The Value of Fabrication

Prefabricating geomembrane rolls provides a number of cost advantages for containment applications. Fabrication of panels prior to site delivery allows for the seaming work to be performed in the controlled environment of a facility rather than in the open, elements-exposed environment of a job site, where wind and dust challenge seaming integrity. Also, large panels can be deployed quickly for quicker installation (and normally with non-specialized labor). In-Line Plastics has 15 years of experience in custom fabrication and can assemble delivery-ready panels in excess of 200,000 SF. Fabricating 4,000 lb - 12,000 lb rolls is not an issue. If you have a flexible liner project, prefabrication may be the most economical, efficient solution. Learn more here.;

How Geomembranes Have Been Instrumental in Cleaning Up BP's Oily Mess

The largest marine oil spill accident ever is over--or is it? BP, the energy giant responsible for the blunder at the now infamous Macondo well, located off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico, finally declared the troublesome well officially dead in September 2010. Numerous types of equipment and technologies have been deployed to aid in cleaning the affected Gulf region. Among them are various types of geomembranes. In more ways than one, geomembranes have been vital to curbing the environmental damage caused by the spill. The following information details the distinct applications of geomembrane products in the Gulf cleanup effort. Read more from Bill Shehane and Kim Seaman.
