8 Excavation and Site Development Liners and Covers for Soil Remediation

8 Excavation and Site Development Liners and Covers for Soil Remediation

Site development projects and excavations often require the removal or remediation of soil that has been contaminated with harmful chemicals or waste. In fact, soil contamination may be the reason you need to conduct an excavation in the first place.

Heavy-duty soil remediation liners and soil excavation covers can be used to prevent these pollutants from entering ground water and air, helping to avoiding even costlier remediation efforts. Americover carries a wide range of stock and custom-fabricated liners and covers to help protect the environment and your health during excavations and remediations. Here are eight options to help you tackle your next project, along with the best applications for each.

1. Custom Fabricated HDPE Geomembrane Liner

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembrane liners are specially formulated to perform when exposed to outdoor conditions for an extended period of time, making them an ideal option for environmental clean-up projects like soil remediation. Available in 12 mil to 100 mil thicknesses, this versatile material can be custom-fabricated according to the specifications of your project.

2. Custom Fabricated LLDPE Geomembrane Liner

Low linear density polyethylene (LLDPE) geomembrane liners are highly flexible and built to last, with no additives, fillers, extenders or plasticizers that could potentially cause premature wear. Because they are produced with virgin resin, LLDPE liners provide heavy-duty protection with a reduced environmental impact. LLDPE liners are available in thicknesses ranging from 6 mil to 40 mil and can be custom-fabricated according to the specifications of your project.

Woven coated poly sheeting from Americover is available in a wide range of thicknesses and can be custom-fabricated according to the specifications of your project.

Available in 45 mil or 60 mil thicknesses, these liners lay flat and are flexible enough to conform to subgrade irregularities for uncompromising protection. EPDM geomembrane liners have one of the longest life expectancies on the market—a roll should last you approximately 20 years in exposed applications.
