HammerHead Trenchless 

The Bluelight LED CIPP lining system for laterals and small drain pipes is the most advanced light-curing system available.

The innovative technology empowers CIPP lining pros by alleviating the time pressures of other CIPP systems. The specially formulated resin only cures under light in the “blue” wavelength, giving installers a significantly longer working time between liner wet-out and curing. 

Once installed, the automated curing system pulls the LED light head through the liner, curing the resin almost instantly – up to five times faster than other methods. Instead of waiting hours for the liner to cure, a 50-foot sewer line could be fully cured in under 12 minutes. With more than 2 million feet installed worldwide, the Bluelight LED lining system is a proven solution for lateral rehab.

Reline America 

Why is a thinner UV GRP liner a better choice? 

One of the biggest misconceptions with ultraviolet light-cured, glass-reinforced pipe (UV-GRP) liners is that a thicker liner is better. The reality is a thinner liner offers more advantages.

Reline America’s Alphaliner, a thinner, seamless liner, provides the strongest structural properties in the market. Plus, a thinner liner increases the pipe’s hydraulic capacity compared to other rehabilitation options. Alphaliner can structurally rehabilitate pipelines from 6- to 72-inch diameter in a variety of shapes.  

But the biggest advantage of Alphaliner is that everything you need for a successful pipeline rehabilitation project is just ONE call away. It’s no secret that using multiple vendors inevitably slows a project down. It’s simple logistics: the more moving parts, the more chance for distraction, delay and derailment. That’s what sets Alphaliner from Reline America apart.
