrinkage, odor, adhesion/strength, and sensitivity to temperature.

Crosslink Technology Inc.’s PIPE Cure has been formulated to have:

  • Excellent strength and adhesion (flexural modulus of over 500,000 psi and flexural strength of 7000 psi)
  • Exceptionally low linear shrinkage (0.0001 inch/inch)
  • No odor
  • Ability to cure in underground temperatures as low as 10°C/ 50°F (without a heat source AND regardless of the ambient temperature when it was mixed)
  • Excellent wetting out of fiber in the liner
  • Better health and safety rating than styrene

With Crosslink Technology’s PIPE Cure, you will get a safe, easy, budget-friendly cure for your underground pipe repair problems.
