The technical data supporting our claims relative to the unequaled structural integrity provided by Resinating Fiberglass Expansion Liners and Resinating’s EIPI Technology is covered in this section of the website.
The results of the following laboratory tests are summarized in sections below. There is a link to the actual Laboratory Report for each test at the end of each summary:
- ASTM C497 tests of Resinating Liners vs Class III RCP
- Pull Test of Resinating Liners bonded to concrete
- ASTM C497 tests of Resinating Liners vs Hobas
- ASTM D790 tests of Resinating Liners vs Hobas
Simply stated, these test results confirm the extraordinary strength of EIPI Technology and Resinating Fiberglass Expansion Liners…they are STRONG!
- Class III RCP that had failed, when lined with a Resinating Liner was 50% +/- stronger than when the RCP was new.
- In the “Pull Test” on the Resinating Liner, the weakest link broke first…the concrete.
- Hobas 46 that had failed, when lined with a Resinating Liner was 100% +/- stronger than when the Hobas was new.
- Resinating Liners withstood up to 72,000 PSI before breaking, 3.5 times the pressure that liners from a leading global manufacturer of fiberglass liners could withstand.
The specific data and the photos in the original laboratory reports summarized in the sections below tell quite a story about the strength and durability of the Resinating’s EIPI Technology and Resinating Fiberglass Expansion Liners.
- There is clearly no need to Trench & Replace RCP or Hobas or any other type of pipe or manhole when it fails…Resinate it.
- Likewise, as the CIPP and SIPP sections of The Better Choice tab explain, EIPI Technology and Resinating Liners are far superior solutions when one is planning to rehabilitate failing pipes or manholes…Resinate them…it’s The Better Choice!
To avoid any confusion, you will see that the tests were conducted for AFE, Resinating LLC’s sister company, and in the name of Shumard Corp. Shumard is the legal corporate name of the company that does business as AFE, Associated Fiberglass Enterprises.
