Italy-based AMUT Group says that it has supplied two extrusion lines producing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic olefin (TPO) waterproofing membranes to China.

‘We are becoming the largest supplier of waterproofing materials around China reaching a productivity capacity of 10,000,000 m²/year of waterproofing membranes in polymer and 20,000,000 m²/year of waterproofing membrane in bitumen, said Qian Lindi, chairman of Jiangsu Canlon Building Materials Co Ltd, which commissioned the lines. ‘With these two new extrusion lines supplied by AMUT Group as turnkey project, we will rise our production up to 25,000,000 m²/year of waterproofing membrane in polymer.’

The PVC membranes have a three-layer configuration and can incorporate different reinforcements such as polyethersulfone (PES) mat, glass fiber net and polyester fleece. The membrane rolls have a net width of 2000 mm and a thickness up to 3000 µ. The output is 2.200 Kg/h.

The TPO membrane has a three -layer configuration and can have different reinforcement such as polyester grid or PES-non-woven textile. The membranes rolls have a net width of 2000 mm and a thickness up to 2000 µ. The output is 2.000 Kg/h.
