Geomembranes are thin plastic sheets that are often used as an integral component of the barrier system to prevent environmental contamination. Geomembranes are used in facilities, such as municipal waste landfills, mine waste reservoirs, oil and gas waste ponds, agriculture waste lagoons, etc. Depending on the nature of contaminant, geomembrane is required to last for decades to sometimes thousands of years and this warrants a good quality control during manufacturing process.
Layfield manufactures geomembranes at their facility along with several construction products and flexible packaging for food, industrial, and medical companies. This tour will give you a unique opportunity to see manufacturing process of products engineers use for protecting the environment and how your favorite chips’ packaging comes to life.
