Geomembrane protection fabric
A sturdy geotextile that is permeable to gases and liquids. The fabric was designed for use in landfill construction where it is placed on one or both sides of the membrane filter for protection against punctures. Geomembrane protection fabrics can also be used for drainage and leachate systems as they pass fluids but restrict solid particles.
