We request you to kindly send us the GRI-approved grades for manufacturing HDPE geomembrane as per GM13.
The GRI–GM13 specification is a template of required properties for a manufacturer to meet or exceed. If your geomembrane does indeed meet the requirements, you can say so or even have an independent testing laboratory evaluate the material and provide a testing report accordingly. We have several such laboratories that are accredited to do such testing. Please advise if you want such contacts…
I appreciate it if I can get GRI–GM13,GRI–GM17, and GRI–GM19, the latest documents.
Now, I am testing the HDPE smooth and textured geomembranes, so I need the standard specification and test method, latest document.
If you can, please send me the documents above.
Thank you so much.
