Scott & Fyfe has expanded its range of Alphashield cured in place pipe (CIPP) products and refined it into four new product groups.
Alphaduct is Scott & Fyfe’s seamless glass textile liner designed for the fast assistance of pipe rehabilitation systems. The 100% glass tubular knitted structure can come with either a TPU or PVC outer foil. This material can perform diameter changes as well as lining through multiple 90° bends without any folds or wrinkles. Alphaduct also has the ability to cure in both high temperatures and ambient temperatures.
The patent pending Alphaduct Retractable Liner is soon to be added to the range. This material has been tested and approved across a range of applications, including potable water and heat resistant installations.
Alphamat is a glass spacer fabric with PVC coating. This product is flat as opposed to tubular meaning that it can be used for several applications such as wrapping the pipe as opposed to lining it and using it to line diverse and peculiar shapes and sizes.
Scott & Fyfe has also created the Alphalink range which consists of Top Hats and T-Liners – a 100% glass main to lateral repair solution.
Scott & Fyfe has also been working closely with suppliers to create the Alpharesin range of approved resins to pair with the materials and tailor to specific needs.
