The difference between hdpe geomembrane and eva geomembrane

What is eva geomembrane?

EVA geomembrane is a geomembrane material made of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer, the full name is Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Geomembrane. EVA is a polymer material with good elasticity and plasticity, which is widely used in the field of geotechnical engineering.

The following are some characteristics and applications of EVA geomembrane:

Physical properties: EVA geomembrane has good flexibility and ductility, can adapt to irregular terrain and deformation, and has certain impact resistance and puncture resistance. At the same time, it also has good elastic recovery properties.

Anti-seepage performance: EVA geomembrane can effectively prevent the penetration and leakage of water, soil, chemical substances, etc., and play a reliable waterproof and isolation role. It is often used in anti-seepage walls, anti-seepage layers and other applications in water conservancy projects, landfills, sewage treatment plants and other fields.


Chemical corrosion performance: EVA geomembrane shows good corrosion resistance to acids, alkalis, salts and other chemical substances. It can be used for a long time in a certain range of chemical environments, and is suitable for some chemical plants, landfills and other places that may be exposed to corrosive substances.

Construction and repair: EVA geomembrane is easy to weld and install, and can be fixed and connected by hot-melt welding or lap joint. For some soil restoration and vegetation protection projects, EVA geomembrane can provide proper isolation and protection, and promote plant growth and soil restoration.

Application fields: EVA geomembrane is widely used in water conservancy projects, landfills, industrial sites, lake wetland restoration, soil covering, drainage engineering and other fields. It is used in anti-seepage, isolation, protection and foundation treatment to improve the safety and sustainability of the project.

In general, EVA geomembrane is a flexible and chemically resistant geomembrane material, suitable for some civil engineering and environmental engineering projects that require high flexibility and adaptability.

The difference between hdpe geomembrane and eva geomembrane

HDPE geomembrane (High-Density Polyethylene Geomembrane) and EVA geomembrane (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Geomembrane) are two common geomembrane materials, and they have some differences in performance and application.

Material composition: HDPE geomembrane is made of high-density polyethylene, while EVA geomembrane is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer. The base polymer composition of the two is different, so there will be some differences in physical and chemical properties.

Physical properties: HDPE geomembrane has high strength and rigidity, can provide good tensile and shear strength, and has high mechanical strength and puncture resistance. The EVA geomembrane is relatively soft and has a certain degree of ductility, has good flexibility and plasticity, and can adapt to some irregular terrains.

Chemical corrosion resistance: HDPE geomembrane has excellent performance in chemical corrosion performance, has strong resistance to acid, alkali, salt and other chemical substances, and can be used stably for a long time under relatively harsh environmental conditions. EVA geomembrane may be weak in the corrosion performance of some chemical substances, and special attention should be paid to the use environment and the chemical substances involved.


Thermal performance: HDPE geomembrane can maintain stable performance in a wide temperature range, and has good heat resistance and low temperature resistance. EVA geomembrane has a low heat distortion temperature and good bonding performance, and is suitable for some application scenarios that require hot-melt welding.

Scope of use: Due to the strong physical properties and chemical corrosion resistance of HDPE geomembrane, it is suitable for some engineering projects that require high strength and durability, such as landfills, water conservancy projects, and foundation treatment. EVA geomembrane is relatively soft and easy to handle, and is suitable for some scenes that require high flexibility and adaptability, such as sewage treatment plants, lake wetland restoration, etc.

In summary, HDPE geomembranes are superior in strength, chemical corrosion resistance and stability, while EVA geomembranes are better in flexibility and ductility. To select the appropriate geomembrane type, factors such as engineering requirements, material characteristics, and budget should be considered comprehensively.
