Service life analysis of geosynthetics

The lifespan of the plastic geosynthetics used is subject to environmental factors, among other things. QS Testing’s laboratory facilities include the ability to investigate the expected lifespan of objects including plastic materials and constructions.
As an example of this, investigation is done to determine the expected service life of the HD-PE geosynthetic used. A starting point for this can be conducting long-duration tests that enable us to make a statement about the expected lifespan for a period of at least 100 years.


An important part of the investigation to determine the service life is long-duration exposure of the materials to be assessed. This investigation is based on a scientifically supported research method that has been established by TNO Industry & Technology. The time that the investigation processes will take depends in part on the long-duration exposures required. We will consult with you to agree on the entire investigation time at the start of the process.
