Layfield Chosen to Present Technical Paper at Geosynthetics 2017 October 16th, 2017 in Santiago, Chile


Mike DaSilva, Layfield USA Sales Manager, was chosen to present at this years Geosynthetics 2017 Conference in Santiago, Chile.  Mike DaSilva presented a paper that outlines results of a geomembrane study being done by Layfield based on a new geomembrane for chlorinated water containment. 

The 3-year study, funded in part by a government grant, is investigating a new class of high performance high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins to see what new classes of geomembranes can be developed. This subject of this paper is chlorine resistance. One of the resins being investigated has shown significantly better resistance to oxidation in chlorinated water testing and those tests are detailed below.
