Polyglass, Amut: Increasing production capacity for TPO membranes

Polyglass S.p.A., an Italian company of the Mapei Group, specialised in the production of waterproofing membranes and insulation systems, has chosen Amut as a strategic partner to increase its production capacity for TPO membranes. In December 2020, Polyglass commissioned Amut a new extrusion plant with a capacity of 10,000,000 m2/year that will be dedicated to the production of Mapeplan T, a flexible polyolefin synthetic waterproofing membrane.

The plant will be served by a fully automatic system for direct in-line dosing of raw materials and flame retardant additives that will be directly processed and extruded by the Amut line. The solution, designed to meet the project specifications, is fully automated, equipped with an automatic packing system for the rolls produced and features technology for dimensional control of the product and visual surface inspection. According to the contractual agreements, Amut will deliver the line in the second half of 2021, so that it can be put into production by November, on schedule.
