1.1 This specification covers flexible polypropylene reinforced (fPP-R) and nonreinforced (fPP) geomembranes made from flexible polypropylene as the principal polymer prepared by the polymerization of propylene with or without other alpha olefin monomers.
1.2 The tests and property limits used to characterize the sheet are values intended to ensure minimum quality. In-place system design criteria, such as field-seaming strength and material compatibility among others, are factors that should be considered but are beyond the scope of this specification.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
