Non Drinking Water

Non Drinking Water

Sea water, raw water and waste water are often transported over long distances by use of large steel pipelines and locally by concrete channels. Typical applications include power stations, desalination plants and water treatment plants. The water to be transported can be very corrosive and a specifically designed internal lining is therefore required in order to provide long-term corrosion protection even in immersed service.

Internal Pipe Rehabilitation

Internal Pipe Rehabilitation

3M™ Scotchkote™ innovative rapid setting polymeric linings have been specifically formulated to reduce time and cost. To avoid shutting down water mains for long periods, utilising rapid curing materials provides a cost effective solution that leaves the pipes rehabilitated and minimises disruption to consumers, traffic and the environment.

3M™ Scotchkote™ Pipe Renewal Liner 2400 , the latest addition to the range, is now approved under Regulation 31(4)(a), and when applied at the appropriate thickness, is suitable for use as a Class D Water Quality Lining, and exceeds the requirements of Class B as a structural enhancement lining, as defined in BS EN13689:2002 / BS EN ISO 11295: 2010, with a projected 50 year service life.

With the addition of 3M™ Scotchkote™ Rapid Setting Lining 166L, an air vortex applied coating, 3M products can now be used to rehabilitate small diameter communication pipes, providing a much quicker and more cost effective solution – in fact, it has been shown in field trials that 20 properties per day can be lined compared to typically 15 per week with traditional rehabilitation techniques.
