OUR CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY
FORMADRAIN is a true no-dig technology. It is a steam-cured, fiberglass and epoxy system that is pulled in place or pushed in place through existing pipes. This means it is used to repair underground pipes without digging. With no excavation, it can perform lateral repairs, lateral-main-connection (LMC®) repairs, spot repairs, and process piping repairs.
Formapox 101 is our standard FORMADRAIN® lateral liner, which is made from a watertight, thin, yet extremely strong composite material and our specially formulated resin. The liner is bright blue in colour.
Formapox 101 is the mainstay of our pushed- or pulled-in-place, steam-cured, fiberglass and epoxy underground pipe repair system. As with all our epoxies, we can line sizes going from 2 to 48 inches (50 to 1,200 mm) in pipe diameter. The repair is so thin that pipes sustain their original flow capacities, even with a liner installed in such small diameters.
Diameter upsizes are no match for Formapox 101 either. They are lined without having to determine where the transition is in the pipe.
Offering the lowest material cost on the market, the Formapox 101 liner is cured with steam provided by a 700,000 BTU steam unit built to accommodate most repair sizes. It handles a 4-hour working time, which makes preparation much easier for your crew. Your team will never have to rush things or cut corners ever again. The steam will cure every single watertight repair within 45 minutes to 90 minutes depending on pipe size.

Our Formapox 301 industrial liner was created for most industrial applications. It has been designed for extreme conditions, such as strong acids (e.g., sulphuric acid), strong bases (e.g., caustics), and strong solvents (e.g., petroleum applications). The liner is gray once installed.
Formapox 301 is used for all types of repairs, including spot repairs or full-length pipe renewal. Repair diameters range from 2 inches (50 mm) to 48 inches (1,200 mm).
It has the same bidirectional weave fiberglass as the Formapox 101 liner, but it has been developed to withstand harsh chemicals. During the steam curing of the liner, a high level of cross-linking of the Formapox 301 resin occurs, producing a chemically stronger liner which can be used at elevated temperatures up to 250°F /120°C.
For optimal chemical resistance, a 2-hour steam cure is required to produce a chemically and mechanically superior repair that is thin—all while being extremely strong and watertight.
Bright green in colour, our Durapox liners have 60 days of open time.
Our Durapox liners now make it possible for installers to order the exact liner they need directly from us. Once we get the order, we prep it and ship it out to them. No need for messy wet-outs. No need for large spaces for prepping. It’s all hassle-free with FORMADRAIN.
Our Durapox steam-cured epoxy liner can sit 60 days without curing. It can be installed on the installer’s schedule, not the working time of the liner. Once the Durapox liner is inserted, it is steam cured in 60 to 120 minutes. The entire job can take just 4-5 hours.VIEW MORE VIDEOS
AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SOLUTION
FORMADRAIN is good for your customers, good for your business, and good for the environment. It is an all-around safe and harmless alternative to traditional methods.
The epoxy resins are entirely free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There are no strong odors, which means no health concerns for installers or for inhabitants of the installation site.
NONDISRUPTIVE TO THE ENVIRONMENT
FORMADRAIN is a true no-dig system, which eliminates the need to demolish pavement, trees, or landscaping. The installation of FORMADRAIN liners does not create dust or excessive noise. It is also risk free for other buried infrastructure.
Because no earthmoving equipment is needed with the FORMADRAIN no-dig system and the complete installation takes only 3-4 hours, fuel consumption to complete a lining installation is minimal.
