100% PTFE GEOMEMBRANE LINERS ELIMINATE CONCERN FOR CHEMICAL ATTACK AND DEGRADATION
PTFE geomembranes are formulated with Teflon, a highly non-reactive and pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer, generally used in applications requiring the highest purity, and resistance to strong acids, alkalis, aggressive solvents and high temperatures. TCI’s unique cross-ply PFTE-reinforced PTFE membranes are the most chemically inert of all commercial geomembranes.

SELF-REINFORCING PTFE LINER CAN BE PREFABRICATED INTO PANELS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES FOR RAPID FIELD DEPLOYMENT
CrossFilm™ geomembrane liner is a 100% PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) designed for the most challenging applications in the industry. Because of its unique multidirectional strength and stress-crack resistance, CrossFilm is a self-reinforced liner that can be fabricated into all shapes and sizes.  Additional CrossFilm liner also have tremendous flexing capability, easily outlasting HDPE, LLDPE, RPP, PVC-KEE and other scrim-supported liners in high flex applications.
