Layfield USA becomes an American Distributor for BOSTD Geogrid Product Line

September 12, 2018

Layfield USA is pleased to announce we have added the BOSTD geogrid line for our Westcoast geosynthetic business.  Layfield has worked closely with BOSTD in Canada for the past 10 years providing this line of high-quality geogrids into multiple civil construction and infrastructure projects.  Both Layfield and BOSTD are excited about the opportunity and look forward to working together in the USA.   
 
The BOSTD product line will have the support of Layfield’s Technical Sales Group in the United States to assist engineers and contractors. Moving forward, Layfield will also be stocking the BOSTD geogrids in its San Diego and Seattle locations to serve our customers.
 
BOSTD Biaxial geogrid quality is ensured with the use of prime grade PP resins and the addition of carbon black masterbatch for stability. The manufacturing occurs under strictly controlled conditions with the combination of extruding high-quality sheet, accurate punching and stretching in two directions. The process gives well-balanced structures with consistently high tensile strength and stiffness. The thick rectangular cross-section ribs and integral joint structure give regular apertures that interlock with aggregates, confining them and dramatically improving their load carrying capacity on soft ground. The products are inert from corrosion by all chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and salts normally found in soil and do not suffer from a biological attack.
 
Layfield is currently celebrating its 40th Anniversary as one of North America’s most respected Geomembrane Containment and Geosynthetic Solution providers.  Over the last 40 years, Layfield has experienced significant growth through innovation, product quality, product expansion, geographic expansion and meaningful partnerships with other industry leaders including BOSTD.
