PVC
LINER MATERIAL

PVC Liner-Polypropylene Liners-Polyethylene LinerThe combination of chemical resistance and good physical properties has led to PVC usage in numerous industrial applications such as Landfill Liners, Secondary Waste Containment, Lagoons, Effluent Containment Ponds, among others. PVC also works well in water applications.

PVC is resistant to oils, alcohols, aliphatic hydrocarbons, waste byproducts, among other corrosive liquids.

PVC has excellent elongation characteristics which allows for stretching if needed or if temperature changes drastically. This helps prevent stress from cracking which may occur with products such as High Density Polyethylene.

PVC is also easily heat welded together which allows for large panel fabrication, reducing the risk of compromised seams and allowing for easy installation. PVC liners  can also be easily rolled & folded for compact shipping.

Polyethylene liners are well suited for both, small as well as large applications from a small backyard pond to the largest containment ponds. Unlike using bentonite or clay fillers, it won't break like concrete and you can be sure of its success the first time. Thus, Polyethylene is the ideal pond liner material because it is safe for fish & plant life, inexpensive, easy to install and has a long durability.

Polypropylene is an extremely durable product that is designed to be left exposed and is reinforced with nylon scrim to provide superior toughness and excellent dimensional stability. An extrusion process (or calandering) is involved in manufacturing of Polypropylenes in which reinforcing polyester scrim fabrics are combined. Scrims are fully contained within the two layers of polypropylene to eliminate wicking.

Eastern Environmental Liner has been in the PVC liners, polypropylene liners & polyethylene liner industry to advise the best material thickness and type for secondary and primary containment.
