CE MARKING OF POLYMER DISTILLED BITUMEN MEMBRANES
The production, sale and distribution of all building materials is subject to ever-evolving statutory requirements. Currently, the main legal instrument governing the European construction industry is the Construction Products Regulation CPR (EU) 305/2011, which replaced the Construction Products Directive CPD 89/106/EEC with effect from 1st July 2013.
Only where materials meet the requirements of the CPR Regulation and relevant Harmonized Technical Standards can they carry CE markingand be released onto the market in European Economic Area countries (even where they are produced outside the European Union).
The objective of these regulations is to ensure building quality and safety, particularly when it comes to keeping workers, consumers and the environment safe from harm, through construction product compliance with the minimum set requirements, which are applicable to all countries in the European Economic Area.
Italy's building technologies institute, ITC, carries out research in the building industry, focusing above all on production technologies and industrialization of the building process.
is an independent certification authority based in the Netherlands.
Products and processes bearing the KOMO quality mark meet the construction industry's quality and safety laws and regulations, in both the private residential/commercial and public sectors (BU), as well as in earthworks, road and hydraulic engineering works (GWW).
The industrial and technical research foundation SINTEF (Stiftelsen for Industriell og Teknisk Forskning) is an independent Norwegian research institute founded in 1950 for the purpose of conducting research projects for private individuals and public bodies.
The UEAtc (Union Européenne pour l'Agrément technique dans la construction) is an organization established in 1960 for the purpose of ensuring that Agrément certificates issued by the various members are recognized as equivalent across the different European countries. The approval, regardless of which member issues it, means that the materials, products or equipment have passed a technical assessment of their fitness for purpose.
Agrément South Africa is an independent organization that evaluates the fitness for purpose of a non-standardized building, a product or a construction system, assessed based on performance criteria.
Branz Appraisal is a certification that is valid in the New Zealand market and attests to the compliance of a construction product or system with building code performance requirements.
Polyglass is a member of GBC USA. Polyglass products can contribute to obtaining credits for LEED certification of buildings.
This is an assessment based on the standards and technical requirements of the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) that all exporters and producers of regulated goods are required to submit to in order to prevent unsafe or poor-quality products being imported into Nigeria.
The Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) are just another mark of the transparency espoused by Polyglass SpA and the Mapei Group in their dealings with the market to provide information on the environmental performance of their products and services, according to relevant categories of parameters and following internationally standardized guidelines.
Given the Covid-19 situation, the next revision of the EPD has been postponed: the current declaration is deemed valid up to the end of May 2021.
FM Global is one of the global insurance companies, based in the US. Its scope also extends to the insurance of industrial buildings. At the same time, FM Global is a test laboratory, testing building elements, buildings and systems to establish the potential for danger involved in their use.
PRIMI is a group representing Italy's waterproofing membrane manufacturers, covering both bitumen (Polymer distilled Bitumen Membranes) and synthetic (Polymer Sheet technology) systems.
SITEB is a non-profit association that brings together the main operators in the road and waterproofing membranes sectors. It brings together and aggregates about 200 Associates, including companies, public administrations, organizations, laboratories and service providers, institutions and freelancers who deal with roads and waterproofing.
REOXTHENE is the revolutionary technology developed by our R&D laboratories, protected by an international patent, ensuring that Polyglass is the sole supplier to operators in the industry. Thanks to an innovative approach that revolutionises traditional bitumen compound production and mixing techniques, we have overcome current technological limits in terms of weight/thickness ratio.
ADESO technology is a revolutionary concept in the production of self-adhesive dual-compound membranes, using an APP, SBS or TPO blend on the top side exposed to the elements, and a highly self-adhesive blend on the underside of the reinforcing carrier.
Patented with ADESO technology, SEALLap is an exclusive industrial treatment applied to produce self-adhesive lap selvedges.
A patented production process for the production of mineral-surfaced membranes with side and end laps (selvedges) free of granules.
Polyglass membranes are produced with NAT® technology, designed to control polymer matrix ageing and, consequently, result in improved longevity of the waterproofing.
Revolutionary polyethylene film that is applied to the underside of the bitumen membrane and offers the advantage of easy torch application (with propane gas savings in the order of 30-40%) and greater adhesion at side and end laps.
