Proprietary Anti-Microbial Technology Inhibits Galvanic and Microbiological Corrosion
SIGMA is proud to highlight the availability of V-Bio ® Enhanced Polyethylene Encasement. As part of an exclusive agreement with DIPRA, SIGMA is one of only six suppliers nationally with distribution rights to this product.
V-Bio ® enhances SIGMA’s existing Extended Products, which also features 4-mil cross laminated and regular 8-mil polyethylene encasement products. V-Bio ® meets the spec required by engineers and many municipalities where volatile elements and soil conditions create a corrosion issue. It is typically used in major metropolitan areas and is an established product in the Midwest and Northeast.
Featuring an inside surface that includes a unique anti-microbial additive, V-Bio ® is proven to mitigate microbiological corrosion, inhibit volatile corrosion, and prevent galvanic corrosion. V-Bio ® is applicable for use with Zinc-coated ductile iron pipe, standard tar-coated pipe and bare pipe.
This product meets all requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the AWWA standard for polyethylene encasement (ANSI/AWWA C105/A21.5).
