There is a significant part of the global wastewater and clean drinking water infrastructure that is decades past its original service life and rapidly deteriorating. This is especially the case with concrete, steel, and wooden pipes that were buried underground long ago during the last century. In the U.S. alone, there are hundreds-of-thousands of miles of buried drinking water and wastewater pipe. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) released a report card in 2013 that assessed the condition of America’s infrastructure. The ASCE report card gave a school letter “D” grade for the U.S. wastewater and drinking water infrastructure. The report estimates $298 Billion dollars will be needed over the next twenty years just to repair the U.S. wastewater and storm water systems. The ASCE estimates 75% of this crucial expenditure will be needed to repair pipes. This critical issue must be resolved to help protect the public health for current and future generations.
POLYSHIELD HFM – SIPP/CIPP™ – In Situ Restoration of Pipes and Tanks, Including Potable Water. NSF – ANSI 61 Compliant (¼ – ½ Inch Coating Thickness).
SPI manufactures seamless, elastomeric, primary and secondary containment liners for storage tanks, pits, and above & below ground pipes. These high strength polyurea industrial coatings protect and extend the service life of wastewater and drinking water infrastructure. Specialty Products trenchless pipeline rehabilitation system allows for the application of internal pipe liners in place (in-situ) or at OEM facilities. Applying a structural liner in place avoids the extremely expensive process of digging up or replacing thousands of miles of buried pipe. This innovative process is called Spray In Place Pipe (SIPP) or Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP). Specialty Products manufactures SIPP / CIPP polyurea structural liner solutions that are compliant with national NSF – ANSI 61 potable water standards.
PTU™ & PTU-AR™ – Hydrocarbon, Acid, Alcohol, Wastewater, Hydrogen Sulfide Gas Resistance for Primary & Secondary Containment.
SPI also manufactures chemical resistant, polyurea elastomers used to protect wastewater, mining, oil and gas, and petrochemical infrastructure. These cutting-edge coatings provide the industry’s strongest chemical resistance to wastewater, hydrogen sulfide gas, alcohols, acids and other hydrocarbons.
