The company supplies waterproofing membranes all over the world.

Founded in 1969 in Ponte di Piave (Northern Italy), Polyglass is one of the leading European manufacturers of waterproofing membranes. Polyglass celebrates an extremely important anniversary in 2019: 50 years of business and innovation in the field of waterproofing in which research, technological progress, a tailored customer service and respect for both people and the environment are the underlying values that have allowed the company to make such an impact on both the Italian and international markets. It has achieved this success thanks to women and men whose professionalism and expertise have made it possible to study, manufacture and sell high-quality materials admired and exported worldwide. An international enterprise whose DNA and background are 100% Italian.      

Polyglass has been operating with great passion, intuition and dedication since the 1960s. After beginning as a craft industry, the company soon developed into an industrial concern and has been operating worldwide since the end of the 1970s, most notably in the United States. Intent on always coming up with the very best solutions, the Polyglass team has gradually focused more and more on scientific research and technological progress. Today Polyglass is part of the Mapei Group with eight offices in Italy, United Kingdom, USA and globally, so that it can provide technical assistance on-site all over the world.

Its anniversary year officially began at a Sales Staff Meeting hosted by Veronica Squinzi, President of Polyglass and Global Development Director of the Mapei Group.

The company’s 50th anniversary provides an important opportunity to emphasise its transparency and professional ethics in developing innovative solutions for waterproofing and constantly improving its business operations. “Adding value” has always been at the very focus of Polyglass mission, added value that the company pledges to apply to all of its products: bituminous membranes, self-adhesive membranes, ultra-light membranes, synthetic membranes in PVC-P and TPO/FPO, and a whole range of waterproofing accessories. Incoming raw materials used for making Polyglass products undergo daily laboratory testing. Tests are also carried out both during the manufacturing process and on the finished products. Environmentally-friendly changes have been introduced into Polyglass plants that manufacture over 100 million m2 of membranes annually all over the world, all certified in accordance with leading international standards. Hard work, enthusiasm, attention to detail and constant scientific research have made Polyglass one of the most important international companies in its sector.

Global operations


Polyglass been involved in numerous prestigious building projects over the last few years. They include the “doubling in size” of the Panama Canal, a project that included the use of approximately 800,000 m2 of special synthetic membranes (equivalent in size to over 100 football pitches) to waterproof the huge water basins of the Canal.

MAPEPLAN synthetic membranes were also used to waterproof the 55,000 m² roof of the Siemens plant in Fürth (Germany); BROOF-certified fireproof products were applied in the Padua Sports Arena.

 

Several Polyglass solutions were also used in the Okura House in New Zealand, on the roofs of Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan (a landmark for football in the city), in the structures of the Zero Pavilion at the Milan Expo (designed by the architect Michele De Lucchi), as well as in the innovative 99,000 m2 hydroponic crop-growing greenhouses in Ravenna (central Italy) and the hanging garden in Viale Sarca in Milan. Bituminous membranes were also used to waterproof the roofs of the Generali Tower, one of the three skyscrapers in the City Life neighbourhood of Milan, designed by the Zaha Hadid studio.

The roof of Soweto Church in Johannesburg (South Africa) was waterproofed using a special protective paint (POLYPAINT ALU) from the Polyglass Special Products range that provides supplementary solutions.
