The Public Health and Safety Organization has certified the Aquamaster® line of geomembranes from Intertape Polymer Group® Inc., Montreal, Canada, to NSF/ANSI 61. ANSI 61 is a certification by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) given to products that fulfill the regulatory requirements for potable water transport in the US and Canada.
IPG offers durable geomembrane products for lining and directing water flow in retention ponds, canals, catch basins, ditches and other water holding areas. Aquamaster geomembranes are also used in industrial applications such as conventional and non-conventional oil & gas extraction, above ground tank liners, evaporative ponds and other applications where a high strength, durable barrier is needed, and impoundments. These woven coated fabric geomembrane liners are made with exclusive polyolefin coatings for maximum toughness and abrasion resistance.
Aquamaster geomembrane composition and materials were reviewed and tested by the NSF for potential contaminants and water leaching. IPG’s Truro, Nova Scotia, manufacturing facility was audited to verify that proper controls were in place to prevent any contamination of the geomembranes, as well as the materials. Moving forward, this inspection will be done on a yearly basis in order to maintain the certification.
