Novedades Agrícolas calculates, designs and installs reservoirs for water storage in the different irrigation systems.



The materials employed for waterproofing the reservoirs are mainly high-density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Both materials are very resistant to aging and to root growth and/or tearing, and in both cases it is convenient install geotextile, which serves as a base and support and endows them with high perforation resistance.

The outdoor membranes for waterproofing are suitable for reservoirs, lakes, dams, canals, terraces, etc. Moreover, they have an excellent stability to U.V. light rays and they are manufactured from virgin resins that guarantee durability.


HDPE Characteristic:

  • Common thickness: 1.5 mm.

  • The welding is usually done with hot air and by extrusion.

  • The support surface has to be stable, clean, smooth and free from piercing objects.

  • It is highly stable to U.V. rays and therefore highly resistant to outdoor conditions.

  • It is resistant to swelling, rotting and aging.

  • It tolerates perforation well on a rigid support.

  • It resists roots according to DIN standard 4062 part I

  • It withstands asphalts, oils and tars.

  • It has good resistance to “stress cracking”

  • It is a product that can be recycled for other applications and is respectful with the Environment.


PVC Characteristics:

  • Common thickness: 1.2 mm

  • Easy and agreeable to use

  • Excellent capacity for adapting to irregularities on the ground

  • Adaptability to the diverse forms and complementary elements: drains, trim, wall finishes, etc.

  • Perfect joints by means of hot-air welding

  • The placement surfaces must be clean, smooth and free of piercing objects.
