(PVC) Polyvinyl Chloride Geomembranes

Geomembrane Liners

PVC geomembranes have proven especially effective in dealing with limited site access, long haul distances and areas where freeze and thaw are an issue. PVC geomembranes can be factory fabricated into large panels to minimize field sewing. However, they are also easily spliced in the field. All products meet PGI 1104 / ASTM D-7176-06 specifications.

For critical applications requiring geomembrane liner manufactured to minimum tolerances the following properties are suggested. For non critical applications these properties should be used as a guideline only. Feel free to call us to discuss your project. (800)518-2290.
