Construction

Buildings, infrastructure and construction sites: applications for plastics – in the form of polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene and polyethylene – are becoming more and more common in the construction industry. Lightness, the potential for reuse and recycling and increased durability are the main attributes that make plastics more advantageous compared to traditional raw materials. The benefits include productivity gains on construction sites and reduced maintenance in the operational phase. In addition to these advantages, plastic has another major ally: sustainability, since solutions made from plastics are 100% recyclable.

PVC applications

Roofing panels, gutters, flooring, ceiling panels and window frames: these are just a few of the various roles that PVC can play in the construction industry. Light, with high tensile and impact strength, waterproof and easy to install and clean, PVC is one of the most widely used materials in today's construction industry.

PVC Concrete Construction System

The system consists of light and modular PVC profiles that are filled with concrete and steel. The main benefit is faster execution of construction. Easy to use and with simple connectors, the system requires no special equipment.

Roofing Panels

The main benefits of PVC roofing panels are lightness, easy installation and greater durability. They also feature excellent dimensional stability and fire resistance.

Door and Window Frames

PVC door and window frames feature durability, resistance to salt spray and UV radiation and low maintenance.

Water Tanks

The main advantages of polyethylene water tanks for drinking water, stormwater runoff or graywater are their high resistance, rapid installation and excellent storage conditions.

PVC and PE Geomembranes

PE or PVC membranes can be used to contain large areas of soil and reservoirs. Their applications include soil protection, landfills, riverbeds or irrigation canals, roads, artificial reservoirs, tanks for fish farming and waterproofing of metal tanks. Flexible and easy to transport and install, geomembranes reduce labor costs and are resistant to impacts, punctures and corrosive chemical substances.

Bubble Deck

Plastic balls made from polypropylene are sandwiched between welded reinforcing steel mesh, resulting in lighter slabs, faster construction and lower environmental impacts.
