What are the Specific Applications of Geomembrane in Engineering?

As a waterproof and barrier product with polymer as the primary raw material, geomembrane has strong waterproof, tensile properties, high temperature and cold resistance, corrosion resistance, ageing resistance and other properties. It can play a perfect role in engineering projects—seepage prevention and isolation effect, so it is used. Let’s analyze the specific application of geomembranes in different engineering projects.

1. HDPE geomembrane is suitable for environmental protection

In environmental protection, the application of geomembranes is widespread, such as in landfills, sewage treatment plants, power plant regulating tanks, industrial or hospital solid waste treatment plants, etc. At the same time, these projects have high-quality geomembrane requirements, such as higher Common waste landfills generally use 1.5mm or 2.0mm high-density polyethene geomembrane. At the same time, it is also used with about 5000g waterproof blanket and 600g filament cloth to achieve comprehensive protection, anti-seepage and isolation effects.

2. LLDPE geomembrane is suitable for water conservancy projects

Joint water conservancy projects such as anti-seepage of river embankments, lake dams, reservoir areas, canals, etc. slope protection, etc., such projects generally use LLDPE geomembranes of about 1.0mm or two geotextile geomembranes in composite membranes. One film, anti-seepage and adequate protection at the same time.

3. HDPE geomembrane is suitable for municipal and infrastructure construction

HDPE geomembranes are used in subways, basements, tunnels, tunnel anti-seepage linings, roadbeds, and railway subgrades. It is also an indispensable waterproof material in tunnel engineering.

4. LLDPE geomembrane is suitable for garden projects

Geomembranes are used in garden projects, such as artificial lakes, river courses, reservoirs, ponds, slope protection, green turf anti-seepage, etc. For example, a geomembrane of 0.75mm or more can be used in an artificial lake, or a composite membrane of about 800g can be used, and it can be used with a waterproof blanket to achieve a better anti-seepage effect.

5. HDPE geomembrane is suitable for the petrochemical field

Such as chemical plants, oil refineries, tank bottom anti-seepage in oil tank farms, chemical reaction tanks, inner linings of sedimentation tanks, secondary linings, etc. Taking oil tank bottom anti-seepage as an example. Generally, a 2.0mm high-density polyethene geomembrane is used with a 4500g-5000g waterproof blanket to prevent seepage, moisture, corrosion and isolation for the bottom of the oil tank.

6. LLDPE geomembrane is suitable for agriculture and animal husbandry

In agriculture, reservoirs, drinking water storage tanks, irrigation systems, rainwater collection, rural biogas digesters, livestock breeding, etc., geomembranes are also used. For example, biogas digesters are generally constructed with geomembranes with a thickness of 1.0 mm-1.5 mm.

7. HDPE geomembrane used in aquaculture

At present, the application of geomembrane in the aquaculture industry is becoming more and more extensive, such as fish ponds, shrimp ponds, etc., depending on the situation, a new material geomembrane with a thickness of 0.3mm-1.5mm is generally used, which can prevent seepage and prevent The escape of fish and shrimp, etc., and the pond is easy to clean, which is conducive to saving costs, and is affirmed by the majority of farmers.

Besides applying geomembranes in hydraulic engineering, environmental engineering and road engineering, geomembranes can also be used in mining, tailings, railway, agricultural water conservancy, and other fields. It not only has an anti-seepage effect but also has the advantages of corrosion resistance, heat resistance, corrosion resistance and weather resistance, which ensures the long-term stability and safety of the project.
