GCL Bentonite


GCL Bentonite

Geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) incorporate bentonite between layers of geotextile or geomembrane to create a composite barrier system. Bentonite swells upon hydration, forming a impermeable seal, making GCLs effective in landfill liners, containment ponds, and mining applications.

GCLs provide superior containment of fluids and pollutants, reducing the risk of groundwater contamination and offering cost-effective solutions for environmental protection. Their installation is relatively straightforward, enhancing construction efficiency and project timelines. GCLs serve as versatile solutions for various industries, including waste management, construction, and environmental engineering, due to their reliable performance and ease of implementation.


  • Landfill Liners: GCLs are commonly used as part of landfill liner systems to prevent leachate from contaminating groundwater. Bentonite in GCLs swells upon hydration, forming a tight barrier against fluid migration.
  • Containment Ponds: GCLs are employed in containment ponds for industrial waste, wastewater, or agricultural applications. Bentonite provides excellent sealing properties, minimizing the risk of seepage.
  • Mining Applications: GCLs are utilized in mining operations for containment of tailings or to line storage ponds, preventing the release of potentially harmful substances into the environment.
  • Secondary Containment: GCLs serve as secondary containment barriers for above-ground storage tanks, pipelines, or industrial facilities, offering an added layer of protection against leaks and spills.
  • Erosion Control: In erosion control applications, GCLs with bentonite help stabilize slopes and prevent soil erosion by forming a cohesive barrier that resists water flow.
  • Waterproofing: GCLs are employed in various waterproofing applications, such as beneath roadways, building foundations, or beneath geomembranes, where their bentonite component enhances waterproofing capabilities.
  • Packaging – 25 kg, 50 kg, 1mt Bags or customized packing as per requirement.
