The bottom line on spill protection
Storage tanks, portable containers, piping, equipment — if it carries or contains anything considered a contaminant, the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Rule through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires some form of secondary containment. Plastatech® geomembranes make excellent secondary containment barriers, particularly for large or difficult applications.
Resistant to most oils and chemicals, PVC is an excellent material for secondary containment in a wide range of applications, including:
- Petroleum wells, refineries and storage facilities
- Chemical processing, transport and storage
- Manufacturing processes such as cutting oils and coolants
- Wastewater processing
Our geomembranes are specially formulated to remain highly flexible and resistant to cracking or puncture on rough or uneven surfaces — even across the entire range of normal operating temperatures. They are also highly resistant to degradation from ultraviolet light, making them suitable for a wide range of applications that are exposed to the elements.
Most Plastatech geomembranes are ideal for custom prefabrication by third-party fabricators to reduce the number of field-welded seams. This not only offers faster installation, but greater confidence, particularly in large containment areas.
