Active Standard ASTM D7865 | Developed by Subcommittee: D35.10
Book of Standards Volume: 04.13
Significance and Use
4.1 For a fabricated panel to be properly used it must be adequately identified and packaged. It must be handled and stored in such a way that its physical property values are not degraded. Failure to follow good practice may result in the unnecessary failure of the fabricated panel in a properly designed application.
1.1 This guide covers guidelines for the identification, packaging, handling, storage and deployment of fabricated geomembrane panels. This guide is not to be considered as all encompassing since each project involving fabricated panels presents its own challenges and special conditions.
1.2 This guide is intended to aid fabricators, suppliers, purchasers, and users of fabricated panels in the identification, packaging, handling, storage, and deployment of fabricated geomembrane panels.
1.3 This guide is written for factory fabricated geomembrane panels only. Other geosynthetics use Guide D4873 as their guide.
