1.1 This specification covers polyethylene and ethylene copolymer plastic sheeting, 0.20 mm through 0.30 mm (8 through 20 mils) in thickness, for lining ponds, canals, and reservoirs.
1.2 The tests used to characterize the sheeting are intended to ensure good workmanship and quality, and are not necessarily adequate for design purposes in view of the importance of environmental factors and specific performance objectives. Tests have been selected primarily with essentially neutral aqueous systems in mind. Other tests may be necessary to establish chemical resistance and durability under the conditions of a particular application.
1.3 For information on installation techniques, users of this specification are referred to the literature.
