Water Barrier

As a barrier JP Geotex used with any geotechnical engineering related material so as to control fluid (or gas) migration in a human-made project, structure, or system.

Required Properties for an effective Water Barrier:

Geosynthetics //

GCL

Applications

JP Geosynthetic clay made by jeevan consist of two layers each of woven and non-woven geotextiles which are needled together enclosing a layer of sodium bentonite having a very low hydraulic conductivity.

The GCL has very low hydraulic low condivity with a hight montmorillonite content of more than 70%. thereby having a very high swell index. The resulting lower permeability slows the rate of seepage out of the landfill.
