The results of the exposure testing of 65 lining and related materials to MSW leachate for periods of up to 56 months are reported. The materials include 4 admix materials, 2 asphalt membranes, 50 commercial flexible polymeric membranes, and 9 miscellaneous materials, but exclude soils and clays. The principal thrust of the project was to expose 12 primary liners for 12 and 56 months as barrier specimens in 24 landfill simulators loaded with shredded municipal solid waste and determined the effects of the exposures to leachate on their properties and functioning as liners. The scope of the project was further expanded by the immersion testing of 28 polymeric membranes for up to 31 months at ambient temperature, testing of 14 thermoplastic sheetings for up to 40 weeks in a newly developed pouch test, and testing of the water absorption of 11 membranes for 43 weeks at room temperature and 70C.
