MicroDrain® Liner

AGRU MicroDrain is a combined barrier liner and drainage media unique to the industry and is the latest culmination of AGRU America’s geomembrane R&D. MicroDrain is manufactured with either high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE).

MicroSpike® Liner

AGRU MicroSpike® is the only HDPE and LLDPE geomembrane liner featuring consistent texture and friction angle values. The material of choice in containment applications where slope stability is critical.


Quality Assurance
Strict quality control of incoming raw materials and factory production of geomembranes ensures the continuous production of high quality Agru America products. All Agru America geomembranes are manufactured to meet or exceed the test values, frequency of testing and functional requirements of the Geosynthetic Institute Specifications GRI GM 13 (HDPE) and GRI GM 17 (LLDPE) protocol. 

Highest quality installation of Agru America’s smooth or structured geomembranes is of paramount importance to provide the project owner the level of security the containment requires. Welding on site is performed by experienced installation contractors using hot wedge and extrusion welding machines in accordance with established installation and quality control procedures. We have supplied a list of installation contractors and our quality control guidelines.
