Fast-Line PlusTM is an innovative, fast-setting spray-applied resin for the in-situ lining of drinking water mains.

Fast-Line PlusTM has existing National governmental approvals for use in drinking water mains in the UK, France and the USA.
The product can be applied as either a low-build (1mm thick) or a high build (3-5mm thick) lining in a single pass, using conventional
spray lining equipment for fast setting resins, in lengths of up to 650’ (200 metres). Pipe diameters from 3” bore and upwards can be treated with Fast-Line PlusTM. The result is a durable, hard, corrosion resistant barrier layer over the whole of the pipe bore.

Fast-Line PlusTM can be used to resolve water quality and internal corrosion problems in distribution and trunk mains when applied as a low-build lining, and can additionally help eliminate and prevent mains leakage when applied as a high build lining.

MARK

Epoxy resins are supplied as two-part solvent free systems consisting of resin or base material and hardener or activator. When properly mixed they will give a rapid cure, high-build, potable water certified material. The cured material is inert and achieves corrosion protection by providing an impermeable barrier, effectively separating the water from the pipe material, thereby stopping further corrosion.

The finished coating is smooth and hard with excellent water resistance and hydraulic profile.

The lining will not impair the quality of potable water, nor will it affect the pH. The thin, smooth coating enhances flow capacity of previously corroded mains enabling pressure reduction to be readily achieved.

The epoxy resin coatings are applied with the use of in-situ lining rigs equipped with heated materials storage tanks and umbilical hoses and application spray heads.

In the United Kingdom, there has been a complete transition from cement mortar to the exclusive use of epoxy resin/polymeric materials. The main reason for this change was the result of the development of water quality issues associated with cement mortar lining.
