AUSPREG UV FOR PIPE REPAIR

 

Auspreg UV offers a fast and reliable repair solution for either above ground or underground damaged pipes or pipes showing signs of potential leakage.

 

The product is useful because:

  • It provides a mechanically strong full task worthy repair mechanism

  • Chemical resistant

  • Corrosion resistant

  • Waterproof and watertight

  • Economical to use

  • Fast and easy to apply

  • Safe to apply, no heating required.

  • Adheres to all surfaces

  • Does not require additional resins or other chemicals to initiate curing.

  • Permanent

  • Long lasting

Auspreg UV can be applied to oil pipes, gas pipes, water pipes, heating and cooling pipes, and chemical pipes. Repairs can be done in less than an hour and at a fraction of the cost of having to replace whole pipe sections. Once cured, Auspreg UV is then highly resistant from further corrosion both inside the pipe and outside.

 

The repair should last a minimum of 10 years under normal conditions Auspreg can withstand pressures of 90 bar and higher depending on the amount of layers used.

 

The most suitable products for pipe repair especially where anti-corrosion properties are required include:

CONCLUSION: Pressure testing was continued on 15th December 2003. There was no leakage found on the applied sample at 1500 PSI. The pressure was increased to the maximum capacity of the pressure gauge which is 2000 PSI and still able to withstand without any leak.
