Inland Pipe Rehabilitation (IPR) 

(678) 374-8194, teamipr.com 

IPR’s proprietary process combines the most-advanced application equipment with a high-strength, low-porosity geopolymer. EcoCast is a completely trenchless lining system for large-diameter applications. 

The process recovers and protects the pipe surface by filling in voids, cracks, and other defects with geopolymer material at structural thicknesses. EcoCast is a more cost-effective rehabilitation solution that extends the design life of your deteriorated piping infrastructure. 


(844) 546-3772, innercuretechnologies.com 

InnerCure Technologies Inc. has introduced a new technology to stop leaks at sewer mainline/lateral connections. 

The InnerCure system consists of a fiberglass or felt lining material, a patented ring that provides a guide to position the lateral connection behind the mainline, rather than in it, and installation equipment. 

The system can be applied either before or after a sewer mainline is relined. The InnerCure system can address the lateral connection only, or it can make the mainline connection and reline the lateral. after CIPP lining of the lateral is complete, InnerCure can be used to connect the lateral to the mainline sewer for immediate or future rehabilitation of the mainline without the need for excavation. The system provides a permanent structural seal at the connection and a chemically-bonded, seamless connection with a sealed annulus between the host pipe and the mainline liner. 


(800) 463-9572, ipexna.com 

NovaForm™ is a styrene-free, expand-in-place, structural liner used for sewer and culvert rehabilitation. 

Available in 6- to 30-inch diameters, the PVC liner allows municipalities to repair failing infrastructure while respecting the environment. Other benefits, versus open-cut replacement, include time savings, less disruption to local businesses and traffic, and flow capacity similar to new PVC pipe. 

An engineered thermoplastic, with the only job-site discharge being water from condensation of steam, there’s no more capturing and treating contaminated curing liquid. NovaForm is manufactured in strict accordance with the ASTM F1504 standard and is third-party certified by CSA and BNQ. 

LMK Technologies 

(815) 640-9302, info@lmktechnologies.com, waterlinerenewal.com 

LMK Technologies is the only provider of the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) F2561-20 compliant T-Liner. This one-piece, homogenous, main-to-lateral CIPP connection liner renews 18 inches and 360 degrees of the mainline, extending up the lateral pipe as one continuous lining. 

The T-Liner is offered with ASTM F3240-19-compliant Insignia compression gasket-sealing technology, which provides a verifiable non-leaking system. 


(877) 426-5948, maxlinerusa.com 

The new Max VertiPox®, CIPP resin – 100-percent solids, styrene-free, two-part epoxy system – is uniquely formulated for vertical pipes and other in-building applications. 

Its thicker viscosity prevents gravity-related resin run during installation and curing. Chemical resistant and odor-free, it adheres to existing pipe materials, even under very humid and wet conditions. 

MaxLiner’s LED-based UV curing system, MaxLight, optimizes CIPP operations by dramatically increasing work efficiency. Curing doesn’t begin until resin is exposed to the finely calibrated UV light, so pre-impregnated liner assembly can happen at the shop or onsite, eliminating pot life concerns and enabling several installations in a single day. 

Miller Pipeline 

(317) 293-0278, millerpipeline.com 

Miller Pipeline offers EX Method, a trenchless installation of EX Pipe causing no disruption to the natural environment or to urban residential areas. 

EX Pipe is high-strength, un-plasticized and PVC manufactured under strict quality procedures using odorless, environmentally safe materials. The pipe is expanded-in-place, not cured-in-place, so factory-controlled, ASTM F-1504 uniform quality is assured for every installation. 

National Liner 

(800) 547-1235, nationalliner.com 

National Liner, through its network of experienced North American installers, provides cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) products and services to municipal and industrial customers to rehabilitate deteriorated pipe. 

Established in 1994, the company has installed more than 35 million liner feet of pipe, ranging in size from 6- through 96-inch diameter. Engineered with a 50-year design life, National Liner products and services economically rehabilitate damaged pipe. 

NuFlow Technologies 

(800) 834-9597, nuflow.com 

NuCure Cold Cure UV is designed for 2- to 6-inch pipe and features dual power supplies and a proprietary Double Helix light train to ensure complete liner irradiance. 

Our signature Precision Push/Pull-in-Place installation perfectly positions liners, and UV curing in as little as 10 minutes significantly reduces labor costs and provides outstanding ROI for installers. 

The NuCure resin/light wave-length calibration developed by NuFlow experts creates a more controlled exothermic reaction, resulting in a true “cold cure” that does not require active cooling, provides a very dense cure, and ensures consistent quality in the end product. 

Perma-Liner Industries 

(866) 336-2568, info@perma-liner.com, waterlinerenewal.com 

Perma-Lateral System, North America’s best-selling, small-diameter (2-8 inches) pipeline rehabilitation, requires only one access point, as the system can be installed through clean-outs or open-end pipes. The liner can be ambient-cured in 3 hours or steam-cured in as little as 20 minutes. 

LightRay3 performs pull-in-place or spot repair operations by only changing the proprietary double-strand cold LED repair packer. The non-VOC resin is pre-impregnated into the high-performance fiberglass liner and shipped ready-to-install. 

Once the site is prepped, casting time can be under 10 minutes, eliminating the risk of premature or prolonged curing times due to temperature variations. 

Pipeline Renewal Technologies 

(866) 936.8476, pipelinert.com 

SpeedyLight+ is the LED-based solution for CIPP that cures liners with half the power. With cure speeds up to five times faster than traditional technologies, SpeedyLight+ lives up to its name. 

Compatible with felt and invertible glass fiber, SpeedyLight+ can cure transitions, verticals and even 90-degree bends in lines as small as 4 inches. The integrated camera lets operators monitor the curing process in real time, allowing for ultimate precision. 

Free of styrene and amines (and the associated odor), light-based cure technologies are less disruptive than their ambient counterparts.
