Pitch fibre pipes are made from wood cellulose impregnated with inert coal tar pitch.
A damaged pipe can be relined using a polyester and felt lining which is applied internally and covers any cracks or small holes in the pitch fibre pipe. If this is not a suitable approach we may also consider patch lining, where we use a patch to cover a crack or hole. In some instances, if a pipe has more serious damage we may consider Brawloliner. This is a seamless elastic tube which can be used to line pipework that is under intense pressure and perhaps has more joints and corners to contend with.
