Reference Number

ASTM D6496

Material

Geosynthetic Clay Liner

Test Property

Bonding peel strength

Description of Test

The top and bottom layers of a geosynthetic clay liner are gripped individually in tensile grips and pulled at a constant rate of extension by a tensile testing machine until the top and bottom layers of the specimen separate. The average bonding peel strength of the test specimen can be calculated from machine scales, dials, recording charts or an interface computer.
