Elastopolymer Binder For Interior Pipe Coatings Offers Several Benefits

By Jeff Griffin, Senior Editor | July 2013, Vol. 68, No. 7

“We can custom tailor various mix designs with our elastomeric polymer to create economical material solutions. For example, epoxy coatings have superior corrosion resistance but can become costly when required to have ultra-high build/thickness to bridge large gaps. In that case, structural repair mortar is often used as the filler because it is more economical and is protected with an epoxy top coat. With this new binder material, we can design a single application product that is corrosion resistant and economical, combining the best of both worlds into one product. The process offers many advantages, including reduced time to complete with less risk because personnel spend less time in confined spaces.”

Southern Trenchless Technology offers a wide variety of specialty rehabilitation materials, including 100 percent solids high-build epoxies, high-strength structural mortars and new synthetic geopolymers.
