In 2016, Induracoat again provided lining services for The City of Victoria on Padora Avenue. this line services Victoria City Hall, a local TV station (CTV Vancouver Island) and a centrally located hotel (the Rialto).
The installation of pipe renewal lineracted as a semi-structural liner to ensure that these pipes were sound before investing money in further street surface upgrades.
The City of Victoria was preparing to upgrade the surface streetscape along Pandora St. and was eager to rehabilitate the 1908 water main prior to starting street refurbishment. This extremely busy downtown street is adjacent to Victoria City Hall and centered in Victoria's tourist area.
Full cut replacement would have closed traffic for at least a month, causing significant traffic chaos. Induracoat was able to rehabilitate the water main in three days, while leaving one lane open to traffic."

Pipe Age/History: 1908
Pipe Material: Cast Iron
Pipe Diameter: 150mm (6 inches)
Pipe Length: 161 meters
Our challenge was to improve the water quality, increase C Factor and ensure the structural integrity.
Competing Solution: Total Pipe Replacement
Two linings of pipe renewal liner at 1.75mm each, for a total thickness of 3.5mm, constituting a structural lining.
VersaFlex AquaVers 405 is a superior coating material designed specifically for industrial applications receiving constant or intermittent attack from contained materials, subsurface hydrostatic pressure, most corrosive substances and abrasive action. AquaVers 405 is flexible, accommodating to movement of the substrate, yet strong enough to remain intact under all conditions except major structural dislocations. With or […]
