When you buy from us you’re buying a product which is as environmentally friendly as possible. We achieve this by continuously setting goals for reducing emissions and environmental load in the entire chain from raw material to finished, installed product.
The fact that manufacturing of any form of product affects the environment in some way is unavoidable. For this reason, our mission is as far as possible to streamline production and reduce total emissions from our products.
Inpipe’s products consist of fibreglass, polyester and foils.
We make our liners as thin and light as possible – this leads to lower consumption of materials and smaller emissions from manufacture and transports. We constantly seek ways to reduce our consumption of chemicals in our production, or replace them with more environmentally friendly products.
- Fibreglass: Is manufactured from a glass type in which the use of flux has been reduced, in order to reduce environmentally hazardous emissions.
- Polyester: Used in liquid form. Polyester must contain a solvent, often styrene. In our production, we have continuously reduced the use and emissions of solvents.
- Products based on polyester are entirely free from Bisphenol A.
- Foils: The plastic foils used in the product are, as far as possible, manufactured from plastics that can be recycled in some way with minimal hazardous emissions.
As far as possible, we strive to coordinate all of our transports, both when purchasing materials and during delivery of products to the customer, in order to reduce environmental loads. Purchasing of raw materials is carried out as far as possible in large quantities.
The installed product
When our product has been installed, the polyester is hardened using UV light. This means that the styrene in the polyester is bound and consumed. A hardened product contains less than 2% residual styrene. The emissions are minimal. Hardening with UV light is very energy-efficient compared to hardening using steam or hot water.
