Dam liner Types
Dam liners types are categorized as HDPE, PVC and LLDPE Dam liners. HDPE Dam liners are the most stable with excellent UV and weather resistance. They are the best dam liners for long term projects. PVC Dam liners are soft, light and easy to deliver and install. PVC liners are however not stable hence not advisable for long term projects. LLDPE Dam liners are soft and easy to install. Unfortunately, they have less tensile strength which makes them susceptible to deformations and tears.
Grekkon dam liners are black in colour and are available in fixed widths of 8m and lengths of up to 250m. However, during dam liner installation, we do customized welding (or machine joining) to fit your reservoir size. Grekkon only supplies HDPE dam lining in Kenya.
Note that dam lining material obtained from virgin materials will last for more than 10 years while those from recycled materials can last for less than 5 years.
