Quality of geosynthetics

Quality of geosynthetics

During the installation of geosynthetic, the quality of the fusion joints is of crucial importance. The quality of the bond of the weld surface can be assured through a number of measures:
• check for preparations and weld parameters before starting the welding process
• check during the welding process
• visual and mechanical investigation of the welds after the welding process

Services QS Testing has laboratory facilities to prepare and test plastic membranes and fusion joints. Our test experts test welds in the field (on a spot check basis) as well as test welds according to the applicable DIN directive and ISO standards, including:
• ISO 527 - Tensile testing of plastic sheeting and fusion joints
• ISO 8256 - Determination of tensile-impact strength of plastic sheets and fusion joints
• DIN 53357 - Testing of plastics sheets; adhesion test
• ASTM D 5397 – Constant Load Test on plastic fusion joints

Fast result

QS Testing understands that the test results need to be available as quickly as possible. We coordinate the delivery times with you so that your results are available as soon as 24 hours to a few days after the test.
