Burke Industries Inc., San Jose, Calif., has formed exclusive partnerships with Colorado Lining International Inc. and Layfield Environmental Systems Corp., allowing the two companies to manage distribution and fabrication of all Burke chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE) geomembrane products and systems.
The agreement does not prevent any other third-party companies from working with Burke’s CSPE products, but Burke will no longer handle direct sales or distribution.
Both CLI and Layfield have long records of working with CSPE geomembranes. The materials have experienced a resurgence in use for long-term designs, such as for reservoir liners and floating cover systems. CSPE products have shown service lives that exceed 25 and 30 years in exposed environments around the world.
