Geosynthetic Clay Liners are innovative composites products that consist of dry bentonite sandwiched between two layers of geotextile. They are available in a range thicknesses and capabilities that are engineered for a variety of lining applications.
Geosynthetic Clay Liners provide an alternative to conventional Compacted Clay Liners by replacing a thick section of compacted clay with a thin layer of pure sodium bentonite. The benefits of this approach include easy installation and more useable air-space in landfill applications.
Geosynthetic Clay Liners also have unique advantages making them the right choice for many applications. These include both cost effectiveness and self-sealing capabilities which reduce the risk of failure due to adverse field and operating conditions.
A hallmark of Geosynthetic Clay Liners is that installation can be completed by construction personnel using conventional equipment.
