Geomembranes Built to Outlast and Outperform

XR-5 Geomembranes are proven to withstand the harshest environments and contaminants. From subzero temperatures and blistering UV rays to wastewater and hydrocarbon contaminant, XR-5 Geomembranes set the industry standard for strength, durability, and performance.

Common Uses of Geomembrane Liners

XR-5 Geomembranes are durable and engineered for broad chemical-resistant applications that require high-strength membranes, including:

Floating Covers

The XR-5 Geomembrane provides superior seam strength under constant loading and temperature fluctuations and is essential to personnel who walk on floating covers. The broad range of chemical resistance and flexible nature of the membrane make it the ideal material for floating cover construction.

Leachate Ponds

XR-5 Geomembranes are a superior material for UV-exposed leachate collection pond lining. XR-5 Geomembrane-lined impoundments safely collect and store both leachate and stormwater prior to treatment, as well as provide long-term containment with minimal maintenance.

Secondary Containment

XR® Geomembranes’ secondary containment liners are designed with the strength and durability necessary for secondary containment of spills for a short period, even under catastrophic circumstances.

Process Wastewater

XR-5 Geomembranes are widely used as an impoundment and tank containment liner for a variety of chemical, petroleum, and process wastewater. These membranes have a range of chemical resistance and physical properties, making them the ideal material for the wastewater treatment process.

Floating Baffles

XR-5 Geomembranes are used for the principal construction material in floating baffles. These baffles are used to upgrade wastewater treatment facilities by preventing short-circuiting, thus increasing hydraulic detention time and plant capacity.

Tank Floors

The geomembrane functions as a barrier for both leakage containment and to allow enhanced monitoring. Our tank floor liners provide a wide range of benefits, including long-term flexibility, resistance to corrosion caused by harsh chemicals, and more.

Oil Booms

Engineered to be resistant to harsh chemicals, extreme weather, abrasions, and punctures, oil containment booms are used across the world for oil spill containment and preventative environmental protection. XR Geomembranes is one of the world’s largest suppliers of reinforced membranes for long-term oil boom use.

Wastewater Ponds

Low thermal expansion and contracting properties, along with toughness derived from the base fabric, allow the owner to leave the liner exposed, resulting in no slope maintenance and fewer land requirements.

Transportation & Infrastructure

EPS Geofoam must be protected from the degrading effects of hydrocarbon fuels, petroleum-based asphalt, water intrusion, acidic soils and more. Geomembranes with the right formulation are the best way to meet regulatory requirements, while protecting EPS Geofoam from the wear and tear it will encounter in its lifetime--and to ensure a successful transportation or infrastructure project now and into the future.
