From the very beginning, the innovative minds at Applied Felts have pioneered the way for today’s current manufacturing process for CIPP liners and pipe lining materials. In fact, we’ve been providing custom pipe rehabilitation solutions for over 40 years, giving our clients a suitable and cost-effective alternative to traditional methods, like open-cut repair.
Applied Felts is a pioneer in the CIPP process and has played a pivotal role in perfecting felt liners from the very beginning. So rest assured when you purchase liners from Applied Felts, you are getting a solution that stands the test of time.
The CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) manufacturing techniques we’ve developed over the years are still in place today all over the globe, making us the world leader in the industry of pipe rehabilitation solutions. We manufacture large- and small-diameter pipe liners, laterals, and calibration tubes for a range of applications:
Using our CIPP liners for pipe rehabilitation is a fast and affordable alternative to traditional methods like open-cut repair, which are expensive, time-consuming, hazardous, and disruptive to the community.
With our 100% integrated facilities, we have complete control over every aspect of the CPP manufacturing process, including the purchase of materials and our 28-stage quality assurance test. We only patronize the best suppliers, as the quality of pipe-lining material we use directly impacts the liner’s overall durability and strength.
Most cured-in-place pipes consist of a resin-soaked felt tube with an impermeable exterior coating of polyurethane. However, the type of pipeline and the nature of its damage affects which pipe-lining material we use during manufacturing. Since every job is different, we provide more options than just our traditional felt liners, including a felt-fiberglass hybrid with superior strength and durability, making it ideal for pressurized pipeline repair.
Resin: Resin is easily curable with the application of heat, which creates an impermeable seal between the CIPP liner and the original damaged pipe. The resin begins as a viscous liquid and then cures into a tough, ultra-dense, corrosion-resistant material.
Polyurethane: During installation, we invert the CIPP liner to position the polyurethane coating on the interior of the host pipe, which is both impermeable and flexible, making it ideal for temperature extremes. It creates a seamless, jointless barrier that eliminates the risk of leaks or groundwater infiltration.
Standard Felt: Our standard CIPP liners are made from felt, which has a durable yet flexible texture, making it ideal for holding the hardening resin as it cures and adheres to the original pipe.
Hybrid Blend: We also manufacture hybrid felt-fiberglass CIPP liners for our customers with specialty projects. By blending the two materials, we developed one of the strongest and most durable CIPP liners on the market, making it perfect for potable water and pressurized sewer applications.
At Applied Felts, we’re proud to be a global leader in the trenchless pipeline rehabilitation industry. We manufacture cured-in-place pipe liners using superior quality pipe lining materials and a rigorous testing process, providing our clients with an affordable alternative to the expense and hazard involved with open-cut pipe repair.
