DESCRIPTION: Rapid Set® PIPE LINER is made with advanced nano-ceramic technology, providing a low-shrink, sulfate-resistant, durable repair material. PIPE LINER is a pre-blended, polymer-modified hydraulic structural cement mortar lining specially designed and formulated for structural rehabilitation of pipes in situ. PIPE LINER is shear-thinning for easy pumping and thixotropic to reduce dropout or sag.
USES: PIPE LINER is a specially formulated high performance cement mortar for re-lining of damaged sewers, storm drains, wastewater pipes and culverts, providing a structural cementitious liner for infrastructure rehabilitation.
APPLICATIONS: PIPE LINER is designed to be applied pneumatically or by hand for smaller applications.
SURFACE PREPARATION: For repairs, application surface must be clean, sound and free from any materials that may inhibit bond, such as oil, asphalt, curing compound, acid, dirt and loose debris. Roughen surface and remove all unsound material. Apply PIPE LINER to a surface that is thoroughly saturated with no standing water.
MIXING: The use of a power driven mechanical mixer, such as a mortar mixer or a drill mounted mixer, is highly recommended. Use potable water. PIPE LINER may be mixed with 4 to 4.5 quarts (3.8 L to 4.2 L) of water per 55-lb (25-kg) bag. Use less water to achieve higher strengths and increased adhesion. Mix for one to three minutes to achieve a lump-free, uniform consistency. Do not retemper.
PLACEMENT: PIPE LINER may be placed using traditional construction methods. Organize work so that all personnel and equipment are ready before placement. Place, consolidate and screed quickly to allow for maximum finishing time. Do not wait for bleed water; apply final finish as soon as possible. PIPE LINER may be troweled, floated or broom finished. Do not install on frozen surfaces. To extend working time, use Rapid Set® SET Control® retarding admixture from the Rapid Set® Concrete Pharmacy® or cold mix water. PIPE LINER may be applied in temperatures ranging from 45°F to 90°F (7°C to 32°C).
COLD WEATHER: Environmental and material temperatures below 70°F (21°C) may delay setting time and reduce the rate of strength gain. Lower temperatures will have a more pronounced effect. Thinner sections will be more significantly affected. To compensate for cold temperatures, keep material warm, use heated mix water, and follow ACI 306 Procedures for Cold Weather Concreting.
WARM WEATHER: Environmental and material temperatures above 70°F (21°C) may speed setting time and increase the rate of strength gain. Higher temperatures will have a more pronounced effect. To compensate for warm temperatures, keep material cool, use chilled mix water, and follow ACI 305 Procedures for Hot Weather Concreting. The use of SET Control retarding admixture from the Concrete Pharmacy will help offset the effects of high temperatures.
YIELD & PACKAGING: Rapid Set® PIPE LINER is available in 55-lb (25-kg) 3-ply polyethylene lined bags. One 55-lb (25-kg) bag of PIPE LINER will yield approximately 0.5 ft3.
SHELF LIFE: PIPE LINER has a shelf life of 12 months when stored properly in a dry location, protected from moisture, out of direct sunlight, and in an undamaged package.
USER RESPONSIBILITY: Before using CTS products, read current technical data sheets, bulletins, product labels and safety data sheets at www.CTScement.com. It is the user’s responsibility to review instructions and warnings for any CTS products prior to use.
WARNING: DO NOT BREATHE DUST. AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN AND EYES. Use material in well-ventilated areas only. Exposure to cement dust may irritate eyes, nose, throat, and the upper respiratory system/lungs. Silica exposure by inhalation may result in the development of lung injuries and pulmonary diseases, including silicosis and lung cancer. Seek medical treatment if you experience difficulty breathing while using this product. The use of a NIOSH/MSHA-approved respirator (P-, N- or R-95) is recommended to minimize inhalation of cement dust. Eat and drink only in dust-free areas to avoid ingesting cement dust. Skin contact with dry material or wet mixtures may result in bodily injury ranging from moderate irritation and thickening/cracking of skin to severe skin damage from chemical burns. If irritation or burning occurs, seek medical treatment. Protect eyes with goggles or safety glasses with side shields. Cover skin with protective clothing. Use chemical resistant gloves and waterproof boots. In case of skin contact with cement dust, immediately wash off dust with soap and water to avoid skin damage. In case of skin contact with wet concrete, wash exposed skin areas with cold running water as soon as possible. In case of eye contact with cement dust, flush immediately and repeatedly with clean water, and consult a physician. If wet concrete splashes into eyes, rinse eyes with clean water for at least 15 minutes and go to the hospital for further treatment.
