Thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes

Roof covering

Thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes


When it comes to covering the large-area roofs of industrial and commercial buildings, thermoplastic roofing membranes have the edge. And in renovation projects they also have considerable advantages.


Companies belonging to ESWA (European Single Ply Waterproofing Association), represent 85% of the market for thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes. PVC accounts for about 2/3 of the roofing membranes laid and other plastics for the remaining 1/3.



Plastics roof covering: The material for maximum design freedom


Arts centres, leisure buildings, museum buildings, schools, administration buildings, company head offices - what they all have in common is that they command public attention. Consequently, their design is not confined to the façade, but also extends to the roof - in most cases flat roofs.


Thermoplastic membranes are the trendsetters on flat roofs. With their technical advantages, they lead the way and can be found in all areas where large or specially shaped surfaces have to be waterproofed quickly and reliably. Thermoplastic roofing membranes are available in a wide range of materials with a multitude of fastening methods and offer maximum design freedom. With highly tear-resistant re-enforcements they are tension-resistant yet sufficiently flexible. In terms of dimensional stability, thermoplastic waterproofing systems are unmatched, withstanding extreme temperatures when other systems have long failed. They follow the sweep of curved roof surfaces and closely hug the finer contours. The result is neat and homogeneous seams, that are capable of taking some beating.


From loose laying to full-surface bonding - there's no limit to design freedom either when it comes to renovation.


Colour design, visually appealing surfaces, neatly executed details - that's where thermoplastic roofing membranes excel. More and more designers and customers are therefore opting for thermoplastic roofing membranes produced with constant quality on highly advanced machinery.

Environmental Policy


The recycling program ROOFCOLLECT ® is well established and “waterproof”. It is not just put down on paper, but works in practice. Secondary raw material is generated from the end-of-life roofing membranes without damaging nature or the environment. Thus a multitude of new products to protect buildings and grounds in a secure and long-term way is being placed on the market.
