What Is Geomembrane?

Geomembran nedir?Nerelerde kullanılır? Geomembran özellikleri

Geomembrane is a product made of rubber that is used as a coating material in drinkable water ponds. This coating material gets soft and flexible when heated, however, its internal properties do not change. When cooled, it can return to its original state. The main purpose of geomembrane is to provide impermeability. The provision of impermeability in the field application is again provided with geomembrane.

  • Geomembrane is used in environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic and transport industries. In such fields;
  • Coating material in drinkable water ponds.
  • Coating material for general water tanks.
  • Coating material for liquid wastes.
  • Coating material for radioactive and hazardous liquid waste.
  • Coating material for saltwater solutions.
  • Coating material for aqueducts.
  • Coating material for various wastewater ducts.
  • Coating material for solid wastelands.
  • It is used to prevent leakage in filling dams.
  • Coating for hazardous drain box.
  • It is used in the provision of impermeability in tunnels.
  • It is used in the provision of impermeability in rockfill dams.
  • It is used in the provision of impermeability in masonry dams.
  • It is used to control impermeability in cofferdams.
  • It is used as prevention to odors coming from fillings.
  • It is used as a barrier against steam under buildings.
  • It is used to control swollen floors.
  • It is used to control frost-sensitive soil.
  • It is used in sensitive areas to prevent water leakage.
  • It is used to hold harmful liquid wastes that may occur under and near highways.
  • It is used as a coating structure for temporary loads.
  • It is used as a sealing layer to provide impermeability in asphalt superstructures.

Geomembrane used in buildings provides smooth and excellent insulation between -30 and +85°C.  In general, the area of use is quite large. It is used in building foundations, highway tunnels, concrete roofs, ballasted roofs, subway structures, underground galleries, hangars, wet volumes, and building dilatation systems. PVC membrane should be avoided direct contact with bitumen products due to its chemical structure. If the application is required, geotextile felt should be used as a separator layer.

Roof Membrane!

It is a product developed for roofs that are exposed to harsh weather conditions and sunlight. Suitable for hot air welding and mechanical joints. Because of its polyester reinforcement, it has high dimensional stability and high tear resistance.

Roof membranes are used in all kinds of concrete and steel roofs (UV required, heat insulated and non-insulated), parapets (UV required) and hideouts. Roof membranes should also avoid direct contact with bituminous products due to their chemical structure. If the application is required, geotextile felt should be used as a separation layer. It is developed for all kinds of roofs, hideouts and sandwich panels exposed to harsh weather and sunlight. Because of its polyester reinforcement and felt lamination, it has high dimensional stability and high tear resistance. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in geomembrane products.
