The function of flexible membrane liners (FML's) is to contain waste and leachates. FML's based on synthetic polymeric materials may be degraded and permeated by the fluids that must be contained. Qualitative and quantitative information on the chemical resistance of FML's materials has been collected from vendors and technical publications and compiled into a data base. Criteria for assessing the information were developed and, in the basis of these criteria. FML ratings were developed for each chemical-material pair for which there were data. The ratings are not appropriate, however, as a basis for selection or rejection of a FML since they do not take into account the intended application, nor have they been substantiated in field experience.
