Engineered to be resistant to harsh chemicals, extreme weather, abrasions, and punctures, oil booms are used across the world for oil spill containment and preventative environmental protection. Seaman Corporation manufactures coated fabrics for 3 levels of performance, including PVC, XR-5® and Polyurethane. XR-5 is durable and engineered for the very toughest applications and environments that require high-strength membranes, especially oil booms.

Oil-Resistant Membranes You Can Trust

XR-5 has helped set the industry standard for geomembrane strength, durability, and performance, and has many advantages over high-density polyethylene (HDPE), chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE), and polypropylene, including:

  • Superior UV resistance
  • Superior chemical resistance
  • Superior tensile strength
  • Low thermal expansion/contraction
  • Weathering and chemical resistance warranty
