Geosynthetics June/July 2022 - 35

GMA elects Selander
as vice chair
The Geosynthetic Materials Association
(GMA) elected Daniel Selander,
who handles sales and technical support
at Willacoochee Industrial Fabrics
Inc. (WINFAB USA), as vice chair of
GMA's executive council. Selander will
serve out the term of Steve Thaxton,
former geosynthetics business leader
at Owens Corning, who stepped down
in December 2021 when his company
streamlined its geosynthetics business
to a made-to-order operation. Selander
started his career in textile manufacturing
with Burlington Industries, holding
management positions in quality
and process control. In 2001 he joined
the geosynthetics world, taking a job
at LINQ Industrial Fabrics Inc., where
he first managed process and quality.
He moved into sales in 2005. Selander
joined WINFAB USA in 2019.

accomplishments in design and manufacturing
incorporating specialty fabrics
by honoring companies through the
IAAs. The 42-category competition is an
excellent opportunity for IFAI members
and nonmembers to display work, gain

Golder geotechnical
construction materials lab
opens in Georgia
A Golder Associates Inc. construction
materials testing services laboratory
destroyed by arson in March 2021 has
been relocated, reopening Feb. 21 with
the assistance of Golder's parent company,
WSP USA, a leading engineering
and professional services consultancy.
The new lab is in Norcross, Ga., northeast
of Atlanta. Golder, which is now
integrated with WSP as one company,
partnered with WSP architects prior to
the companies' merger to design a new
laboratory space for the geosynthetic,
geotechnical, aggregate and concrete labs
to operate safely and efficiently. The new
facility is one of six Golder laboratories
in the United States.
Layfield introduces HydraNet
geonets/geocomposites
Layfield Group Ltd. has launched
HydraNet, a premium line of geonets and
geocomposites that the company describes
as cost-effective and environmentally conscious
alternatives to aggregate drains.
HydraNet geonet is constructed from
either two strands (biplanar) or three
strands (triplanar) of high-density polyethylene
(HDPE) extruded into a netlike
sheet. HydraNet geocomposites consist
of geonet laminated to a nonwoven
geotextile to form a drainage medium
that also provides filtration and resists
sediment from entering the geonet and
clogging. Layfield's HydraNet is made in
North America at the company's ISO 9001
registered facility.
