Bentonite mats

Bentonite mats

Geosynthetic clay liners (GCL)

Bentonite mats Definition

Geosynthetic clay liners (GCL) are machine-manufactured hydraulic membranes made from high swelling natrium bentonite and geosynthetics that are secured together in a uniform layer providing shear resistance.

Our preferred bentonite mats

We exclusively use bentonite mats that are needle-punched across their whole surface. We prefer installing mats with self-sealing overlaps.

Bentonite mats Benefits of the bentonite mats we supply

Bentonite mats have many different applications. By using GCLs, significant savings can often be made in comparison with conventional mineral seals. Needling techniques increase the friction angle. Bentonite mats are not sensitive to settlement and are simple, fast and cheap to install.

Bentonite mats Applications
  • Embankment and dyke construction
  • Reservoirs
  • Landfill construction
