MicroSpike® Liner

Product Overview

AGRU America’s MicroSpike® is the only HDPE and LLDPE geomembrane liner featuring consistent texture and friction angle values. This makes MicroSpike the material of choice in containment applications where slope stability is critical. As the leading North American manufacturer of structured and embossed geomembranes, AGRU’s patented manufacturing process, flat die-cast extrusion, allows the company to produce the most consistent smooth or textured geomembranes.

Competitively priced with value-added advantages. MicroSpike is absent of the VELCRO® effect, which reduces installation costs. The geomembrane liner design also minimizes on-site quality control expenses and third-party quality assurance costs.

Technical Aspects

MicroSpike geomembranes are manufactured to meet or exceed current industry standards including GRI GM 13 (HDPE) and GRI GM 17 (LLDPE) test values, frequency of testing and functional requirements. The MicroSpike textured geomembrane has smooth edges to allow for high-quality thermal fusion welding between adjacent sheets. All AGRU geomembrane liners are rolled on solid plastic pipe cores to ensure ease of installation without damage to the rolled material.

Product Solutions

High-Density Polyethylene MicroSpike Liner

Highly reliable geomembrane liner with a number of advantages over traditional blown film textured geomembranes. Reproducible friction angles ensure that MicroSpike will meet or exceed project design requirements. Micro spikes are integrated within the geomembrane, contributing to the material’s high interface shear strength, allowing flexibility and stability during protective cover material placement. The textured asperity height is not only consistent but higher than competitive textured products.

Linear Low-Density Polyethylene MicroSpike Liner

Highly reliable geomembrane liner with a number of advantages over traditional blown film textured geomembranes. Reproducible friction angles ensure that MicroSpike will meet or exceed project design requirements. Micro spikes are integrated within the geomembrane, contributing to the material’s high interface shear strength, allowing flexibility and stability during protective cover material placement. The textured asperity height is not only consistent but higher than competitive textured products.

The LLDPE MicroSpike geomembrane liner also features a 400% Elongation at Break (HD 350 percent), in an industry where the standard is only 250 percent (HD 100 percent).
