Pipe Rehabilitation Case Studies
For over 14 years, Scotchkote™ products have been used to rehabilitate potable water pipes around the world. In the United Kindgom alone, over 10,000 kilometers of drinking water pipes have been rehabilitated with 3M's Scotchkote™ linings. These products have certifications for contact with drinking water in many countries in Europe, North America and Asia. 3M's Scotchkote™ trenchless pipe rehabilitation linings help reduce brown and red water issues, leaks, and ongoing internal deterorioration of pipes due to pin holes and corrosion pitting. Scotchkote™ pipe rehabilitation products help to extend service life without the cost and social impact of more traditional methods such as full pipe replacement. The case studies below highlight just a few of our municipal pipe rehabilitation projects.
