Pressurized Pipe Coating
Aquam’s Nu Line™ pressurized pipe rehabilitation solution is used to rehabilitate pressurized pipe infrastructures including but not limited to potable water, natural gas delivery, HVAC, and fire suppression.
Nu Line epoxy barrier coating is a unique and patented process derived from the result of over 7000 research hours dedicated to finding the perfect viscosity, air temperature cure time and equipment needed to achieve optimal pipe adherence that provides a longer-lasting piping solution. Once the epoxy coating is applied to the interior of the pipe, it will seal and protect the system from further deterioration, dramatically extending the system’s life. The process can be used on a variety of pipe materials, which include galvanized steel, cast/black iron, copper and lead.
The patented process begins with draining the water out of the piping system and then dry heated air is run through the pipes to ensure the removal of the moisture in the pipes. Next, pipes are sandblasted until clean removing all of the corrosion built up to create an anchor tooth for the epoxy to adhere to. Once the pipe is fully cleaned the epoxy (approved by UL to NSF 61 standards) is blown into the piping system with filter instrument quality air until the pipe is fully coated creating a barrier internal pipe coating between the water and the pipe eliminating future corrosion and lead contamination.
Aquam’s Serline™ pressurized pipe rehabilitation solution is used to rehabilitate lead service line pipes that deliver drinking water into residential and commercial properties. This solution is fully patented. In the application process, a controlled air flow is used along with the injection of the polyurethane to evenly distribute an environmentally safe and regulatory approved polyurethane coating throughout the length of the pipe. The coating is smooth and durable, having a finish that is designed to be resistant to corrosion, mineral deposits, acids, petroleum products and alkalis. Serline™ is only lead rehabilitation solution with DWI Reg 31.4(A) approval.
