Rubberfuse - synthetic waterproofing systemsYour partner for advanced, environmentally friendly waterproofing solutions

Schieroni Sr

the company

With over 70 years of experience, Imper Italia has reached a high level of knowledge and skill in waterproofing technology. The production of bitumen/polymer membranes, a field where Imper Italia gained leadership, has helped the research and development of synthetic materials, including Thermoplastic PolyOlefins (TPO).

The latest polymerisation process enables the incorporation of uncured ethylene propylene rubber into a polypropylene matrix, resulting in Flexible Polypropylene Alloy (FPA), a flexible, totally inert TPO technopolymer which offers the high performance of conventional elastomers while allowing heat welded field seams. Constant research focused on developing the most appropriate systems to meet customers' requirements while being fully environmentally friendly.

This research enabled the technicians at Imper Italia's rubberfuse division to develop Sintofoil, a new generation of TPO/FPA waterproofing membranes. Launched in 1995, rubberfuse was a total newcomer on the waterproofing market. At that time, some pioneers were prompt to see the advantages offered by TPO/FPA systems and joined us to participate in the development of that high quality product.

Today, rubberfuse has become the choice partner for advanced, environmentally friendly waterproofing solutions.

TPO/FPA systems have been succesfully installed in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Holland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Vietnam.
