Polymer-Bitumen membranes are sheets of distilled bitumen modified with polymers, either APP (Atactic Polypropylene) or SBS (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene), reinforced with a polyester or fiberglass mat.

Their quest for quality did not start yesterday, in 1963, Professor Giulio Natta created a new plastic substance from propylene; polypropylene. This discovery did not only award the Professor a Nobel Prize in Chemistry, it was the starting point for distilled polymer-bitumen membranes. The distilled polymer-bitumen membrane revolutionised the concept of waterproofing: the compatibility between polypropylene and distilled bitumen allowed for the development of an innovative all-Italian technology. Protection from atmospheric agents and adverse environmental conditions is fundamental for preserving the value and duration of all buildings. Since 1988, Pluvitec has been committed in the research of new technologies, new products and systems of waterproofing.

Pluvitec is today considered one of the leading companies having made and created innovative waterproofing systems in the construction field and that of infrastructure in general. Pluvitec systems have been chosen by many prestigious companies and the number of references obtained makes them proud of their hard work.  For more than 20 years, Pluvitec has distinguished itself in its role of researching and developing new formulations and innovative systems for the application of the membranes.

Their manufacturing facility allows for a high level of flexibility of the production; the possibility to continuously adapt to the improvements of the products, allowing upgrades of the system and technical modifications. The vast production range makes Pluvitec a specialised company in this sector, unique in its kind.

The company has a presence various African countries and is looking for more business partners in other African countries.
