Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) is a flexible, non-reinforced, cost-effective geomembrane. Because of its high puncture strength and flexibility, it is a superior choice for buried applications, with a service life of 20 years or more. Its inorganic chemical resistance makes it ideal for many industrial applications.
