Future-proofing CIPP liners and pipe rehabilitation solutions

Apr 04, 2022

To get something done, you have to tread new paths. This has always applied to IMPREG since the company’s birth in 1999.

Country Manager Kevin Woolf tells Trenchless Australasia that IMPREG recognised early on that trenchless pipe rehabilitation using cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liners is the technology of the future. 

Further developing this avenue, the company’s CIPP liner systems are developed using innovative high-tech processes, and set new standards.

“Our success proves us right. IMPREG CIPP liner systems for UV curing are used all over the world,” he says. “We are a reliable solution partner at all times, and commit ourselves to the highest future-proofed quality and to environmentally conscious conduct.”

Woolf says the IMPREG liner GL16 was developed in 2016 for all common pipes from DN 150 up to DN 2000.

As a result of good material characteristics and new fibreglass design, IMPREG was able to develop a more finely nuanced gradations of wall thickness.

Not only does this benefit the company’s customers financially, but the IMPREG liner GL16 makes it easier to deal with large dimensions.

“Through the IMPREG liner GL16, the company has consistently extended its position as a technology leader in the market segment from DN 1200 upwards,” Woolf says.

“The unique construction of the IMPREG liner allows a certain level of compensation for dimensional variations in the pipe. We can produce defined dimensional changes in our factory.

“In the Australian Pacific region our range js GL16 which is made up of 0.8 mm fibre glass layers and inner foil, outer fleece and a yellow UV protection sleeve from DN150 to DN2000 with wall thickness ranging from 3 mm to14.6 mm.”

Woolf highlights that the high-tech CIPP liners from IMPREG are simply inserted into the pipes via the manholes, and cured using UV light. The rehabilitated pipe can then be returned to operation immediately after curing, with the company able to rehabilitate up to three pipes in a single day.

With a warehouse located in Brisbane, standard liners in Australia and New Zealand are available to be shipped across the nation, with the liners ready to go for: DN150, DN225, DN300, DN375, DN450, DN525, and DN600.

Woolf says the main aim for IMPREG this year is to continue supporting its customer both onsite and technically.

“Our biggest goal for 2022 is to continue our after market care,” he says. “The customers’ success is our success, meaning our after care is just as important as our product quality.”

As part of the company’s after market care in Australia, Woolf is able to help with structural designs, review CCTV on job sites and provide onsite technical support.

“New customers will also have the opportunity to attend a training session and find out how we already implement the trenchless pipe rehabilitation of the future,” he says. “Our application engineers are onsite for your first project, and support you with advice and assistance during the installation of the IMPREG liner.”

With no need to bring a project to a stop, IMPREG is also able to rapidly and effectively rehabilitate pipes which carry aggressive or higher-temperature waste waters.

“IMPREG CIPP liners are future-oriented, high-tech products which provide all options for the rapid, effective, and economical rehabilitation of pipes of very differing diameters,”says Woolf. “With our liners, we at IMPREG set new standards that will lead us into the future.”
