RESIN INFUSED PIPES FOR THE REPAIR OF CHRISTCHURCH'S EARTHQUAKE DAMAGED INFRASTRUCTURE

In what was believed to be a world first, Fibreglass Innovations Ltd was commissioned by McConnell Dowell to use resin infusion technology to repair two major cracks had opened up in a 1.3m diameter pipe buried metres below ground.
They delivered an exact resin to glass ratio over the entire 20mm epoxy laminate – then fitted the giant sleeves into place. A perfect fit, and a perfect cost efficient solution to what would have otherwise been a cost prohibitive repair.
