Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride films (usually called PVC) have been used for geomembrane applications for over 40 years. PVC is an elastic material that can conform readily to irregular shapes and differential settlement. PVC is one of the most versatile plastics available with formulations that can provide oil resistance, UV stability, low temperature resistance, and other specific properties. Standard formulations of PVC geomembrane materials are blended for longevity and low cost.
Layfield's PVC materials meet the requirements of ASTM D7176-06 Standard Specification for Non-reinforced Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Geomembranes Used in Buried Applications.
