Polyurea protective coatings present excellent solutions for potable water vessels, wastewater and sewer facilities, irrigation canals, and retrofitting existing pipe infrastructure; identified as SIPP (Spray-In-Place-Pipe).
SPI is dedicated to preserving and protecting the health, environmental and economic gains that drinking water and wastewater infrastructure provide. With record droughts in the U.S., and limited access to safe water in developing countries, fresh water is a serious concern. We have developed polyurea coatings that provide long-term solutions to protect new or deteriorating infrastructure. Our Watersafe™ UB polyurea, ANSI approved for potable water vessels keeps precious drinking water from being lost, and more importantly, protects water quality.
Growing population means increased demand on Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTP) around the world. To extend the service-life of WWTP, SPI engineered the industry’s most trusted chemical resistant polyureas. Polyshield HT-100F™ UB withstands the harsh environment and chemicals of WWTPs, preventing hydrogen sulfide gas from destroying the concrete; the backbone of these critical systems.
In densely populated areas, and under buildings, it’s almost logistically impossible, and prohibitively expensive to remove failing sewer or drinking pipe. SIPP solutions eliminate these costly and labor intensive processes.The SIPP procedure incorporates polyurea coatings and purposely designed robotics to line in-situ pipes, eliminating the need to remove or replace deteriorating pipe. SPI’s SIPP polyurea coatings are ideal for retrofitting deteriorating pipe. SIPP polyurea can also serve as preventative strength for new pipe installation.
The urgency of dealing with the deteriorating water infrastructure in the U.S. has induced the government(s) to allocate city, state, and federal funds to infrastructure repairs. Engineers are motivated to find new advanced technologies, as a result, it’s creating excellent business opportunities for coating contractors and applicators alike.
