Plastics for the building industry
Construction projects need to be completed on time and handed over free of defects. That means planners and designers have a lot of decisions to make. One of them is choosing the right construction materials. There are few other materials that meet the different requirements in the construction industry as flexibly as plastic. Plastics are increasingly replacing traditional materials such as wood and metal. Our materials are used, for instance, in the construction of long-lasting doors and window frames and resistant collision protection panels and help to prevent cold bridges.
- High wear resistance gives you the option of manufacturing long-lasting components
- Suitable for permanent outdoor use thanks to high UV resistance
- Low thermal conductivity helps to prevent cold bridges and supports energy efficiency
- High-quality appearance
Areas of application
- Store construction / discounters
- Industrial/commercial operations
- Public buildings
- Food service industry
- Railway stations
Wall protection panels
Polystone® wall protection panels protect walls, door frames, shelving, counters and other heavily used areas from damage. With their shock resistance, food-safe properties and resistance to low temperatures, they offer many advantages over traditional wood and MDF panels or concrete collision protection.
Front doors made of Trovidur® Astrawood®
Front doors made of our material Trovidur® Astrawood® remain dimensionally stable even when exposed to strong sunlight. The PVC base sheet is bonded to a hard-wearing and non-weathering PVC-based film that is the only one of its kind on the market. This special combination allows you to build front doors with a particularly high heat reflection and long life.
Window frames and door sills
Thanks to their high mechanical stability and UV resistance, window frames and door sills made of Durostone® profiles have a long life and require little maintenance. The low thermal conductivity helps to prevent cold bridges, while a decorative film covering lends them an attractive visual appearance.
Durostone® fasteners have a very low thermal conductivity compared with steel, which means they can be used to prevent cold bridges in the construction sector, such as when mounting façades. All Durostone® grades have a thermal conductivity of 0.3 W/mK, putting them on a par with mineral wool, which is used as an insulating material in construction.
Thermal insulation with GreenGirt
Röchling’s fibre-reinforced GreenGirt profile is part of the SMARTci thermal insulation system from APP that delivers a significant boost to the energy efficiency of buildings. GreenGirt offers very high thermal insulation compared with traditional metal profiles. Heat bridges are avoided and heating and cooling costs reduced.
Trovidur® EC Clad – Hygienic wall panels
With Trovidur® EC Clad we offer you wall panels that meet the high demands to hygiene and looks in many public and commercial facilities. Wall panels made of PVC are easy to install, easy-care and available in various formats. They can be directly installed on most level surfaces with special adhesive. The few joints of the large-format panels are closed with profiles to form a smooth, seamless surface. Trovidur® EC Clad is chemicals-resistant and withstands commonly used cleaning agents. It also meets the high demands to fire protection. With Trovidur® EC Clad LS we offer you a smoke retardant material that meets the requirements of EN 13501 for the B s2 d0 classification.
Arrange technical advice
The performance and service life of materials used in the construction industry are influenced by a variety of factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:
- Mechanical loading
- Thermal loading
- External influences such as UV radiation and weathering
- Design requirements
- Dimensions and tolerances
