Technical Talk: Epoxy Coatings & Cement Mortar Lining
The speakers will conduct a panel/audience discussion on their experience with epoxy coatings and cement mortar lining.

10:00-10:25 a.m.
Rehab with Polyureas as SIPP Option
Jim Baglier, Owner, Superior Lining Systems
Now that there’s an ASTM standard for water applications, SIPP polyureas are becoming a realistic option for rehabilitation. It has its own unique options, as compared to other technologies or chemistries used for rehabilitation, such as quick histories of robotic and hand-applied polyurea liners in North America over the past 20 years, development of various polyurea chemistry for specific applications, equipment advancement over time to handle various needs, pressure pipe applications (water, sewer, transfer, industrial and commercial), and owner and contractor responsibilities.

baglierJim Baglier, owner of Superior Lining Systems, developed the company’s first robotic spray application equipment for pipelining at a large project in 1999. The next generation of SIPP lining equipment was developed in 2004, and the next year brought computer-controlled robotic equipment including reel and hose with sensors, various lining tools and various material formulations.

10:30-10:55 a.m.
Technical Talk: Rehab with Polyureas as SIPP Option
The speakers will conduct a panel/audience discussion on their rehab experience with polyureas as an SIPP option.

11:00-11:25 a.m.
Structural Repair of Water Lines with CIPP
Cedric Bergeron, Project Manager, DUO Rehabilitation
The session will present a brief overview of CIPP technology and different installation techniques (inversion, pull-in), and  the outline and scope of a lining project from temporary water service, access pits, pipe cleaning, laterals, lining, pressure testing, disinfection and restoration. It also covers water-specific applications, such as pipe diameters, operating pressures and pipe condition; lateral reinstatement and proper technique (including examples and success rate); and a summary of water main rehabilitation experience with case histories.

11:30-11:55 a.m.
Technical Talk: Structural Repair of Water Lines with CIPP
The speakers will conduct a panel/audience discussion on their experience using structural CIPP for water lines.
