The 3M Scotchkote 2400 was able to deliver an economical solution.In 2014 Induracoat continued to provide The City of Victoria with further linging solutions.

“The water main at this location runs directly under the curb where the grass and treed boulevard meets the road. Replacement would have meant weeks of traffic disruption to the commercial and residential neighbors and very likely the loss of several trees. 

The area has experienced a higher rate of breaks and the City was seeking a non-disruptive solution to enhance the mains structural integrity. Scotchkote 2400 was able to deliver an economical solution.”
