Bituminous Geo Membrane (BGM) is one of the most advanced and innovative lining solutions of the geomembrane family used in water management systems. Bitumen was primarily used for waterproofing of irrigation canals in Mesopotamia, 4,000 years BC. Sections of these waterproofed canals are still in existence today. It is an excellent waterproofing material because of its very low permeability of the order of 10^-14 m/s. It is manufactured by impregnating a non woven polyester geotextile with an elastomeric bitumen compound. In addition, the geomembrane is coated with sand on top to enhance UV resistance and an anti-root film at the bottom side to prevent the vegetation growth.BGM is commonly used for the lining of canals, power channels, reservoirs, ponds, landfills, mining applications and other hydraulic structures.
we offer a comprehensive range of Bituminous Geo Membrane Lining solutions that are specifically designed to address the challenges of water management with efficiency, reliability, and sustainability. Our top-quality Membranes are manufactured using the latest technologies and adhere to international standards, ensuring seamless waterproofing for a variety of applications.
Bituminous Geo Membrane Linings provide unmatched waterproofing capabilities, creating a robust barrier against water seepage, leaks, and moisture penetration.
Bituminous geomembranes are known for their durability and long lifespan. They exhibit excellent resistance to weathering, UV radiation, and chemical exposure. This ensures that the lining remains effective over time and ensuring long-lasting performance.
BGM exhibits high strength, minimizing the risk of punctures and tears. It doesn’t requires any geotextile layer beneath nor any covering layer above it in case of its installation in canals.
It comes with an anti-root film at the bottom which prevents root penetration, vegetation growth and maintain the integrity of the lining.
Specially formulated to withstand prolonged exposure to UV radiation without degradation.
BGM has excellent resistance to chemicals present in the water, including pollutants and salts. This resistance helps maintain the integrity of the lining system and ensures long-term performance, even in the presence of aggressive water conditions.
Various factors like water loss penetration, additional discharge carrying capacity, easy maintenance, improved structure safety etc make it cost effective in long term. Its ease of installation also contributes to overall cost savings.
The flexibility of geo membrane linings allows for easy installation, as it can be installed by training local construction labours.
Bituminous geomembranes are generally considered to be environmentally friendly. They are inert and do not release harmful substances into the water, ensuring water quality is maintained. It is suitable for portable water.
Capable of handling a wide range of temperatures due to its lower thermal coefficient.
BGM allows to carry higher discharge and lower the sediment deposition due to higher velocity in canals.
Bituminous geomembrane (BGM) lining offers a wide range of applications across various industries due to its excellent properties, durability, and effectiveness in preventing water seepage and leakage. Some of the primary applications of bituminous geomembrane lining include:
BGM lining is employed in canals to minimize seepage and improve water distribution efficiency. It ensures that water reaches the intended areas without unnecessary loss.
Power channels play a critical role in conveying water for hydropower generation, and it requires perfect solution to avoid the water losses. BGM is an ideal lining solution because of its low permeability and ease of installation.
BGM lining is extensively used to line reservoirs, ponds, and lakes to prevent water seepage and ensure water containment. It acts as a protective barrier, reducing water loss and ensuring efficient water management.
Bituminous geomembrane (BGM) is widely used for dam waterproofing due to its excellent waterproofing properties and durability. When applied as a lining system, BGM provides an effective barrier to prevent water seepage through the dam structure, ensuring the safety and stability of the dam and its surroundings.
BGM lining is widely used in landfills and waste containment facilities to prevent the leaching of hazardous substances into into the soil and groundwater. It helps in maintaining the integrity of the landfill and protecting the environment from potential pollution.
BGM lining is utilized in various industrial applications, such as secondary containment for chemical storage facilities, wastewater treatment plants, and industrial ponds. It acts as a reliable barrier, preventing leaks and protecting surrounding areas from potential contamination.
BGM lining is employed in mining operations to line tailings ponds, heap leach pads, and storage facilities. It aids in containing potentially harmful substances and chemicals used in mining processes, thus minimizing the environmental impact.
BGM lining is suitable for fishponds, shrimp farms, and other aquaculture applications.It ensures water retention, prevents seepage, and maintains the required water quality for the aquatic species.
BGM lining is applied in wastewater treatment plants and ponds to prevent the seepage of treated or untreated wastewater into the surrounding soil and groundwater.
In the refurbishment of aging reservoirs, BGM lining can be used to extend their lifespan and restore their water containment capabilities.
