Extending the life of sewer assets

Protecting Ageing Infrastructure

Justin Roth \ October 18, 2018

Calix understands the importance of providing a complete repair and protection package for the entire sewer network including manholes, wet wells, and sewage treatment plants’ inlet works. Calix innovates in chemicals to offer the right sewer network, depending on the condition of the asset and each site’s specific requirements.

Calix has used Calcium Aluminate Cement (CAC) to repair failed concrete sewer assets in Tamworth Regional Council and Fraser Coast Regional Council. The scope of works included re-grouting and profiling of significantly corroded manholes and pumping stations with Calcium Aluminate (CAC) from specialty chemical company BASF.

Calix’s difference comes from the topcoat finish of PROTECTA-Mag that can be added onto the applied CAC layer, thus providing long-lasting corrosion protection of the assets.
