DOWNLOAD NEWEST WEBINAR: Effect of Elevated Temperatures on Geosynthetics - Presented by Dr. Timothy Stark, University of Illinois

Dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

WHY?
Factory fabrication reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, allows modular construction and provides consistent seam and liner quality.

Air-channel testing of thermally bonded flexible polypropylene geomembrane seams

For more than a decade, thermal welding has proven to be an efficient and costeffective procedure for field-seaming geomembranes. Thermal welding of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) geomembranes has allowed use of air-channel tests in lieu of destructive peel tests to verify field seams meet specified seam peel strength (Thomas and Stark, 2003).
