Protective Liner Systems’ PepetuWall is a new, cured-in-place fibreglass and epoxy composite system that combines the strength of concrete and the chemical resistance of coatings.
Coatings systems often rely on the surface they are applied on to provide support to prevent their failure; while cementitious materials can lack the chemical resistance to survive when exposed to high levels of hydrogen sulphide, regardless of their type and additives. Cementitious material can also be brittle and lack tensile strength.
PepetuWall addresses all of these issues and offers a complete and proven rehabilitation system. Its unique layered composite construction and installation gives it the strength to last, and it adheres to the host structure completely so that infiltration and corrosion are stopped completely.
PepetuWall has been tested and used in the United States for over twenty years, successfully stopping infiltration, corrosion and tree root intrusion. Australian Drain and Pipe Repairs (ADPR) is now importing the product for use in the Australian market.Article continues below…
ADPR Business Development Manager Chris Mayo said it was PerpetuWall’s impressive track record that won ADPR over when they were looking for new products to complement their pipe inspection and relining services.
ADPR has had training with Protective Liner Systems in the United States and has already completed a number of projects in Australia with PerpetuWall, finding clients very receptive to the technology.
With cementitious materials, epoxy coatings, and the PepetuWall rehabilitation system, ADPR now offers an entire range of rehabilitation products for access chambers and similar structures. ADPR hopes to give system owners more choice and value when working to rehabilitate their sewer structures.
