Over the last 40 years, cured-in-place-pipes (CIPP) have been established as one of the most popular pipe rehabilitation methods globally. From sewer pipes to stormwater drains and drinking water pipes, CIPP technology plays an essential role in many industries.
The critical nature of CIPP applications demands reliability. Statistics show that 50% of all pipe repairing projects in the United States use CIPP technology because of its convenience and versatility. Coated fleece is an essential component that impacts the performance and reliability of cured-in-place-pipes.
This article explores the qualities to look for in your coated fleece supplier for CIPP applications.
Following are some distinguishing factors that make e² an ideal coated fleece supplier for CIPP applications.
1) Customized Solutions With Extensive TPU Selection
e² offers the widest variety of TPU to select from. When specialized solutions are required, our partners know where to find our experts who will work with them to understand the challenges and develop the best approach for getting the job done.
2) Extrusion Capacity
Extrusion and lamination are two popular methods prevalent in the CIPP industry. Extrusion allows for the fleece to be anchored into the extruded film by interweaving the fibers into the molten film. From our experience, we believe that extrusion is a better option because of its consistent results. e² has the unique extrusion capability to deliver low thickness solutions starting from 10’ mils (0.25 mm) to 120’ mils (3 mm).
3) Proven Quality Control
Repairs and maintenance are costly affairs, so CIPP manufacturers try to eliminate all sources of deficiencies. Following the proper procedure during coating can minimize many common CIPP deficiencies. The e² system begins with testing of incoming raw materials, in line QC during the manufacturing process, and destructive testing of manufactured products to ensure the reliability of our coated fleece.
