Carbonblock Hydrocarbon Barrier
Hydrocarbon Barrier; Prevents the Ingress of latent hydrocarbons into a development. Used on brownfield and redevelopment sites such as old forecourts etc.
Geosynthetics CarbonBlock provides high mechanical strength due to the high quality raw material used and is easily laid without wrinkling.
Carbonblock is manufactured as a large area product, to minimise seam jointing. Carbonblock provides excellent weld quality which can be assured in short term peeling and shear tests.
Carbonblock has been tested for microbiological resistance, for resistance to rodents and roots. Due to the chemical structure – polyethylene macromolecules – it provides superior resistance against many chemicals and it does not cause any harm to the environment as it contains no plasticizers, fillers, micro biocides or other substances which could be leached out by substances in soil, water or produced by roots.
Geosynthetics Carbonblock geomembranes provide excellent UV-resistance and can, therefore, be used in uncovered applications as well as the conventional applications. Technical service life expectancy when covered can be assumed to be more than 65 years in normal soils.
A precondition for a long service life is proper design and construction.
