Standard Practice for Sectional Repair of Existing Gravity Flow, Non-Pressure Pipelines and Conduits by Pushed or Pulled-In-Place Installation of Cured-In-Place Thermosetting Resin Pipe (CIPP)

Significance and Use

4.1 This practice is for use by designers and specifiers, regulatory agencies, owners, and inspection organizations who are involved in the rehabilitation of gravity flow, non-pressure pipes through the use of a resin-saturated liner installed within a section of damaged or leaking existing pipe. As for any practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions.


1.1 This practice describes the procedures for the sectional repair of gravity flow, non-pressure pipelines and conduits 3 in. to 60 in. (75 mm to 1500 mm) diameter by the installation of a resin-saturated liner which is placed onto or wrapped around a carrier device, pushed or pulled into an existing pipeline or conduit and expanded against the interior of the host pipe or conduit with air pressure. The resin is cured under ambient conditions, by photoinitiated reaction or with the application of heat. When cured, the finished sectional repair will be tight-fitting across its installed length. This repair process is used in a variety of gravity flow, non-pressure applications such as sanitary sewers, storm sewers, drains, electrical conduits and ventilation systems.

1.2 Units—The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
