PIPE DOCTOR NO-DIG PATCH REPAIR KIT

A handy kit containing everything needed for a permanent and watertight repair on straight pipes.

Pipe Doctor, the original WRc Approved patch repair system in the marketplace (certificate number PT/318/0311), is a high performance no-dig pipe repair solution that provides a quick and easy to use method of repairing damaged drainage and sewerage pipe systems. The system can be used for the repair of pipes of 70-560mm diameter, or larger diameters if required.

Pipe Doctor is installed internally and eradicates the need for costly, disruptive and time consuming excavation work therefore enabling both vehicle and pedestrian traffic to move freely without realising drainage and sewer work is being carried out underground.

The Pipe Doctor system is ideal for specialist contractors who carry out CCTV surveys and repairs as it complements the standard installation equipment required for the pipe repair process.

The Pipe Doctor has been tested using the Fernco installation equipment and a guarantee of 10 years has been established for the materials.

FOR STRAIGHT REPAIRS WITH A FASTER CURE TIME

Pipe Doctor Rapid resin cures in record time for improved efficiency on site – and it’s now WRc approved.

Pipe Doctor Rapid has been developed to offer a significantly reduced cure time compared with other resins.

Curing time is reduced to just 30 minutes at an ambient temperature of 20°C.

Working Time has been reduced to 6-7 minutes at an ambient temperature of 20°C. It is therefore recommended that this product is used for repairs within 15 metres of the manhole, so that there is sufficient time to accurately position the repair within the working time.


Pipe Doctor Rapid is supplied in a handy kit that contains all the necessary equipment required to carry out a single efficient pipe repair including:

  • 2 part ready to mix Rapid resin bag
  • 2 packer protection sleeves
  • Protective gloves
  • Cut to size fibreglass mat

Two standard types of resin are available. Depending on the ambient temperature, the following working times apply as an approximate guide only:

  • 2-3 hour cure resin (S Resin) has a working time of a maximum of 45 minutes
  • 1-2 hour cure resin (W Resin) has a working time of a maximum of 30 minutes

PIPE DOCTOR RADIUS KIT

  • Using a longitudinal overlap of 25mm, the kit is available for the repair of 100mm and 150mm diameter pipes.
  • The resin will cure in the presence of water and will cure while submerged in water.
  • The kit has a shelf-life of 2 years
  • More details can be found in the instructions included with the Pipe Doctor kit.

    In order to ensure a smooth bore, it is recommended that the pipe is jetted and cleared of any debris, solids and grease before a repair takes place. It is recommended that inspection of the pipe is carried out prior and after cleaning in order to establish the condition of the sewer.


 

PIPE DOCTOR RESIN

An efficient mixing method and unique concept in the pipe repair marketplace.

The pack is separated into 2 sections by a plastic sealing clip with the contractor removing the clip before kneading the pack which starts the resin mixing process that is visible due to the transparent bag. Excellent migration properties exist between the resin and fibreglass mat thereby providing the strength and flexibility to permanently repair any cracks or voids.

As the resin is supplied in a double sealed bag there is no need for separate ingredient bottles, measuring containers or mixing buckets which are traditionally associated with other no dig pipe repair systems currently available in the marketplace.

The resin is a water-glass based polysilicate resin that provides strength and flexibility due to its unique cross linked molecular formula.

The resin is able to cure in the presence of water and eradicates the possibility of being washed away. Excellent migration properties exist within the resin that enables cracks and voids to be permanently repaired and gives the contractor the confidence to offer guarantees.


PIPE DOCTOR RESIN

The cured resin has the following properties:

  • High temperature resistance
  • Excellent chemical resistance compared to all other pipe repair resins
  • Excellent bonding properties to most materials
  • Non-flammable – ideal for airports, hospitals, stations and other public places
  • Non-hazardous – no transport or disposal problems
  • Odourless – ideal in confined spaces
  • THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF RESIN AVAILABLE:

    • The 2-3 hour cure resin having a working time of 30 minutes (maximum)
    • The 1 hour cure resin has a working time of 15 minutes (maximum)
