A High-Strength, Chemically Resistant Geomembrane Liner
This geomembrane liner is compatible with harsh liquids and has many advantages over high-density polyethylene (HDPE), chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE), and polypropylene, including:
- Low thermal expansion/contraction
- Superior UV/chemical resistance and tensile strength
Style 9832 XR5 G GEOMEMBRANE APPLICATIONS
XR-5 Geomembranes are durable and engineered for the toughest applications and environments that require high-strength membranes, including:
- Floating covers: Floating covers manufactured from geomembranes are a popular solution to odor containment and an integral component of low-rate anaerobic digestion systems.
- Leachate ponds: A superior material for UV-exposed leachate collection pond lining, XR-5 Geomembranes provide long-term containment assurance with minimal maintenance.
- Secondary containment: Reinforced flexible geomembrane liners are a better option for secondary containment of spills because unlike concrete, these liners don’t leak, are less expensive, and don’t require costly subgrade consideration and amendment.
- Process wastewater: XR-5 Geomembranes have a range of chemical resistance and physical properties, making them the ideal material for the wastewater treatment process.
- Floating baffles: Floating baffles are used in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants to improve water quality. XR-5 Geomembranes are used for the principal construction material in floating diversion baffles.
- Tank floors: A type of secondary containment, geomembranes are placed under the floors of bulk storage tanks, functioning as a protective barrier—between the tank and the fluid—that contains leakage and allows enhanced monitoring.
- Oil booms: XR® Geomembranes is one of the world’s largest suppliers of reinforced membranes for long-term oil boom use.
- Wastewater ponds: Low thermal expansion and contracting properties, along with toughness derived from the base fabric, allow the owner to leave the liner exposed.
- Geofoam coverage (9832 XR-5 G): Not only do reinforced geomembranes gain strength from the base fabric, they are less thick or rigid compared to their unreinforced counterparts.
