12 Dec Perma-Liner Introduces Eco-Friendly Resin
Vinyl Hybrid is made with zero styrene
CLEARWATER, Fla. – Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is introducing a new eco-friendly resin called Perma-Liner Vinyl Hybrid Resin. The newest resin in the company’s robust catalog is the only vinyl hybrid that was designed with zero styrene, extremely low VOC’s and is a hybrid vinyl ester with high-rigid polymer backbone.
“Our newest resin, the Vinyl Hybrid, has an array of benefits that are attractive to those looking for reduced labor costs, fast cure times and more,” said Rishi Vasudeva, business excellence manager at Perma-Liner. “This Resin is formulated with zero styrene – a potentially harmful substance per OSHA – allows it to be used in areas that would previously need to be evacuated due to the presence of styrene, such as schools, hospitals, churches, office buildings and more.”
The Vinyl Hybrid resin has a standard pot life of more than eight hours and uses an easy initiator with one percent cumyl hydroperoxide (CHP) by weight making it cheap, easy and effective. With this new resin, it can be hot water or steam cured at a minimum of 140°F temperature held for 28 minutes with no post cure. The lower cure temperature of 140°F means it’s safer, gentler on equipment, a short time to maintain the temperature and easier temperature to reach for longer shots. Perma-Liner’s Vinyl Hybrid boasts consistent viscosity and is resistant to sag and draining around vertical surfaces and reinforcement.
Perma-Liner’s newest resin joins the company’s other resins: the high-performance Vinyl Ester, styrene-free Silicate and the ever-popular 100 percent solids epoxy.
From its Perma-Main™ Top Gun™ and Perma-Lateral™ Lining System to its InnerSeal™ and heat assist equipment, Perma-Liner’s experience in designing, patenting and manufacturing CIPP equipment and materials continues to rise above the competition and produce products that are cost-effective solutions to repairing, without excavation, existing sewer systems.
