The use PVC-P geomembranes as a waterproofing for basins and similar projects is a sophisticated and safe technology to conserve water for all kind of use.

The change of climate seems to have a very important impact to the available reserves of drinking water in our world which finally makes water more important than petrol. It is easy to forget about this fact in countries of heavy rainfalls but most of the countries are in lack of this so vital element. Equally important is the protection of the ground water reserves against industrial pollution. That makes the waterproofing technology so important as it helps to conserve and to protect our limited water reserves. A water barrier with geomembrane stores the water for the daily use as drinking water or for irrigation purpose or keeps the ground water level clean of chemicals or other polluting materials. Due to the outstanding mechanical performance concerning puncturing resistance and elongation PVC-P geomembranes are predestined for the waterproofing of basins and similar projects.

RENOLIT Group has the right product to make your project watertight to conserve your water resources. The technical service is also available to you in finding the right technical solution for your waterproofing task. This combination should help you to offer a satisfying work to your client.

To have a more detailed information about how to execute the waterproofing for such projects see the document about “Waterproofing of basins and similar projects”. (sealing basin)

Depending on the employment RENOLIT can offer the right membrane

  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35052 - Homogeneus geomembrane for drinking water limited UV resistance
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35053 - homogeneus geomembrane not UV-resistant
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 35054 - homogeneus geomembrane for irrigation and industrial basins UV resistant  
  • RENOLIT ALKORPLAN 02329 - black geomembrane for ponds

The geomembranes of RENOLIT are corresponding to the most important standards as

  • Sanidad - Spain

    The European Certificate is also available. Ask for the agreement you need to our service department.

    Since over 30 years RENOLIT ALKORPLAN geomembranes are used as lining material for water reservoir and similar projects on nearly all continents of the world. Their quality, weld ability, flexibility and reliability are estimated by all users of our geomembranes.

    Some examples of the types of basins water tightened with RENOLIT ALKORPLAN geomembranes are given below. Further information on specific projects and case studies of basin sealing can be found in our references.
