Following Tomahawk cleaning and preparation, any lining technology can be applied to the pipe wall, including CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) or SIPP (sprayed-in-place pipe) technologies. The right lining technology choice depends on the condition of the pipe.
Tomahawk has evolved into a full pipe rehab solution by adding a proprietary airborne lining technology. This application is a fast, low cost, non-structural, AWWA Class I barrier coat to improve drinking water quality and flow while extending the pipe's service life by decades. The lining process uses the same airstream as cleaning (vac truck), thus requiring minimal changeover. The airborne lining process is capable of lining 4"(100mm), 6"(150mm) and 8"(200mm) diameter pipes which represents approximately 75% distrubution pipes in North America.
