Cover Waterproofing

WATERPROOFING

The waterproofing geomembranes of our production line Cover Up System are made of rein-forced polyethylene and they are the result of years of research and development gained during the years in the waterproofing field.
They are characterised by:

LOW THICKNESS

and high tensile strenght and static puncture resistance

HIGH RESISTANCE

to chemical organic polluting agents

LONG LASTING AND HIGH UV RESISTANCE

5 to 15 years according to climatic conditions of the reference area and according to the geomembrane type

EASY AND FAST INSTALLATION

that allows to cover wide surfaces using little manpower, reducing welding operations on site (until about 7.000 sqm in a unique tarpaulin)

HIGH DEGREE OF FLEXIBILITY, ADAPTABILITY

to very irregular surfaces
