Based on ISO 11295:2017 Primus Line® is considered an independent pressure pipe liner.
The liner is designed as a new pipe inside the existing pipe. This is rooted in its unique three-layered composition which unites robustness against mechanical forces and a high chemical resistance with a wall thickness of only 6 to 8 millimeters.
Its outer layer of polyethylene (PE) protects the liner from external effects during transport and abrasion during installation.
Depending on the application, the inner layer consists of PE or thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). It protects the liner from the corrosive effect fluid and gaseous media can have and makes it a highly effective corrosion barrier towards the rehabilitated host pipe.
Due to its aramid reinforcement between the inner and outer layer, the liner by Primus Line is structurally self-supporting. Time-consuming glueing to the host pipe is completely unnecessary and the liner is able to accommodate the operating pressure entirely on its own. Fundamentally, this enables the operation of Primus Line® fully independently from any existing pipelines.
Building on this concept the Primus Line F-Liner was developed. It is specifically optimized towards this field of application and distinguishes itself with its even more flexible material.
