Pipe Lining UMP Urethane Moulded Products

Pipe lining 

We have specifically formulated our polyurethane lining to meet the specialised demands of pipeline applications. The lining is cast into pipes, T-pieces and bends, creating a seamless lining with no bond joints.

UMP’s pipe lining is monolithic and is hydrolytically stable. It is not impacted by the contraction or expansion from temperature variances and by water hammer. It is ideally suited for applications such as the transportation of abrasive mineral slurries in mining, as well as in-plant process piping, mill reticulation piping, tailings transfer lines, slurry lines and concentrate slurry lines.

UMP pipe lining offers:

  • Extended asset life
  • Environmental protection
  • Increased flow
  • Low operating costs
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Superior impact resistance
  • Excellent cut and tear resistance


UMP is one of the few companies globally to have developed a method of accurately lining bends. Our bends are well-known to solve wear problems and are often used to economically optimise a pipeline design through the combination of UMP’s urethane bends and HDPE or rubber lined straights.

Technical information:

  • Pipe diameter ranges from 80 NB through to 900 NB
  • Bends 1.5 D, 3 D and 5 D
  • Minimum lining thickness 10 mm
