Trenchless technology is rapidly entering the North American marketplace as demand creates an increasing need for cost-effective pipe renovation. One of these technologies is Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP). Generally, these lining processes consist of a resin impregnated flexible tube, inserted into the existing pipeline by winch, air pressure or hydrostatic head, and cured to final structural properties through the application of heat. CIPP technology will be reviewed and its position in the marketplace discussed. Factors affecting selection of this type of process will be assessed. Performance criteria and installation requirements will also be discussed.
