Perma-Liner Industries LLC, the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, introduced a new, eco-friendly product. Perma-Liner Vinyl Hybrid Resin is the only vinyl hybrid designed with zero styrene, extremely low VOCs and as a hybrid vinyl ester with high-rigid polymer backbone.
“Our newest resin, the vinyl hybrid, has an array of benefits that are attractive to those looking for reduced labor costs, fast cure times and more,” said Rishi Vasudeva, business excellence manager at Perma-Liner. “This resin is formulated with zero styrene – a potentially harmful substance per OSHA – allowing it to be used in areas that would previously need to be evacuated due to the presence of styrene.”
The vinyl hybrid resin has a standard pot life of more than eight hours and uses an easy initiator with 1 percent cumyl hydroperoxide (CHP) by weight, making it inexpensive, easy and effective.
