Trelleborg’s pipe seals operation has launched a new online tool to enable pipe rehabilitation contractors to calculate the precise amount of resin and hardener needed to build a leak-free, hassle-free network of pipes. The Resin Calculator Tool equips contractors with the exact volume and weight of material required to repair pipes to the optimum performance, enabling more precise spending on materials whilst preventing additional repair work from incorrect calculations.
The tool can be used to determine the precise amounts of resin and hardener required for cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining technology. Contractors simply input material parameters such as the liner type, type of resin system used, pipe diameter, wall thickness, length of liner and preferred unit of measurement. The online tool then instantly calculates the precise amount of resin and hardener mix required in both volumetric and gravimetric sizes.
