    New Guide for Identification, Storage, and Handling of Geomembrane Rolls

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D35.02 | Committee D35 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide provides guidelines for the identification and packaging of rolled geomembranes by the manufacturer and for the handling and storage of geomembranes by the end user. This guide is not to be considered as all encompassing since each project involving geomembranes presents its own challenges and special conditions. Geomembrane samples are often taken at manufacturer, supplier, or at the job site primarily for the purpose of conformance testing and verification. These samples should be properly labeled for identification purposes. 1.2 This guide is intended to aid manufacturers, suppliers, purchasers, and users of geomembranes for identification, handling, and storage. 1.3 This guide is not applicable for factory fabricated panels or accordin folded geomembrane due to a different set of identifications for the panel by the fabricator. 1.4 This guide is also applicable to geomembrane samples. 1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.6 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.

    These guidelines are for the identification and packaging of rolled geomembranes. This guide is intended to aid manufacturers, suppliers, purchasers, and users of rolled geomembranes. It gives specifics not found in ASTM D4873 on Geosynthetic, which is too general for some in the D35.02 task group.
