There are many benefits to using PVC liners when compared to other materials including greater flexibility, conformity, durability and the ability to custom-fabricate PVC material in a factory environment. 

Plastatech® has been manufacturing reinforced, flexible PVC membranes since 1996. With our extensive experience and proven history, we understand the manufacturing process requires going beyond the ordinary. No matter how challenging the product or application, you can depend on Plastatech to take the extra step to find the answer. This approach has generated our line of industry-leading products.

Plastatech® geomembranes come in a range of thicknesses to meet your project needs. Required material thicknesses are determined by the project engineer and site specific conditions. Contact a Plastatech representative to determine the best material for your specific application.

Plastatech® offers both UV and non-UV stable geomembranes. UV stable geomembranes from Plastatech can be exposed to direct sunlight, however, the exposed longevity depends on the material selected and location of the project. Contact a Plastatech representative to determine the best material for your specific application.

The project location and installation details will help to determine the expected longevity for the application. Contact a Plastatech® representative to determine the best material for your specific application.

Yes, Plastatech® liners are made with polyethylene or flexible polypropylene and may expand and contract as the sheet temperature changes.

Plastatech® materials meet a wide variety of PGI and ASTM standards and requirements. Please view our Resource Library or contact a Plastatech representative for more information.
