Now our customers can utilize URETEK Holdings as their one-stop shop for all their underground structure rehabilitation and repair needs.
Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) March 02, 2015
URETEK Holdings, a soil stabilization and infrastructure rehabilitation company, announced today that it is now a licensed provider of AP/M Permaform solutions, including PERMACAST® structural liners, COR GARD® coatings and CentriPipe systems for repair and trenchless replacement of underground structures.
AP/M Permaform is the developer and patent holder of several pipe and manhole lining and corrosion reduction methods that are used to rehabilitate and extend the useful life of aging infrastructure. Through the license agreement with AP/M Permaform, URETEK Holdings can now install AP/M Permaform solutions including PERMACAST® structural liners, COR GARD® coatings and CentriPipe systems for repair and trenchless rehabilitation of underground structures.
URETEK will combine these products with its soil stabilization process to provide a comprehensive trenchless infrastructure rehabilitation service. URETEK stabilizes soils around a pipe or manhole by injecting a high density geopolymer around the structure, stabilizing the soils and filling present voids. This process helps minimize any structural movement caused by loose support soils or moving water, while also sealing the structure against water intrusion or leakage.
“AP/M Permaform’s solutions are the perfect complement to URETEK Holdings’ products and service offerings for our customers with underground structures. In addition to URETEK’s Deep Injection℠ process, we are confident that AP/M Permaform's solutions will offer added convenience to many of our customers across the country,” said Kathleen Shanahan, the Chief Executive Officer at URETEK Holdings.
PERMACAST structural liners are made of specially formulated fiber-reinforced cements engineered for underground sewer structures. COR GARD coatings are used for corrosion protection in sewer systems and are fully compatible with the PERMACAST cementitious materials. When installed and cured together, they form a composite of concrete and epoxy that seals, reinforces, and protects underground structures.
“Adding AP/M Permaform’s solutions to our current product and service offerings just made sense, as we realized early on that URETEK was servicing the same customers as AP/M Permaform,” said Richard Kelecy, URETEK’s Chief Operating Officer. “Oftentimes, our customers engage us to seal and void fill the outside of underground structures and another company to rehabilitate the inside. Now our customers can utilize URETEK Holdings as their one-stop shop for all their underground structure rehabilitation and repair needs.”
The CentriPipe system is designed for corrosion protection and complete structural renewal of storm and sanitary sewer pipe between 30" to 120"in diameter. CentriPipe creates a new, structurally sound concrete pipe inside the old one. This new pipe is 100% environmentally sound, waterproof, and fully sealed from end to end. It provides highly effective corrosion protection that can double the life span of the pipe, at a significant savings over other replacement options.
URETEK Holdings will launch the AP/M Permaform solutions services immediately in the Florida market and then expand to all 31 of URETEK’s state territories.
