R.P.E. (Reinforced Polyethylene)
R.P.E. geomembranes are lightweight multi-layer materials which offer a very economical solution in many primary containment applications, such as temporary landfill caps, canal lining, soil remediation and other non-hazardous applications. R.P.E.s remain flexible in very low temperatures, have good chemical resistance and short-term UV resistance, allowing it to remain exposed for three to five years.
The inner layer is typically a pre-stressed woven polyethylene tape, coated on both sides with an impermeable LDPE (low density polyethylene).
