How does Pipe Doctor cured-in-place patch repair work?
Using Pipe Doctor’s cured-in-place patch repair epoxy liner, PlumVac can successfully rehabilitate damaged or broken pipes. The epoxy seamlessly creates a new pipe within the existing pipe system by sealing over damaged areas within a few seconds, thereby enhancing the structural strength of the pipe. Cured-in-place pipe relining can be used on clay, concrete, metal, iron, steel and PVC pipes and is best suited to smaller areas of pipe repair.
The cured-in-place process explained step-by-step
The textile liner is infused with a resin mixture (usually an epoxy base).
Using air pressure, the resin-soaked liner is inserted into the damaged pipe.
A calibration tube is placed inside the liner to solidify and cure the resin against the damaged pipe.
A new pipe is created.
