Test Method Title

Accelerated Weathering of Geomembranes Using a Fluorescent UVA Device

Reference Number

GRI GM 11

Material

Geomembrane

Test Property

Percent retained OIT, breaking strength, breaking elongation and melt index

Description of Test

Geomembrane specimens are alternately exposed to ultraviolet light and to condensation for a number of pre-determined cycles. Specimens are periodically removed from exposure and tested for OIT, breaking strength, breaking elongation and melt index. A determination is made as to the percent retained of each property evaluated.
