EPOXY LINING

Nu Flow’s Nu Pipe epoxy coating system is applicated regularly in pipe diameters of 1/2" to 12".
Epoxy coating restoration of plumbing, structural pipe, and mechanical systems is a non-invasive process that uses epoxy to coat the inside walls of pipes without destruction to interior or exterior surfaces of building structures, hardscape, or landscape. Epoxy coating is used not only as a long-term solution to prevent corrosion and leaks, but is commonly used as a preventative tool to preserve the life of existing piping systems..A crucial transition has been the adoption of “inside” underground lining applications for repairs to “outside” pipes where, in the past, those repairs were managed as external trenchless repairs requiring external solutions. CIPP restoration is a non-invasive procedure that uses epoxy inside a liner to create a new pipe inside deteriorated host piping systems and can span missing sections of pipe. Epoxy pipe lining is a long-term solution for leaks and breaks, blockages, root intrusion, calcium build-up, water damage, mold, sewer backups and increases flow capacity.

Benefits of Epoxy Re-Lining refurbishment of pipes

Safe and Durable - Nu Flow’s epoxy is UL certified safe to NSF/ANSI Standard 61. The epoxy was developed and patented by the U.S. Navy and has been successfully applicated by Nu Flow technicians since the mid-1980s for the U.S. government and in domestic, commercial, industrial, and other applications. Testing engineers estimate the life expectancy of the epoxy is roughly 100 years.

Cost Effective - Pipe lining is as much as 50 percent less expensive than traditional pipe replacement costs such as repiping. Lining is a non-invasive process, so there is no destruction to buildings, hardscape or landscape. Reconstruction costs for repiping are as much as 60 percent of direct pipe repair costs and epoxy lining eliminates the need for reconstruction.

Minimal Downtime - The epoxy lining process takes a fraction of the time of traditional repipe methods. For example, a repiping job that would normally take a full 6 to 8 weeks can take as little as two weekends (or 4 days) for Nu Flow to complete.

Minimal Disruption and No Occupant Displacement - Nu Flow’s pipe restoration process is quick, quiet, non-invasive, and requires no displacement of a building’s occupants. When needed, temporary bypass water systems are quickly installed to provide uninterrupted water service so that occupants, businesses, and clientele may continue business as usual in an undisturbed environment.

Versatility in Applications - Epoxy lining can be performed in any metal pipe in any building, structure, or environment, above or below ground. Lining has been installed by Nu Flow technicians in the piping systems for hotels, high-rise condominiums, hospitals, restaurants, airports, schools, museums, U.S. Navy ships and many other commercial and industrial companies. The solution is available for potable water pipes as well as hot water recirculation systems, fire sprinkler and fire suppression systems, chiller lines and HVAC systems.
