The use of liners in civil and environmental applications is becoming more widespread as there develops a greater understanding of the effects of contaminated ground conditions on structures and the environment.
Global Synthetics are able to offer a wide range of liners that are compatible with the diverse range of applications and contaminants likely to be encountered.
Bentofix® Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL) is a factory produced wide width rolls of bentonite “sandwiched” between layers of geotextile. GCL’s are an engineered replacement for traditional clay lining of proposed containment structures.
Global Synthetics Geosynthetic Clay Liners offer the designer an engineered equivalency to clay without the costly import and placement and quality control costs associated with this traditional method. The volume of containment may be significantly increased with the use of a Global Synthetics Geosynthetic Clay Liner as the product offers equivalency to very thick layers of compacted clay.
Bentofix® Geosynthetics Clay Liner – B Series
Bentofix® GCL with nonwoven cover geotextile and composite nonwoven/woven scrim carrier geotextile. Also features self-sealing side overlaps. The composite nonwoven/woven carrier geotextile provides additional interface friction, with enhanced ability to minimize internal bentonite erosion. The additional internal shear (and peel) strength and puncture resistance are also characteristics of the B-type GCL. Ideal for side batters of landfill cells.
Bentofix® – Landfill In Estonia
The largest landfill in Estonia, Pääsküla Landfill, just outside the capital city of Tallinn, was capped in 2005 with the work finishing in 2006. Although parts of the landfill had been in place for many years, substantial settlements were expected.View More Case Studies
