Pipe Restoration Technologies Awarded Canadian Patent

Patent Is for Cleaning and Placement of Internal Barrier Coating and Leak Sealing Process

August 19, 2013
LAS VEGAS — Pipe Restoration Technologies LLC announced that it has been awarded a Canadian patent, Brevet Canadien #2707023, by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) for its ePIPE® in-place pipe restoration technology.

Pipe Restoration Technologies said this patent is focused on methods and systems of the ePIPE technology that provides for an abrasive cleaning method and the placement of an internal barrier coating and leak sealing process which is applied internally in pipes while the pipes remain in-place, preventing leaks without having to use conventional repair and repiping methods. This patent covers pipes used to carry potable water, natural gas, fire sprinkler systems, and drains.

“This patent, added to our existing and evolving portfolio of patents and IP [intellectual property] supports the ongoing enhancements to our technology platform both nationally and internationally,” said Larry Gillanders, CEO.

In the United States and Canada, Pipe Restoration Technologies licenses its ePIPE technology through ACE DuraFlo Systems LLC.

ePIPE service providers are located in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Russia. For more information, visit
