Epoxytec Uroflex – Successfully Servicing Sewers

A prime example of quality industry – specific formulations provided by Epoxytec is a proprietary hybrid blending of epoxy and urethane. The result is a potent chemical combination providing the superior adhesive qualities and structural strength of epoxies as well as the flexibility and fluidity associated with urethanes. Once applied, Uroflex establishes a barrier liner capable of resisting debilitating chemical deconstruction and corrosion while simultaneously supplying increased impact resistance and structural strength. 

The end result of a Uroflex application is a sewer system with enhanced structural integrity, thus sealing and protecting the concrete or steel from ultra high H2S and other types of corrosion. Coated systems are capable of resisting the deterioration that results, over time, from the shifting of concrete or steel sub-strata structures. Accompanying the enhanced performance and reliability comes a durability that extends the service life cycle of sewer systems beyond established industry expectations. Uroflex is a true hybrid among the pack. Having a hybrid advantage allows for better specification designing by controlling the advantages found in hybrid coating designs.
This industry has unfortunately experienced many problems that in some cases led to failures because of generalized designing and irresponsible product submittals with inferior broad-ranged products not designed for sewer. The solution is specifying sewer-specific coatings, and none is better than a proven hybrid coating to resist corrosive environments and possessing the proper performance properties required in that environment. Uroflex is that hybrid solution – it is unique, specific, and proven.
A Case In Point: Miami-Dade Water & Sewer
Current Uroflex applications administered under Epoxytec’s expert supervision exist across a wide range of states and regions. Included in this is over 2,000,000 square feet of sewer systems in Miami-Dade alone, where this custom formulation has proven its reliability and durability since 1990. A noteworthy inspection conducted in the Fall of 2000 by the highly regarded engineering firm of Hazen & Sawyer attests to the effectiveness and reliability of Uroflex applications in UNOX tanks (closed anaerobic digesters), one of the harshest industrial environments in existence. These closed oxygenation trains breed microbial attack (and its sulfuric byproduct) and other types corrosion, resulting from high heat chemical gases reacting to agitated erosion activities and periodic oxygen injections. In an exceedingly more hostile and debilitating environment than most, Uroflex proves its quality every single day.
Ensuring a Solid Return on Investment
Reliability and durability are obvious performance-related benefits of applying Uroflex in restorative or maintenance situations. The hidden benefit in Uroflex applications is financial. Although actual numbers may vary, typical industry costs for coating applications and operations account for only a small percentage (4% on average) of most capital project or maintenance budgets. When structural deterioration or contamination due to corrosion or other invasive conditions occurs, the costs to repair sewer systems can easily run into millions of dollars. Funds for such extensive repairs can be hard to come by, even in times of relative economic stability. The proper application of Uroflex linings, performed under the expert guidance of our certified technicians and applicators, sets up a strong protective shield, preventing structural deterioration and system failure. The application of Uroflex on sewer system structures gainfully prolongs the service life cycle of such systems. Considering that such applications can cost as little as 4% of most representative repair estimates, it is easy to see that the value of a designed preventive maintenance solution specifying Uroflex should be considered to proactively prevent costly structural failures from happening. Uroflex is a product offering a solid return on investment as well as significant long-term savings.
