Canada: A World Leader in Structural Lining of Water Mains

For the past 20 years, I have been lucky enough to participate actively in the development and commercialization of a new approach to re-building aging water mains. Largely used for the rehabilitation of sewer pipes, there was no equivalent cured-in-place pip (CIPP) technology for drinking water in the late 90’s.

The challenge to develop a product to rehabilitate a pressurized conduit that transports the life-essential resource was colossal. But, for the chemist that I am, it represented a most stimulating project. Our boss at the time, who is still president of Sanexen, had seen an incredible business opportunity. Now we had to come up with a product that works.
