Important Notes:

  1. S: Satisfactory, geomembrane is resistance to the given chemical at the given concentration and temperature. No mechanical or chemical degradation is encountered.
  2. L: Limited, geomembrane may be attacked by some factors, concentration, pressure and temperature should affect the performance of geomembrane.
  3. NS: Not Satisfactory, geomembrane is not resistance to the given chemical, concentration and temperature. Mechanical or chemical degradation is encountered.
  4. Sat. sol: Saturated aqueous solution, prepared at 20 C.
  5. Sol: Aqueous solution at a concentration higher than 10%, but not saturated.
  6. Dil. sol: Dilute aqueous solution at a concentration is equal to or lower than 10%.
  7. Solution concentration listed are expressed as a percentage by weight, in general in the table, common chemical names are used.
