APPLICATIONS – AQUACULTURE
Geosynthetic lining systems are frequently used in aquaculture projects. Typical applications are:
The lining of pond walls with HDPE is usually a quick job. Pond depths are usually such that 8m wide rolls of HDPE are a close fit to the bank depth, allowing for anchoring at the top and the bottom in an anchor trench with no longitudinal welding required. Generally, 1.0mm HDPE is used although 0.75mm is also common. The 1.00mm thickness has greater resistance to abrasion.
Life expectancy of HDPE can be 20 years. We have many applications which are older than 20 years and still perform adequately, showing minimum deterioration due to sun exposure.
