Gas barrier performance and EVOH layers in geomembranes

Слои ЭВА и улучшенные качества геомембран при создании газового барьера

Когда речь заходит об ограждении жидких отходов, геосинтетические барьеры отлично выполняют эти функции. Однако, когда нужно закапсулировать газовые отходы, заградительную функцию геосинтетики необходимо улучшить. Например, летучие органические вещества (ЛОВ) могут проникать через барьерные системы. Процент проникновения действительно не большой, но применение в геомембранах этилен венил алкоголя ... »
