LEARN ABOUT EPOXYTEC’S ECAN PROGRAM
Who is ECAN designed for?
ECAN is designed for water & wastewater applicators looking to enhance their business through quality products and high standards of excellence.
By partnering with Epoxytec, contractors are joining a pre-qualified group of applicators who are critical to rehabilitating and protecting water and wastewater assets.
Designed for engineers who drive specifications requiring high-quality applicators, from which the ECAN program helps ensure standards of quality and acceptance at bid time, using industry standards for application and quality products designed specifically for the water & wastewater environment.
What are the benefits of joining ECAN?
- Bid priority options for specifications calling for ECAN certified contractors
- In-depth product knowledge about structural liners and their product attributes
- Hands-on training from industry experts on application procedures, including knowing when and where to use structural epoxies
- Collaboration with Epoxytec
- Acceptance into a prequalified certified applicator network
What products are included in ECAN certification?
ECAN certification is designed to include extensive education on Epoxytec’s structural liners. Certification options include:
- CPP Trowel-Liner Certification
- Dual Certification including CPP Trowel-Liner & CPP Sprayliner
The cure characteristics of both CPP Trowel-Liner and CPP Sprayliner are equivalent in that both offer the qualities necessary to combat aggressive wastewater environments while sealing against Inflow and Infiltration (I&I). However, the application methods are the distinguishing factor: CPP Sprayliner allows for a spray application using a heated plural component spray system rather than a trowel-application method.
ECAN applicators will have the option to learn about one or both products depending on the path they choose.
How does an applicator become ECAN certified?
Training is required to join Epoxytec’s exclusive network. Training depends on the type of certification the individual selects. There are two paths available:
CPP Trowel-Liner Certification
- Watch a short CPP Trowel-Liner training video
- Submit a test associated with the training video
Dual Certification (including CPP Trowel-Liner & CPP Sprayliner Certification)
- Register and attend an Epoxytec one-day hands-on training and live demo in North Kansas City, MO. Training typically occurs once monthly
How long is ECAN certification valid for?
ECAN certification is valid for two years. Renewal is contingent upon recertification and the consistency of trained foremen/supervisors within the certified company.
How is ECAN certification renewed?
A short recertification process will renew an applicator’s certification.
What kind of equipment is necessary/required?
Other than basic power mixing tools and hand application tools, no specialized equipment is necessary to become CPP Trowel-Liner certified.
Heated plural component equipment is necessary to utilize CPP Sprayliner. Epoxytec professionals will guide contractors in understanding the options available, including purchasing or renting equipment and the possibility of retrofitting currently owned equipment.
Does ECAN have any network limitations?
Epoxytec’s certifications are not exclusively-licensed agreements; no contracts are required.
Epoxytec’s goal is to add a solution option to contractors’ portfolio of products. Epoxytec understands that some projects are not within the scope of Epoxytec’s solutions or system recommendations. Therefore, Epoxytec does not require exclusivity.
Additionally, contractors are not constrained by any geographic borders.
Are there any requirements that must be followed once certified?
It is the responsibility of the certified contractor to ensure that during the application of Epoxytec products, industry standards are followed.
Trained foremen/supervisors are expected to be actively available and present on Epoxytec-related job sites. Should the applicator be in a position where none of the previously trained employees are available for a project, it is the applicator’s responsibility to get crew members retrained and certified by Epoxytec.
Should the new certified foreman/supervisor not be available for training, the certification will be inactive until retraining/replacement takes place.
Are product warranties available for ECAN contractors?
Warranty eligibility is exclusive to certified contractors for select applications with contractor commitment. Limitations apply.
