The new E² line of Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is a string-reinforced LLDPE composite membrane with the specific properties required for geomembranes and other demanding applications. LLDPE has been in increasing demand due to its superior flexibility and better layflat versus High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE).
E² has specially formulated its LLDPE fabric for high resistance to chemicals and UV, and offers the material with a puncture- and tear-resistant string-reinforced scrim. It is ideal for use in solid and hazardous waste landfills, C & D landfills, mining and industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment. The material, sold in jet black with a matte finish on both sides is available in widths up to 10 feet, in 30, 36 and 45 mil, for easy and efficient fabrication. A unique, embossed textured finish for improved traction is now available in all thicknesses.
LLDPE is flexible enough to be fabricated ahead of time, welded and tested on a dry floor under controlled conditions. The advantages of this process include accelerated and more consistent welding, greater peel adhesion and bonded seam sheer values, and reduced construction quality assurance (CQA) expenses.
