Better protection starts with better geomembrane materials
We only have one planet, so we need to help protect it.
Geomembranes offer a critical line of defense against chemicals, toxins and other harmful materials entering the earth’s soil and water. By forming a barrier that helps prevent the transmission of contaminants, they play an essential role in protecting the earth’s most precious resources.
Raising the bar for geomembrane innovation and performance
We’re constantly working to develop next generation polyethylene (PE) solutions that combine improved performance, processability and sustainability – helping meet and exceed expectations for a wide range of geomembrane applications.
INTREPID™ 2499 Bimodal HDPE Resin offers exceptional performance and longer life expectancy in highly oxidative environments compared to traditional, incumbent materials. The sophisticated molecular architecture of this premium high density polyethylene (HDPE) enables outstanding resistance to high temperatures, chemicals, corrosion, slow crack growth (SCG), tearing, punctures and abrasion.
Additional benefits include improved toughness and durability at industry standard gauges; stable, long-lasting anti-oxidant protection; strong tensile properties; and consistent processing with excellent melt strength and bubble stability.
These features – along with ease and versatility of installation – help INTREPID™ 2499 support the development of virtually leak-free environmental containment systems in applications such as high temperature landfill, heap leach pads, mining, chlorinated drinking water and even leachate collection pipes.
Our “workhorse” grades, such as DOW™ DGDA-5310 NT MDPE Resin and DOW™ MDPE NG 6895, are comparable alternatives to incumbents that combine excellent chemical, corrosion and abrasion resistance; light weight and flexibility; a wide service temperature range and consistent processing.
And our ongoing R&D pipeline is focused on breaking new ground with even more innovative developments.
Building a stronger future together
Decades of proven experience in resin design, film and PE pipe application development put a wealth of knowledge and expertise to work for our geomembrane collaboration partners.
In addition to offering extremely high levels of toughness, durability and service life, our proprietary bimodal PE technology is backed by global production; technical service and development; and developmental, analytical and testing capabilities.
Outstanding quality control throughout our manufacturing and supply chain help ensure consistent, high quality materials with low levels of gels and other impurities. And our advanced bimodal technology can be used with any type of polyethylene – including commonly-used geomembrane materials such as HDPE, MDPE and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) – enabling development of tailored formulations.
Helping protect our planet
INTREPID™ Bimodal Polyethylene Resins are engineered for extreme toughness, durability and longevity in geomembrane applications – creating opportunities to not only reduce the amount of waste entering the environment, but also the frequency of replacement and associated environmental risks.
We’re extremely committed to helping protect our world and excited about collaborating to develop innovative, sustainable geomembrane solutions.
