Economical Seepage Control In Non-critical Applications
Layfield has used reinforced polyethylene (RPE®) as an economical geomembrane material for over 35 years. With UV and chemical resistance and enhanced performance properties allowing for flexibility in extremely low temperatures, RPE® is an excellent material for seepage control in non-hazardous applications.
A backfilled RPE® liner can provide permanent seepage control in water containment applications. With proper placing and backfilling, RPE® can also provide geomembrane-level containment on sandy soil in carefully prepared sites. Common uses of RPE®’s are canal liners, drilling sump liners, soil remediation liners, tailings dam liners, and interim landfill caps.
Why Choose Reinforced Polyethylene (RPE) Liners?
High Strength-to-Weight Ratio
Due to its woven polyethylene structure, RPE® is powerful yet lightweight, so you can pre-fabricate this material into very large panels.
Ease of Installation
Factory pre-fabrication can eliminate the need for specialized field installation crews. Layfield offers specialized seaming tape to join panels together based on the application.
Enhanced Performance Properties
UV resistance for short-term exposed use, flexible in extremely low temperatures, and has good chemical resistance.
- Lightweight and easy to work with
- UV-stable coating
- Superior puncture and tear resistance
- Fish and plant safe
- Remains flexible in extremely low temperatures
RPE®’s are economical lining materials that help control seepage and permeation and help prevent the loss of precious water from ponds and irrigation canals.
