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.

Low-temperature air channel testing of thermally bonded PVC geomembrane seams

The objective of this paper is to develop a procedure for air channel testing of dualtrack thermal seams at low sheet temperatures and recommendations for reducing destructive testing of field PVC geomembrane seams. Thus the proposed relationship and equation allow the seam peel strength to be determined from the field air channel testing without conducting destructive tests.
