New Specification for Manufactured In-Place Composite Pipe (MICP) Inside Pipelines

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers spray-applied lining materials and reinforcement materials for the manufactured in-place composite pipe (MICP) rehabilitation of pressure and non-pressure pipelines and conduits with 42-144 in. (1066-3658 mm) diameter constructed of metallic and non-metallic materials. This MICP rehabilitation process can be used in a variety of applications such as potable water, sewer, gas, and petroleum pipelines. This specification is suited for the evaluation and testing of materials used in the rehabilitation of existing pipelines by the installation and cure of MICP composite linings. 1.2 This specification can also be extended to cover manholes, wet wells, storage tanks, and other similar structures where MICP lining is applicable. 1.3 Units--The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. NOTE 1Currently, there is no International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard covering the primary subject matter of this specification. 1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 8, of this specification: 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


MICP; SIPP; spray applied linings; linings; pipe rehabilitation; pipeline renewal; pipeline remediation; barrier coating; non-structural lining; structural linings; pressure pipe lining; pressure pipe renewal; pressure pipe rehabilitation; polymeric liner; rehabilitation; carbon fiber reinforced pipe; spray in place pipe; spray lining; semi-structural linings; trenchless technology; water main renewal; water pipeline rehabilitation; sewer pipe rehabilitation; force mains; natural gas pipelines


The rationale of this standard is to provide design and consulting engineers, utility and pipeline owners, and municipalities, as well as pipeline contractors, a specification pursuant to the materials, methodologies, and testing requirements for renewal of pipelines using manufactured in-place pipe (MICP). Furthermore, there are no current specification standards for spray applied linings using in-situ-appointed continuous reinforcement to manufacture remotely semi-structural and fully structural composite linings inside pipelines.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
