What factors affect the lifespan of geomembranes?

The lifespan of geomembranes is influenced by factors including material quality, exposure to UV light, chemical exposure, mechanical stresses, and installation quality. High-quality materials with UV stabilizers and chemical resistance additives tend to have longer lifespans.

Continuous exposure to sunlight can degrade the material over time unless it's specifically designed to be UV resistant. Similarly, exposure to aggressive chemicals can affect the membrane's integrity, depending on its chemical compatibility. Mechanical stresses, such as punctures, tears, or excessive stretching, can also compromise its effectiveness.
