Geomembrane Material Information

    The following data is the result of laboratory tests and is intended to serve only as a guide. No performance warranty is intended or implied. The degree of chemical attack on any material is governed by the conditions under which it is exposed.  Exposure time, temperature, and size of area of exposure usually varies considerably in application, therefore this table is given and accepted at the user’s risk. Confirmation of the validity and suitability in specific cases should be obtained. When considering XR-5 for specific applications, it is suggested that a sample be tested in actual service before use. Where impractical, tests should be devised which simulate actual service conditions as closely as possible. These ratings are based on visual and physical examination of samples after removal from the test chemical after the samples of Black XR-5 were immersed for 28 days at room temperature. Results represent ability of material to retain its performance properties when in contact with the indicated chemical.
