PondGard Pond Liner Data Sheet
PondGard Pond Liner
is based on EPDM synthetic rubber, a highly flexible stable
material that's not only long-lasting and easy to work with, but
is safe for fish and plant life. It has been used successfully
in a variety of environmental containment applications for more
than a decade.
The Unique Properties Of EPDM Give PondGard Pond LinerThese Unique Benefits:
FRIENDLY POND LINER: PondGard is a highly stable material.
The Firestone PondGard logo imprinted on the EPDM liner indicates
that it is specially formulated to be safe for exposure to fish
and plant life in decorative ponds.
FLEXIBLE: PondGard Pond Liner stays flexible in a variety
of temperatures - from - 40 degrees F to 1 75 degrees F enabling
it to be installed year round. And unlike some liner materials,
PondGard EPDM contains no plasticizers which can embrittle with
age and cause cracks or splits in the material, threatening
fish and animal life.
VERSATILITY: PondGard Pond Liner's flexibility provides
flexibility in pond design, too. Unlike preformed liners, PondGard
can easily be shaped to fit the unique contours of your pond,
giving you much more creative design versatility. In addition,
PondGard Pond Liner comes in a variety of lengths. Multiple
membrane panels can quickly and securely be seamed with the
QuickSeam Tape System to accommodate larger pond lining applications
and unique design elements such as waterfalls.
RESISTANT: PondGard Pond Liner shows outstanding resistance
to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation (UV), ozone
and other environmental conditions - important characteristics
especially along the water line of the pond where the liner
can be exposed.
ELONGATION: PondGard EPDM has high expansion and contraction
characteristics which enable it to conform to objects in the
subgrade. This feature is especially important after the pond
is in service when earth movement, or erosion, could cause roots
and rocks to be dislodged beneath the membrane, placing stress
on the liner. PondGard Pond Liner's high elongation properties
will enable it to stretch over the object.
DURABILITY-. For additional puncture protection, PondGard
EPDM rubber pond liners can be installed in conjunction with
a Firestone Protection Mat. This nonwoven geotextile underlayment
provides a uniform layer of membrane puncture security much
greater than that provided by carpet remnants and old newsprint.
MAINTENANCE: PondGard Pond Liner requires little or no
regular maintenance once installed. Should the need arise, it
is easy to repair in place with a self-adhesive QuickSeam Joint
Cover Patch, minimizing cost and inconvenience.
PondGard EPDM Rubber Pond Liner is backed by a manufacture's
20-year membrane warranty. Liner warranty covers manufacturing
defects at the time of sale. Firestone also warrants that the
Membrane material will not prematurely deteriorate to the point
of failure because of weathering for a period of twenty years
from the date of sale if properly installed, maintained, and
used for the purpose for which the seller intended.
TO INSTALL: PondGard Pond Liner installs quickly and easily.
No special tools or skills are required.
