Layfield Geosynthetics announced the release of VaporFlex® Premium geomembrane.
VaporFlex® Premium is a 7-layer coextruded geomembrane barrier with an ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) core layer. This high-performance geomembrane is specifically designed to provide an ultra-low permeability gas barrier in a broad range of geoenvironmental applications.
When compared to high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the VaporFlex® Premium was tested to be 800 times less permeable to methane. Layfield has tested the geomembrane to a wide range of other volatile organic compounds including benzene, toluene and xylene, and a suite of chlorinated solvents, with equally favorable results. In addition to its gas barrier properties, the geomembrane is resistant to hydrocarbons, oils and other organic compounds. This geomembrane is currently manufactured in 30-, 40- and 60-mil thicknesses.
VaporFlex® Premium is designed to provide containment for a broad range of applications. These include gas barriers, containment, remediation of contaminated soil, brownfield barriers, odor control covers, landfill capping, geofoam wrap, and leachate collection ponds.
