GLIDE FOIL

PERFECT PROTECTION WHEN INSERTING THE LINER

Before inserting the iMPREGLiner into the old pipe, the glide foil is initially moved into the base.

The glide foil fulfills several important tasks during the liner installation. Obstructions to the work to be carried out are removed using robot technology. Nevertheless, sharp edges can damage the liner, which leads to saponification appearing due to water contact at the laminate and the liner has leaks.

The glide foil that is moved into the base of the old pipe prevents such damage and is thus indispensable for ensuring quality.

The glide foil offered by iMPREG has low friction, as a result of which the insertion forces when inserting the liner are reduced considerably.

Before inserting large and heavy liners, additional lubricant can be applied between the liner and the glide foil in order to reduce the insertion forces further.
