Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) – Geofantex

  • Compactness: The sodium-based bentonite forms a high-density diaphragm underwater pressure. When the thickness is about 3mm, its water permeability is less than 5×10ˉ11m/s, which is equivalent to 100 times the compactness of 30cm thick clay, which is very strong. The self-retaining water performance.
  • Permanent waterproof performance: Because sodium bentonite is a natural inorganic material, even after a long time or the surrounding environment changes, it will not be aging or corroded, so the waterproof performance is long-lasting.
  • Simple construction: Compared with other waterproof materials, the construction is relatively simple, without heating and pasting. Just use bentonite powder, nails, washers, etc. for connection and fixation. No special inspection is required after construction, and it is easy to repair if waterproof defects are found. Geosynthetic Clay Liner (GCL) is the shortest construction period among the existing waterproof materials.
  • Integration of waterproof materials and objects: sodium-based bentonite has 20 to 28 times the expansion capacity when exposed to water. Even if the concrete structure vibrates and settles, the bentonite in the Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) can repair cracks on the concrete surface within 2mm.
  • Green and environmental protection: Bentonite is a natural inorganic material, which has no special impact on the environment and has good environmental performance.
  • Unaffected by temperature: it will not be brittle under cold weather conditions.

Product Details

Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) – Geofantex

The Geosynthetics Clay Liner is a kind of geosynthetic material specially used for anti-seepage of artificial lakes, waterscapes, landfills, underground garages, roof gardens, pools, oil depots and chemical storage yards. It is made of highly expansive sodium-based bentonite is filled between the special composite woven geotextile and non-woven geotextile. The bentonite impermeable pad made by needle punching can form many small fiber spaces. The bentonite particles cannot flow in one direction, and they stay in the pad when it meets water. A uniform and high-density colloidal waterproof layer is formed to effectively prevent water leakage.

The Applications of Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) – Geofantex

  1. Used to stabilize road and railway subgrades.
  2. The waterproof of municipal engineering, underground engineering of subways, buildings and roof reservoirs.
  3. Environmental protection and sanitation, domestic waste landfill, sewage treatment plant, industrial waste.
  4. Water conservancy, seepage prevention, plugging and reinforcement of rivers, lakes, reservoirs and dams.
  5. Waterproof of ponds in gardens, artificial lakes, golf courses, etc.
  6. Waterproof, anti-corrosion, anti-leakage, reinforcement, etc. in petrochemical, mining, agricultural and other fields.

Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) Role in engineering – Geofantex

  1. It has excellent waterproof and anti-seepage performance, the anti-seepage hydrostatic pressure can reach 1.0MPa or more, and the permeability coefficient is 5×10-9cm/s. Bentonite is a natural inorganic material, which will not cause an aging reaction and has good durability; Any adverse effects on the environment are environmentally friendly materials
  2. It has all the characteristics of geotextile materials, such as separation, reinforcement, protection, filtration, etc. It is easy to construct and is not restricted by the construction environment temperature. It can also be constructed below 0°C. Only need to spread the Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) on the ground during construction, fix it with nails and washers during vertical or inclined construction, and lap it as required.
  3. Easy to repair; even after the completion of the waterproof (seepage) construction, if the waterproof layer is accidentally damaged, as long as the damaged part is simply repaired, the perfect waterproof performance can be regained.
  4. The performance-to-price ratio is relatively high, and the application is very wide.
  5. The product has a width of up to 6 meters, which matches the international geotextile (membrane) specifications, which greatly improves the construction efficiency.

What is Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) – Geofantex

Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) is an impermeable liner between GCL and polymer material-geomembrane. Mainly used in environmental engineering waste landfills, underground reservoirs, underground infrastructure construction and other projects to solve the problems of sealing, isolation, and leakage prevention, with good effect and strong resistance to destruction.

Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner (GCL) can be divided into needle-punched sodium-based Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner, needle-punched film-coated Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner, and adhesive-processed Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner.  The needle-punched membrane-coated Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner is a layer of high-density polyethylene geomembrane compounded on the outer surface of the non-woven geotextile of the needle-punched Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner.  Adhesive method sodium-based Bentonite Geosynthetics Clay Liner is a kind of sodium-based bentonite produced by bonding bentonite particles to a high-density polyethylene board with an adhesive
