The new Starlight lateral and mainline UV lining system from German manufacturer IST is now available exclusively in the UK from distributor Source One Environmental (S1E).
“This system has a real crossover from the traditional lateral UV/LED machines and the bigger mainline UV machines. It allows you to install fully structural fibreglass GRP liners from 150mm to 300mm and up to 100 metres in length, such as the Brandenburger liners which we also keep in stock. On top, you’re able to UV cure laterals, allowing the contractor to attack both markets with the one system,” explained S1E Sales Manager, Tom Yoxall.
“One of the key benefits of the system is also the curing speed that it offers – at the largest diameters in its range, it can cure at 0.6 metres per minute – compared with curing speeds of just 0.2 metres per minute for most competitive machines.”
Larger models from IST such as the NuVision system have been available for some time and are in use on all the continents of the Globe. This new, smaller-end model is available to order now, with the first machine having been delivered by S1E to a UK customer during November.
“The design of this machine covers off so many issues and concerns for installers,” stated Tom. “As well as the curing time, it offers lots of real benefits when you’re on site. It’s a flexible enough system that it can be configured to the customer’s needs, so it’s ideally suited to the contractor’s work.”
The key benefits of the Starlight system are:
- Ability to cure structural GRP liners
