Product Features

2X Puncture Resistance

Reduce punctures and leaks with Owens Corning RhinoMat Reinforced Composite Geomembranes (RCG). With double the puncture resistance of standard 60mil HDPE*, RhinoMat RCG is engineered to minimize punctures and leaks.

Strong UV Stability

UV-resistant, highly flexible and lightweight construction of RhinoMat RCG provides maximum performance in many different climates and environmental conditions.

Easy to Handle

The highly flexible and lightweight construction of RhinoMat RCG helps make it easier to handle and install than conventional HDPE.
