How does downgauging work?


Client Case – Liner film

For a customer who buys Liners from us, we have realized a 50% thickness reduction. In the thinner version, HDPE has the same degree of water vapor permeability as its thicker version. This is important because it concerns cement, powders, etc. Gravity remains intact because the paper on the outside of the liner is the carrier. Want to know more about our liner film? Take a look at the product page liner film.
