Specialty film and sheeting manufacturer Raven Industries Inc.'s Engineered Films division recently added a new wide-width fabrication capacity at its Madison, S.D., facility.
Raven's new 150-inch wide lay flat winding capability will allow it to decrease the product lead time of geomembrane liners, custom grain covers and other converted products. The Sioux Falls, S.D.-based company said it meets industry demands for prefabricated geomembranes in accordion and c-folded panels.
The company noted that large custom panels will save time and money onsite by decreasing the number of days needed for installation. It also said that it has case studies of actual applications, including one as a rapid deployment for hydrocarbon containment.
Raven Industries started in 1956 and is publically traded on the NASDAQ.
