Teranap is resistant to tearing

Teranap is homogeneously reinforced. This gives it unmatched tear resistance, both for initial installation and long term use.

This makes Teranap the optimal lining solution for applications involving shear stresses from flowing water such as canals, channels, dam outlets and drainage swales.

Teranap 331 can withstand 500N of tear force compared to just 250N for 2.0mm HDPE and 66N for most grades of EPDM.
