Granite Acquires
Lametti & Sons

Granite Inliner LLC strengthened its
position in the water and wastewater
market by acquiring CIPP-related
assets and equipment of Lametti &
Sons Inc.
A Minnesota-based company
with expertise in cured-in-place pipe
(CIPP) rehabilitation and trenchless
renewal, Lametti is one of the original
certified installers of the Inliner CIPP
product - "an integral part of our
Inliner CIPP network for 23 years," said
Denise McClanahan, vice president of
Granite Inliner.
With the acquisition, Lametti will
become the Minnesota Area office
of Granite Inliner, one of the nation's
largest CIPP and trenchless pipe
providers. The Orleans, Ind., based
company offers sustainable pipeline
rehabilitation services for aging water,
wastewater and sewer infrastructure
needs, to both the public and private
sectors, with 17 offices and more than
800 employees in the U.S and Canada
In June 2018, Granite Inliner
became a wholly owned subsidiary
of Granite Construction Inc., the
Watsonville, Calif., full-suite provider
in the transportation, water infrastructure and mineral exploration markets.
"This is another step in the
execution of our strategic plan which
includes strong organic growth
through our core business lines, acquisitions in the water and wastewater
markets, and additional growth and
geographical diversification in our
vertically integrated business," said
James Roberts, president and CEO of
Granite Construction. *

Cortec Announces Breakthrough in Corrosion Protection of Pipelines
Cortec Corporation's U.S.-patented
CorroLogicVpCI Filler meets the
long-term protection needs of cased
pipeline crossings. Its special blend
of vapor phase corrosion inhibitors
protects in the liquid-phase, in the
vapor-phase, and at the air-water
interface. This multi-phase package
of corrosion inhibitors is designed to
migrate under disbonded coatings,
form a protective molecular layer in
void spaces, and inhibit corrosion
even in the presence of moisture.
CorroLogicVpCI Filler consists
of two components that form a
corrosion-inhibiting gel when injected into pipeline casings or other tubular void spaces. The liquid VpCI component
can be diluted onsite to the appropriate concentration.
Interestingly, the Cortec gel is also electrically conductive, allowing it to be used in concert with cathodic protection
(CP) to deliver the cathodic current to the carrier pipe. *

Insituform Introduces iPlus Infusion UV Felt CIPP
The new iPlus Infusion UV felt cured-in-place pipe (CIPP),
manufactured and installed by Insituform Technologies,
an Aegion company, is now commercially available.
Insituform patented UV CIPP in the 1980s as an alternative
to standard heat-cured liners. Some of the benefits of using
UV felt CIPP liners include the reduction or elimination of
styrene emissions, the ability to continuously monitor and
regulate the cure cycle, as well as a potential reduction in
the overall project footprint.
In addition, the UV felt CIPP is approximately 30 percent more cost effective when compared to the original UV glass
CIPP liners. This is achieved by utilizing a purely felt based tube while still complying with long-term design requirements.
iPlus Infusion utilizes an internal glass scrim layer to control pull-in stress loads and prevent liner damage. An integral
bladder system provides an extra layer of protection from groundwater infiltration into the piping systems. All materials
are designed to provide optimal translucency for complete cure. Meeting ASTM F1216 and F1743 standards, iPlus
Infusion provides a 50-plus-year, structural solution.
Liners can be saturated using a UV-cured polyester resin and/or a styrene-free vinyl ester resin on a specially
modified conveyer system or through a positive-head impregnation system. Temperature controls are not required
for storage or transport of iPlus Infusion UV felt CIPP and it has a storage life of at least six months, providing great
flexibility for future installation schedules.
The installation process is like that used for standard CIPP and uses standard UV equipment. Once the tube has
been pulled into the host pipe and partially inflated, the UV light train is inserted into the pipe, the tube is fully inflated
and then cured. The operator can inspect the liner before it is completely cured. Typical diameters are between
6 and 15 inches, with maximum install lengths of approximately 750 feet.
Insituform CIPP has been used for more than 45 years to protect pipelines from corrosion, restore structural
integrity, reduce infiltration, eliminate leaking joints, improve water quality and increase pipeline flow capacity. *
