Picote® Certification and Approvals
Picote® Solutions’ Brush Coating™ System, used to rehabilitate deteriorated pipelines, has been assessed and approved by WRc in the UK.
WRc is an Independent Centre of Excellence for Innovation and Growth, operating across the water, environment, gas and resource management sectors providing independent certification of products and services.
Picote® was presented with the certification for the system
The brush coating system rehabilitates non-potable and wastewater lines for clay, concrete and cast-iron pipes in DN 50–300 and copper, steel and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes in DN 32–300.
The system uses a Picote® milling machine and resin injection unit to coat the inside of the pipe with a dual colour 100 per cent solids epoxy two-part resin, DC1000E.
Brushes attached to the machine’s cable spread the resin coating, which is supplied in pre-batched cartridges, evenly over the pipe interior where it cures under ambient conditions.
Depending on the state of the host pipe, two or more layers of the resin coating can be applied to complete a full rehabilitation.
WRc said the system met all the requirements of the assessment schedule, including appearance, mechanical characteristics testing, resistance to high pressure water jetting, resistance to abrasion, product design, product, materials manufacturing and installation procedures.
WRc approved status is a major step forward for the Picote Brush Coating System, it has now been independently and successfully assessed by one of the World’s foremost wastewater systems assessment organisations.
Picote Brush Coating™ System is WRc approved for all non-potable and wastewater applications for pipe diameters between DN50mm (2”) and DN300mm (12”) diameter for clay, concrete and cast iron pipes and DN32mm (1 ¼”) and DN300mm (12“) for copper, steel and PVC pipes.
ASTM: – ASTM approval of Picote 100% Solids Epoxy when used to create a monolythic semi-structural repair of decayed and damaged pipelines. Designed exclusively for the Picote Brush Coating™ System.
