Epoxy vinyl ester resin brings many advantages to CIPP industry

Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is introducing a new high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin called Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester. The resin is Bisphenol-A Epoxy-based dissolved in styrene and is available now for purchase. “We are excited to introduce our newest resin into our already broad spectrum of products,” said Jerry D’Hulster, president of Perma-Liner Industries, LLC. “The high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin offers an excellent balance of corrosion and performance properties. It will allow Perma-Liner to expand to new markets with its unique capabilities.” The new resin provides the corrosion resistance, durability and toughness that is required within the CIPP industry. When it comes to certain specific applications where fluid temperature is relatively higher, the resin has an advantage over epoxy. The demanding needs of many applications including high pressure and/or corrosive environments are also met with the Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester. Perma-Liner’s newest product’s molecular architecture delivers a number of benefits, including superior mechanical properties, excellent catalyzed pot life, and meets the requirements of California Greenbook Pickle Jar Test. There is another key benefit of the new resin: less expensive than the Epoxy...

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

America’s Failing Water Infrastructure: There are Ways We Can Begin to Fix It

There are many variables threatening America’s water from pollution issues and aging infrastructure to raising costs and droughts and rainfall patterns as the climate changes. The U.S. used to be a leader when it came to water infrastructure and management. Now, the U.S. is lagging behind receiving D ratings for dams, drinking water and wastewater. It’s time to start focuses on possible solutions to curb these issues – the U.S. can get A ratings and below are some of the solutions that may get the nation where it needs to be. It starts with creating a national-level governance. Water technically has no boundaries and is very good at sometimes ignoring the municipal boundaries it does have. So what does this mean? One town’s water use or sewage can affect other cities or states that rely on the same water supply. That’s why many countries have a national water authority or commission that oversees water management across the country. The U.S. does not and we’re exactly the opposite. Our nation’s water supply is managed by individual municipalities each doing their own thing. This creates numerous hurdles to climb and makes it difficult to initiate and complete regional projects. To do almost anything, there needs to be a budget and that’s the case with water infrastructure. The government spends only two percent of its GDP on infrastructure, and water infrastructure makes up just a part of that. The U.S. is spending less than Vietnam, Mexico, and Chile. If the U.S. wants nice things, like a water infrastructure that does not fail us, then the U.S. has to be willing to pay for them. One possible solution that most do not consider is the private investor sector. Many investors are interested in investing in water-related issues, but they want to know more about the social and environmental effects their investments will have. The problem is that there are a lot of inconsistencies in how companies report these estimates. It has been suggested that investors, academics and regulators need to team up to create a standardized system of evaluating the impacts of sustainable investments. Another challenge is getting investors to understand how complex and important water is, since it affects agriculture and many...

San Diego’s Safe, Sound and Sustainable Recycled Water

May 19

San Diego’s Safe, Sound and Sustainable Recycled Water

In San Diego, recycled water has become a resourceful and useful means of local water supply. The recycled water is used to irrigate fairgrounds, golf courses, parks, as well as school properties. Recently, the Reclamation system was upgraded to include an additional reservoir, as well as more distribution pipelines. The advanced water treatment system has greatly improved the city’s recycled water quality. Additionally, the recycled water salinity levels have been significantly reduced, which is a major benefit for homeowners using the water for irrigation. The arid San Diego area relies heavily on water imported from the Colorado River and Northern California. Recycled water is a constructive way to help the community conserve water. The city has also experimented with capturing urban runoff to protect beaches and lagoons, then redirecting that water to the sewer system for treatment and reuse. Water conservation will remain an important priority for San Diego neighborhoods. Because of this, the city has reinvented the mainstream car washing method by using technology which recycles water and filters it for future use. This technique will save up to three-quarters of the water that patrons would normally use at home. A typical at-home car wash uses approximately 140 gallons of water. Furthermore, the water used at home drains directly into local waterways, along with the chemicals in the water. The water that is not recycled at a public car wash is sent to the sewer system for further processing, safeguarding the waterways and local wildlife from contaminants. San Diego, you’re invited!! Perma-Liner Industries requests your attendance at our Open House in Anaheim, CA. It’s taking place for three days from June 13th –June 15th and we want to see you there! It’ll be chock-full of live demonstrations and information on all of the CIPP technology available. Don’t miss this! Call us to confirm your reservation @...

San Diego: Its Sewers and Animals

San Diego: Its Sewers and Animals

There have been a couple of incidents, just this year, of animals getting lodged in sewer openings. Thankfully, they were rescued putting concerned residents at ease. However, not before creating an unwelcomed imagery of what could be loitering in our homes.  But what are the best practices for keeping our animals (and residents) safe in our attractive City?  Since smaller animals, mice and rats for instance, have a better chance of gaining entry into the sewer system, one idea would be to install metal grates for floor drains.  Wouldn’t that be better than the arrival of a ‘pocket pet’ in such an unannounced fashion?  Another suggestion is to monitor sewer laterals for any openings that could potentially give way for rodents to enter. And finally, something else to ponder would be installing flap valves that will remain shut unless water is running through them. These are just a few things to remember to keep our residents happy, underground pipelines functioning and our furry and slithery friends out of the sewer system. Perma-Liner Industries is here to help!  We specialize in pipeline repair and rehabilitation.  Our trenchless technology and Cured in Place pipelining system keeps your landscaping intact.  Call us or go online to www.perma-liner.com    Save the Date!  Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss this!  On August 19th Perma-Liner Industries is hosting a very special event and we’d love to see you!!  We’re having our Open House at our facility in Orange, CA. and it’s sure to be a great time.  We’ll have our excellent staff here to answer all of your questions about Cured-in-Place Pipeline products and our state of the art trenchless technology.  Come out and see live demonstrations, share friendly conversations and gain information.  Meals will be provided.  Please register at no cost: info@perma-liner.com or 1-866-336-2568.
