Redline is an epoxy coating that is used for the restoration of plumbing, and mechanical systems. It is a non-invasive process that uses epoxy to coat the inside walls of pipes without destruction to interior or exterior surfaces of building structures, hardscape, or landscape.
Non-invasive pipe rehabilitation
Redline can be used not only as a long-term solution to prevent corrosion and pin-hole leaks, but as a preventative tool to preserve the life of existing piping systems.
Redline is suitable for use in host pipes which are designed to hold pressure, from hot and cold drinking water lines to air and water systems, heating and cooling lines. Redline is designed to be rehabilitate pipes consisting of materials including metal, iron and steel. We can Redline 1 to 1000 metres.
Nuflow is proud to offer Redline as a potable pipe lining technology. This simple but highly effective cured in place pipe restoration system completely coats the inside of your copper or galvanized pipe. The process prevents future leaks and protects your water from lead and other contaminates leached from your piping.
Pipes with a nominal bore reduced to as little as 20 per cent, can be cleaned back out to nearly its full potential, then coated to reinstate its integrity, extending the life of your asset exponentially.
Redline has been used successfully in a variety of applications including hospitals, high rise apartments, factories, fire suppression systems and domestic homes.
What are the benefits?
- Safe and durable
- Cost effective
- Minimal downtime compared to re-piping
- Minimal disruption and no occupant displacement
- Versatility in applications
- Prevents future pin hole leaks and corrosion.
How does the Redline process work?
To prepare the pipe system for Redline, the pipes are blasted with garnet until the pipe is clear of any corrosion. This is collected and disposed of according to Nuflow’s environmental policy.
Once this has been completed, epoxy is blown into cleaned pipes, forming a safe, evenly coated permanent barrier between pipe walls and the product in the pipe. This prevents future corrosion and pinhole leaks forming.
The cause of your pressure pipe problem is identified through water pressure tests and water flow tests. Once this is completed the pipe system is traced.
