Firestone EPDM geomembrane
Landscaping, Architecture, Garden
EPDM geomembrane insulating membrane, acting in a flexible and durable
solution for a wide range of applications in environments agricultural,
industrial and commercial uses, such as:
* Retention Tanks
* Tanks and irrigation channels
* Capacities for the production of artificial snow
* Ponds on golf courses
* Ponds for agriculture
* Treatment wetland
* Tanks, plants
* Sealing the bowl landfill
EPDM geomembrane is easy to install and designed for prolonged use as a
critical protective coat and waterproofing to large water features.
The product has already proved to the world
of the world - many in the demanding conditions - are the best proof of
the exceptional durability of Firestone EPDM geomembranes.
Firestone EPDM is used for the first time in the reservoirs for irrigation in southern Spain has nearly 40 years ago. Today, despite decades of use, kauczkowa membrane still a reliable waterproofing coating.
UNIQUE FEATURES AND BENEFITS.
EPDM geomembrane is a single-layer membrane (film) made from monomers
of ethylene - propylene - diene (EPDM), produced by US-based Firestone
Building Products - a world leader in waterproofing. Chemically stable membrane has the following features:
- High flexibility even at very low temperatures.
Firestone EPDM geomembrane is highly flexible even at very low temperatures (down to -45 ° C), which offers year-round use. This high adaptability, flexibility is an irregular membrane surface coatings offer excellent adhesion characteristics.
- High elasticity and extensibility of the formation of landforms.
Firestone EPDM Geomembrama is highly flexible and resilient. Extensibility comes to 300% in all directions without danger of cracking. Will suit the terrain.
- Resist pressure.
EPDM geomembrane provides almost unlimited resistance to hydrostatic
pressure compared to other manufacturers of geomembranes, so it can be
used in large size ranges of deep-water reservoirs.
- Dimensional stability
Firestone EPDM geomembranes can easily deform, but thanks to the so-called. "Shape
memory" returns to its original shape and size, as opposed to the
thermoplastic membrane that deform permanently losing thickness.
- High durability
The first installation of Firestone EPDM has been made in 1973 and is living proof to longevity. Firestone
EPDM geomembrane offers unmatched resistance to UV radiation, ozone and
high temperatures without changing the parameters and physical
properties, regardless of whether the membrane is exposed or obscured. It has no plasticizers which could migrate and lead to premature failure. If necessary, EPDM geomembranes can be easily repaired even after many years of use.
- Easy Installation
Firestone EPDM geomembrane is available in large flat sheets (no connection), to more than 15 me
meters in width and 61m in length (930m2), which translates into a short installation time and fewer calls for large areas. Moreover Firestone QuickSeam tape provides a proven method of linking does not require special tools.
6.10 x 30.5 m = 186 m2
7.62 x 30.5 m = 232 m2
9.15 x 30.5 m = 279 m2
12.2 x 30.5 m = 372 m2
15.25 x 30, 5 m = 465 m2
- Chemical resistance
EPDM geomembrane exhibits high resistance to alkalis and acid rain,
nitrates, phosphates and solutions, alcohols, microorganisms and
chemicals contained in the soil. Avoid contact with hydrocarbons, gasoline, hot asphalt, lubricants and oils.
- Environmentally friendly
Firestone EPDM geomembrane is chemically stable substance devoid of pollutants. Longevity
and the possibility of processing (recycling) in combination with the
protection of groundwater and the environment makes the membrane
Firestone environmentally friendly solution - the so-called. "Green". Moreover, the involvement of Firestone in environmental protection has contributed to numerous company initiatives, including to obtain ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, the plants producing Firestone EPDM membrane.
SYSTEM BUILT BASED ON EXPERIENCE ENGINEERING
has developed a wide range of additional products, which together with
EPDM geomembranes same company is a complete waterproof system. These include: QuickSeam Tape QuickSeam FormFlash, adhesives and sealants. Each component of Firestone EPDM geomembranes has been carefully designed and thoroughly tested
the department's Research and Development.
Reliable method for connecting
Firestone EPDM sheets may be installed at the destination by using a system combining Firestone QuickSeam Tape. It
is a technology based on self-adhesive tape made of EPDM and butyl,
used in combination with primer Firestone QuickPrime Plus. It's quick and easy solution, requiring sophisticated tools, ensures continued strength of the welds. The membrane thickness does not affect the installation method, speed or quality. Since the first application of Firestone QuickSeam Tape in 1987, has successfully installed millions of meters of tape.
Firestone QuickSeam FormFlash, sealing pipes, culverts, hard to reach
places in the interior and exterior has become a quick and easy. This collar uncured EPDM laminated to the adhesive tape QuickSeam Tape, which can be easily molded, giving it the desired shape.
SUMMARY OF FIRESTONE EPDM geomembranes
EPDM geomembrane has been tested and has received many national and
international certificates proving the excellent physical properties
and strength of connections. One of the most important French ASQUAL certificates is to be the most important in this area and product group. Firestone EPDM geomembranes also received CE mark.
