Epoxy Resin - Blistering of Linings

Price: £10  

A range of laboratory tests have been conducted to assess the propensity of current epoxy resins to form blisters and establish the cause(s) of such blistering when used to line cast iron pipes. Although the results of such trials were inconclusive, the tests investigated most of the factors believed to cause blistering and demonstrated that there is no mechanism that can consistently be shown to be the cause. A Code of Practice highlighting improvements to the current regulatory documentation and instigating best working practice has been drafted, and will form the basis for a new Operational Guidelines and Code of Practice document that will be published in Autumn 2001.
