The light train is controlled by computer and allows UV light to penetrate the polyester resin impregnated liner – the resin having a light sensitive catalyst added.

Once the UV light comes in contact with the lining, curing commences - the technique is fast and once the light train has passed a point, the lining at that point is cured consequently the engineer does not have to wait until a number of hours for curing of the full pipeline.
