HDPE membrane is a high density Polyethylene membrane also know as alkathene or polythene. It is commonly recycle and thermoplastic polymer produce from ethylene monomer.High density polyethylene is popular because of its low material cost and best chemical resistance. This membrane is consider thicker as compare to geomembrane. This type of water and chemical resistant membrane is install by train installers and use widely across all applications. It is install to line the base of landfills, pond linings and water containment projects. This material is consider expose lining materials which have high UV resistance quality.
This type of membrane is commonly use for wide applications and made up of plastic which has a liner structure with few branches lending to its density ratio. As a result of such plastic’s molecular mixture this material shines brighter comparatively and resists moisture highly.
HDPE membrane was introduce in market after 1930s; it is high density version of waterproofing membrane sheets and vary in its flexibility. High density grades are consider more suitable materials for water containment projects.
High density polyethylene is normally use to form a waterproofing membrane but also use to make shampoo bottles, toys, pipe systems, milk jugs, recycling bins, Grocery bags, flower pots and Cereal Box liners.
- Easy processing
- Easy forming
- High permeability
- High chemical and water resistance
- Long Service life
- Excellent resistant to plant root puncture
- Possible construction on wet base
- Fully prevent water infiltration
Advantages of HDPE Membrane sheets
This type of membrane sheet is use in construction process to create a barrier for moisture or seepage because of its benefits it is use in wide applications. Some major benefits of high density polyethylene are mention below:
- Easily affordable
- The best quality material
- Harsh Temperature resistance
- Ultra-violet resistant
- Chemical resistance
- Stiff material
- High Durability
- Highly Versatile
