Development of Pipe Coating, Paving, & Lining Specifications

Grants and Contracts Details


Kentucky's current policies indicated that certain pipe installations would require some type of protective coating be installed on the pipe to address a variety of conditions, such as: corrosion, abrasion, and hydraulic resistance. Currently there are no documented performance guidelines for these types of materials in Kentucky. Questions which are asked dealing with the use of pipe coating and paving are: should land use determine the type of coating, which materials are best, and is there an improvement in performance by utilizing these materials. This research effort will address these concerns and develop appropriate guidelines for their use. This will insure the most cost effective use of these materials while maintaining the performance desired.
