SOLSHEET Geosynthetic Clay Liner

SOLSHEET is a reinforced needle-punched Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL) specifically designed for landfill, surface water impoundments and secondary containment.

SOLSHEET GCL is a mechanically bonded composite of pulverised bentonite embedded between two layers of geotextile. Additional bentonite is added to the overlap edges for ease of sealing.

SOLSHEET GCL’s provide hydraulic performance equivalent to one metre of compacted clay, with a total GCL thickness of less than 10mm. SOLSHEET GCL’s are self-sealing if punctured, and are manufactured in large rolls that require just a simple overlapped seam. Fast and easy to install, as well as being highly cost effective, SOLSHEET GCL’s provide a superior choice for both designers and contractors

Applications:
• Landfill Caps
• Landfill Liners
• Contaminated Land Caps
• Secondary Containment
• Civil Engineering / Transportation
• Surface Water Impoundments (Lakes, etc)
• MiningResistance to differential settlement

Benefits & Advantages:
• Natural granular sodium bentonite
• Composite of natural & synthetic materials
• Unrivalled hydraulic performance
• Highly competitive installed cost
• Self-sealing if punctured
• Excellent chemical resistance
• Highly competitive installed cost
• Fast and easy to install
• Excellent slope stability characteristics
• Excellent climatic resistance
• Resistance to differential settlement
