How is a solution developed for the US Navy helping to repair gas risers in multi-occupancy buildings? Our new video tells the full story.

Our video below explains how this simple, same-day innovation is set to revolutionise gas pipe repairs.

Fixing leaks from aging pipework in flats and high-rise buildings is a difficult, time-consuming and costly business.

Corrosion causes leaks in gas risers and replacing them often involves erecting scaffolding, installing new pipes on the outside of buildings and weeks of potential disruption for customers.

However, a method of lining the inside of vertical pipes originally developed for use on US Navy ships is set to make all this a thing of the past.

By using an epoxy mulch to seal the leaks, pipes can be repaired instead of replaced, with no drilling of walls, no scaffolding – and in a matter of hours rather than weeks.
