Why is Liner UV Protection Important for Different Types of Applications

Reinforced polyethylene (RPE) and reinforced polypropylene (RPP) liners are used in a variety of different industries for many different applications. Both of these types of liners have similar characteristics that make them the best choice for liners of all different kinds. From high-quality, durable liners that are puncture resistant to UV protection, the RPE and RPP material is great for many different applications. Liner UV protection is an important characteristic to consider especially in agriculture and for irrigation applications.

Why Liner UV Protection is Important

Liner UV protection is important for the longevity of service for your projects. Liners exposed to the weather and elements may be more susceptible to wear and could degrade faster than parts that are always beneath water and soil. Choosing a liner with UV resistance and protection is important for maintaining the quality and longevity of the product. RPP and RPE liners demonstrate excellent weathering properties including UV-resistance and UV stability. Liner UV protection is especially important when liners are exposed to the sun. Liner UV protection is important along the water line of the pond where the liner is exposed to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, ozone and other environmental conditions. Liner UV protection is important to material engineers because UV degradation directly impacts the service life of the product. Choosing a liner with built in UV protection, such as RPE or RPP, decreases the chances of discoloration, viscosity changes, cracking and loss of adhesion.

Industries and Applications

Liner UV protection is important in a variety of industries, especially agriculture, commercial, energy, environmental, recreation and residential. Some of the applications that liner UV protection is important include:
  • Irrigation ponds and water containment
  • Wastewater ponds for food processing plants
  • Retention and detention ponds
  • Fire retention ponds
  • Stormwater ponds
  • Golf course water hazards
UV protection is essential in ponds with water levels that rise and fall regularly. It’s important to use liners that are UV-resistant when exposed to the weather. Using UV-resistant liners increases the longevity of the service of the product and protects against UV radiation and its harmful effects.
