Each geomembrane has different uses depending on its own features. Improper use can directly affect the performance and service life.
PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride): chemically resistant, it is a high-performance material suitable for surfaces with high sun exposure. It includes polyester reinforcement and comes with an eight-year warranty.
PVC geomembranes: they are flexible and suitable for uneven surfaces without being punctured.
Polypropylene: it has the high chemical resistance of HDPE.
HDPE (High Density Polyethylene): it is the most widely produced synthetic polymer in the world. The main characteristics of this product are: it is colourless, odourless, non-toxic, and obtained at low pressure. It offers excellent thermal and chemical resistance (even to acids) as well as great resistance and strength against impact. It is mainly used to waterproof tailings dams and chemical product pools.
Flexible coverings: Flexible coverings are plastics constructed of silicon carbide particles, coloured grains, and reinforced with a complex fibreglass grid. They are pliable, can be bonded at high temperatures and have a thickness of 6.20 mm.
