Fire Training Pits & Deicing Impoundments
XR® Geomembrane Applications
Airports utilize geomembranes to protect groundwater supplies from pollution generated in fire training exercises and in de-icing operations. XR-5® is widely used in these applications because of its resistance to jet fuel, glycols and acetate de-icers. Because the XR-5 has low thermal expansion-contraction properties, it does not require soil cover and can be left UV exposed. Read about actual examples of this application below.
