Codes and Compliance

At IPT we pride ourselves with maintaining the quality of our products and maintain the integrity of the codes that govern our industry.

Many suppliers skirt around the codes which are meant to protect our industry and our customers. By maintaining our QC programs at our plant you can be assured the products AND technology you are using are tested and meet the specific codes and ASTM standards.

Our products and technologies meet the full listing requirements of structural liners and are tested to the specific testing protocols in ASTM 1216 which the plumbing code recognizes.

IPT is proud to be the only fully listed CIPP drain lining product in Canada.

Are You Aware That:

  1. Coating drains instead of lining them is not to code? Drain coating technology was turned down at the code level for the most part because of uncontrolled installations and surface prep. Many suppliers claim “code compliance” a term that does not exist nor is it recognized. For coatings to work the surface must be prepped properly and in many cases, contractors are not equipped to prepare the surface adequately to meet NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) standards.
  2. The term “semi-structural” is actually a term used in chemistry and or modelling financial economies? As far as a term used to explain something that is structural does not exist nor is it recognized in the industry.
  3. UV curing is not covered by ASTM 1216 which is the standard recognized by the plumbing code? UV is covered by ASTM 2019 which is specific for fibre glass UV cured liners. Some suppliers have attempted to list their UV products under the current code which can be very misleading. The tensile and flexural listed in F2019 are very high and at times suppliers can not meet these high standards so they claim they can meet 1216.
  4. All contractors that transport volumes of resin including wet outliner should consult with their local authorities to check hazmat requirements? In addition to DOT placard requirements as some products are considered dangerous goods.
  5. You should be aware of proper TRS handling procedures? Check with your supplier for the proper TDS for the products they ship you as many products require any employee that uses and or comes into contact with the product to be specially trained on handling procedures.

IPT is standing guard and maintaining the integrity of the small diameter CIPP industry make sure your supplier is doing the same.
