OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

Firestone's GeoSmart EPDM is a synthetic rubber geomembrane specially designed to waterproof small and mid-size ponds with minimum time and effort. GeoSmart EPDM membranes are available in wide panels of up to 36 m that allow installation without the need for on-site seams. This guarantees a quick, easy and safe installation that is not affected by weather conditions and does not require sophisticated equipment. The system's simplicity, in combination with the exceptional properties of EPDM in terms of durability, elasticity, flexibility and puncture resistance, make GeoSmart EPDM the perfect fit for water containment applications such as agricultural ponds and pits and silage covers.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

One panel application

The wide panels of the GeoSmart EPDM membrane make it very easy to install, without the need to make any on-site seams. Basic installations do not require special tools or machinery and are independent from weather conditions.

 

Durable

The chemical composition of the GeoSmart EPDM membrane makes it very resistant to UV, ozone, microorganisms and extreme weather conditions. It does not contain plasticizers or antioxidants that can migrate and cause its premature aging. GeoSmart EPDM retains its physical and mechanical properties over several decades and requires little or no maintenance.

 

Flexible and elastic

The GeoSmart EPDM membrane is suitable for a wide range of substrates and can be elongated over 300% in all directions without cracking. This great flexibility allows it to perfectly match the shapes of the pond, adapt to the movements of the support and withstand high static puncture. The membrane remains flexible throughout its service life, even at temperatures as low as -45 °C.

 

Environmentally friendly

The exceptional durability of the GeoSmart EPDM membrane and its ease of repair significantly reduces its environmental impact. Chemically inert, it does not release pollutants into the air or in the water, making it safe for aquatic fauna and flora.

 

High friction angle

Its rough structure facilitates the installation process and the eventual covers are more stable on the slopes. This also reduces the risk of accidents by slipping.

REFERENCES

GeoSmart EPDM is the perfect fit for:

  • Irrigation reservoirs
    GeoSmart EPDM can be used in a variety of agricultural applications, such as irrigation reservoirs. The membrane does not release any chemicals into the water and has a life expectancy of several decades, regardless of whether the membrane is exposed or covered.
  • Dung pits
    GeoSmart EPDM provides an easy and cost-efficient solution to store animal slurry. Long-term watertightness is essential to protect the ground and water quality.
  • Silage covers
    The GeoSmart EPDM membrane provides an optimal solution for silage cover applications, protecting the feed from air and water intrusion while preserving its nutritional value. Its exceptional durability allows the same liner to be re-used for several years. More info...
  • Water containment
    Besides agricultural applications, there are other water containment projects that require an efficient and reliable waterproofing membrane, such as stormwater reservoirs designed to reduce the risk of floods and fire reservoirs that keep water available for firefighting.
  • Waste water reservoirs
    GeoSmart EPDM membranes have a wide range of chemical resistance and will protect the environment from potential pollution. Always contact your local Firestone representative to check the chemical compatibility of the EPDM liner.
