Bluelight® LED is a Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) lining system for laterals and small wastewater pipes 4” to 10” in diameter. While traditional CIPP lining systems use epoxy resins cured with steam, hot water or ambient air, the Bluelight System uses LED light to cure the liner. The Bluelight system is can be installed in lengths of up to 150' and in pipes with bends up to 90 degrees.
The curing is completed by a set of LED's operating in the wavelength of blue light (450 nm). The liner used with the Bluelight system is a flexible felt with a polyurethane (PU) coating and the resin is a styrene-free vinyl-ester with a patented photo-initiator that reacts only in the wavelength of the light-head's LED's. The primary advantage of the Bluelight LED lining system is the speed at which it cures - up to 5 times faster than conventional curing methods.
More than 50,000 successful installations worldwide make Bluelight® LED a proven rehabilitation technology. For additional information about Bluelight LED technology, visit the Bluelight website.
