BMI Coverland forms part of the BMI Group, a Standard Industries company, the largest manufacturer of flat and pitched roofing and waterproofing solutions throughout Europe. As of February 2019 the BMI Icopal brand was officially available to the South African waterproofing community.
BMI Icopal offers a standard 10 year waterproofing warranty on all its product solutions ensuring that they are manufactured ‘Fit for Purpose’. BMI Icopal brings innovations like NOx-Active bitumen waterproofing membrane that absorbs nitrogen oxide (NOx) and thereby depollutes the air we breathe. Furthermore, the ‘Metal – Faced’ bitumen membrane range extends the longevity of the bitumen membrane through the application of an embossed thermo-stable attached metal foil.
The initial BMI Icopal product included Paraplast – a high performance range of Atatic Polypropylene (APP) modified bitumen torch- on membranes. The bitumen grade used to produce the Paraplast waterproofing range has good U.V resistance, elasticity, flexibility and heat resistance making the range the contractor’s choice.
The Paraplast waterproofing range were introduced at very competitive pricing and stock is available immediately. The rest of the company’s multi-products portfolio will be rolled out over the next year.
