AOC's newest CIPP resin is Vipel® L085-PPA vinyl ester, which was created for applications that need greater resistance to aggressive chemicals and high heat.

AOC reports that this resin series offers proven corrosion resistance and durability in CIPP projects and also performs exceptionally well at high temperatures, with a heat distortion temperature (per ASTM D648) of 300°F (149°C).

AOC has also developed styrene-free resins for CIPP applications and during the conference AOC Product Leader Bill Moore will present a technical paper on Non-Styrene Options for Cured-in-Place Pipe.

This presentation show how AOC chemists have engineered styrene-free resins that meet the same process and performance criteria of resins that include styrene. It will also highlight how the City of Toronto, Canada, met its requirements for a more sustainable CIPP installation by using AOC’s styrene-free resin. The resin was used for storm water lines and culverts which lead into the Don River and ultimately drain into Lake Ontario.

The 2012 NASTT (North American Society for Trenchless Technology) No-Dig Show takes place on 11-15 March in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
