Project Snapshot | Nitra-Seal Ensures Healthy Work Environment at New Electric Vehicle Plant
A leading automobile manufacturer built a new 520,000-square-foot electric vehicle facility on the site of one of its former automotive manufacturing plants in Detroit, Michigan. Considering the site’s history, and the potential for lingering solvent, fuel, or other subsurface chemical impacts, the auto company was proactive in applying a proven and effective contaminant vapor intrusion solution to ensure a healthy working environment for its employees. Ultimately, Nitra-Seal® Nitrile-Advanced Contaminant Vapor Barrier with TerraVent™ Low Profile Venting System, was selected by the construction project team, offering the best economic value for the level of VI protection provided.

Product Brochure | Nitra-Seal® Advanced Nitrile Composite Barrier System
Nitra-Seal employs a chemically resistant nitrile latex. Nitrile is recognized throughout the environmental engineering industry as being chemically resistant and is often used in personal protective equipment when working on hazardous waste sites (e.g. nitrile gloves). Laboratory testing has shown up to 10X higher chemical resistance when compared to any other vapor barrier material on the market.
Business Wire Article | Patented Encapsulated Metalized Film Protects Against Corrosion and Ensures 100x More Chemical Resistance Than HDPE
Recently, Land Science announced its newly patented design encapsulating metalized film in an advanced composite membrane, protecting it against corrosion. This innovative reinforced geomembrane system, which is installed with Nitra-Core, a nitrile-modified asphalt spray coating, provides 100 times more chemical resistance than other solutions. The patented design is integral to the enhanced protection built into Land Science’s popular MonoShield and TerraShield contaminant vapor barrier systems.
