Raven Lining Systems

Raven 760 High Performance Polymer Concrete (HPPC) is for use on concrete and masonry structures. Designed as a stand-alone re-surfacing product, the 760 may be used to repair voids, spalls or exposed aggregate up to ¼-inch thick per application. Additionally, self-priming Raven 760 may be used as an underlayment to reduce out-gassing for applications of various topcoats. The 760’s properties allow it to be efficiently sprayed or troweled to rehabilitate substrates providing a suitable surface for the application of a polymer topcoat in a variety of technologies. The product is supplied in a convenient self-contained, pre-measured easy-to-use kit and can be top coated in three hours after application with an extended 14-day recoat window. 800.324.2810,

AP/M Permaform

AP/M Permaform offers engineered solutions for the repair or replacement of badly deteriorated manholes, pipe and similar underground structures without excavating with our CentriPipe and Permaform systems. Cities, engineers and contractors have trusted our solutions for over 30 years. 800.662.6465,


3M Scotchkote Pipe Renewal Liner 2400 helps provide a cost effective solution to many of the problems common to potable water distribution systems. Its unique properties, combined with a trenchless spin cast application process, can efficiently coat the existing infrastructure restoring internal pipe diameters, increasing flow, improving efficiency, minimizing water loss and helping to prevent additional corrosion and build-up of scale and tuberculation. At prescribed lining thickness (caliper) and bury depths, Scotchkote Liner 2400 is projected to meet the material properties of ASTM F1216-09 after 50 years. Scotchkote Liner 2400 offers a 10 minute set time and 60 minute cure followed by a 30 minute flush. The ability to reinstate a water main within 90 minutes of lining allows for same day return to service. 888.745.4350,

SewperCoat Kerneos

SewperCoat is the ultimate mineral solution for the municipal wastewater industry to provide structural, corrosion-resistant protection against biogenic corrosion relative to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) found in wastewater environments. SewperCoat is the original 100 percent calcium aluminate backed with a no-nonsense 10-year labor and materials replacement warranty.

Standard Cement Materials

Use Reliner MSP cement, pure fused calcium aluminates and EPA verified epoxy coatings for rehabilitating existing manholes, horizontal sewerage pipes and bends, and corrugated metal pipe culverts (CMP) to 120 inches using high strength, “cast-in-place” cement liner technology. This repair system is comprised of a one-component structural cement mortar liner or the cement liner and a subsequent epoxy coating system. These materials work together as a non-destructive repair process to restore structural integrity, stop water infiltration and to protect the manhole against microbial induced corrosion and chemical attack. 888.278.1337,

Warren Environmental

Warren Environmental’s high build single coat system is comprised of 100 percent solids epoxy that is applied utilizing patented, solvent free application equipment. The system has superior corrosion resistance and adhesion to damp surfaces, while providing a great increase in the structural value of the manhole. 508.947.8539,

Parson Environmental Products

Eliminate the growth of bacteria that causes Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) to manholes and similar structures with ConBlock MIC. This is a liquid additive for Parson MH Liner and CA Liner 100 that is very effective against mold, fungi, algae and damaging bacteria. When added to the mix, the antimicrobial polymer that is formed keeps the surface free of excess bacteria and mold buildup. This treatment cures into a cross-linked polymer, bonding with the aggregate and cement to impact durable protection without migrating out of the concrete. 800.365.9023,

Infrastructure Repair Systems

Infrastructure Repair Systems Concrete and Manhole Rehab System comes in two trowel on applications. Chim-Coat is a scientifically formulated flexible epoxy that will expand and contract with changing temperatures. Infragard Top Coat is an epoxy topcoat for any concrete or brick surface can be applied onto damp or dry surfaces. Both products will seal and stop infiltration or ex-filtration. 877.327.4216,


SpectraShield is a patented, systematic layering of polymer resins designed to rehabilitate and protect wastewater structures such as manholes, wet wells or wastewater treatment plant facilities. A typical 7-foot-deep manhole can be completed in approximately one hour. SpectraShield has a 10-year warranty. 904.268.4591,
