What makes Dam liners effective Lining Materials?

Dam liners are waterproof

The materials are compacted and non-porous for holding water and liquids without allowing leakage.

Tensile Strength

Dam liners have a high tensile strength that resists tear and wear. In case of stretch on pulls it cannot break.

UV resistance

Dam liners can resist high temperatures and low temperatures as well. It has high boiling and very low freezing points.

High Durability

HDPE dam liners are made from durable Polyethylene materials. They can last for 30–50 years depending on the thickness and usage.


Dam liners have a high flexibility that allows easier installation and use on any shape of dams or landscapes.


HDPE liners are heavy materials that can hold a lot of weight of underlying water without being washed away.

Spread the dam liner on the surface of the reservoir.

Cutting the HDPE Dam Liner

Cutting the liner is the next step. The essence of cutting is to enhance easier fit and lining in sharp walls of square shaped dams.


Weld the dam liner to enhance waterproof joints. Welding is important when joining dam liners at places where one piece cannot cover the dam surface. Use a welding machine to burn and join pieces of dam liners.

Actual Installation and Anchorage

When installing ensure the liner has an extra 1 m extension for anchorage on the ground surface around the dam. During anchorage, tuck in the extension to the trench around the excavation and cover it with soil.

Pumping Water

The entire reservoir is now completely covered with a dam liner. Proceed to Pump water for storage in the dam.

Recommendations for Perfect HDPE Dam liner Installation

  1. Ensure the measurements of the dam are done accurately so that we provide an accurate size of dam liner.
  2. The excavation should be done perfect. The edges of the dam and surface should be levelled to ensure the liner touches the surface evenly.
  3. All rocks and roots should be removed to prevent damage to the material.
  4. Ensure the dam is well fenced and protected.
  5. Water needs to be stored immediately to protect the liner from sunlight. Should not be left without water for long time.
  6. During Welding ensure the HDPE dam liners overlap by 10-15 cm for formation of a secure connection.
