Specific advantages of Carbofol®
Advantage 1: Carbofol® long-term durability
Durability and high chemical resistance are ensured by carefully selected resins and a special stabilising system, which is aligned with the resin type. An enormous amount of field and lab data supports this performance.
Advantage 2: Special embossed surface structure allows a safe construction on steep slopes
Special surface structures ensure reliable sealing even on steeper slopes. These embossed structures printed in the mass during manufacture make Carbofol® safe and durable in every point. Carbofol’s homogeneous structures offer maximum security with regard to the reproducibility of friction tests. This is evidenced by an extensive series of laboratory tests.
Advantage 3: Weld protection strips and lateral marking
The Carbofol® geomembranes are provided with a white edge mark on both sides. These edge marks indicate the recommended areas of overlapping and are a visual aid during the installation. Furthermore, a thin protective sheet (~ 150mm wide) is attached to both edges and is peeled off immediately prior to the welding process to provide an absolutely clean welding area.
Advantage 4: High melt flow rate
Carbofol® geomembranes feature a melt flow rate (MFR) between 1 and 3g/10 minutes tested at 190°C/5kg and thus have the advantage of a large welding window. This is a factor which makes the Carbofol® geomembranes flexible and easy to handle during on-site installation. The speed at which welding processes can be carried out on Carbofol® geomembranes is distinctly higher than that of other liners with an MFR less than 1g/10min. This gives Carbofol® yet another major benefit during on-site installation and welding.
