NovaForm™ PVC Liner

A consistent, durable and cost-efficient PVC liner for sewer and culvert rehabilitation.

  • Factory-made, quality-controlled and tested to stringent ASTM standards
  • Highly-resistant to chemicals and offers excellent abrasion- and scratch-resistance properties
  • Available from 6" – 30" (150mm – 750mm)


The need for a durable and cost-efficient pipe rehabilitation solution has never been more paramount. The engineers at IPEX recognized this need and have responded with NovaForm PVC Liner, a product that brings the lasting benefits of factory-made PVC pipe to the North American trenchless pipe rehabilitation industry.



Material PVC

Size Range 6" – 30" (150mm – 750mm)

Workmanship, finish, and appearance The formed pipe shall be homogeneous throughout and free from visible cracks, holes, foreign inclusions, or other defects.

The pipe shall be as uniform as commercially possible in colour, opacity, density and other physical properties.

Product Marking Pipe shall be clearly marked as follows at intervals of 5ft. (1.5m) or less:

• Manufacturer’s name or trademark and code • Nominal outside diameter • The PVC cell classification, for example “12334”

• The legend “DR XX FOLDED PVC PIPE”

• The designation “Specification ASTM F1504”

• Length marker and liner distance label, for example “100ft” (“30.5m”)



The full length of the PVC pipe is coiled onto a reel in a continuous length for storage and shipment. The minimum diameter of the reel drum or core shall be 48in (1,219mm). Quality Assurance When the product is marked with ASTM F1504 designation, the manufacturer affirms that the product was manufactured, inspected, sampled and tested in accordance with the specification and has been found to meet the requirement of it.


This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, flattening resistance, impact resistance, pipe stiffness, extrusion quality, marking and packaging.

Case Studies

A Wise Choice Made 30 Years Ago

In the early 1980s, decision makers in charge of the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion infrastructures had a sense of vision and made a responsible choice for the lasting benefit of the tax payers. A vision that would ensure durable infrastructures for over 30 years. The technical services, in cooperation with the public works department, decided a major shift for products to be used in potable water distribution applications. Since then PVC has become ``The Material of Choice`` made by the City to meet the overall needs, taking into account the existing soil conditions throughout the territory.
