|The Unique Properties Of EPDM Give Firestone
PondGard EPDM Rubber Liners These Unique Benefits:
FISH 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.
PondGard Pond Liner stays flexible in a variety of temperatures -
from - 40 ° F to 175° F enabling it to be installed year round. And
unlike some liner materials, PondGard EPDM contains no plasticizers
which can become brittle with age and cause cracks or splits in the
material, threatening fish and animal life.
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.
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.
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.
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
PondGard EPDM Rubber Pond Liner is backed by a 20-year membrane
EASY TO INSTALL:
PondGard Pond Liner installs quickly and easily. No special tools or
skills are required.
