Equipment and plant engineering for bitumen coating

What we offer for the professional production of single or double-sided bitumen sheets, polymer bitumen membranes, bitumen sealing strips, screed membranes and various types of roofing felt:

  • Bitumen in line with requirements – material feed with SM Klebetechnik pump stations
  • Exact bitumen application in flat or bead form with SM Klebetechnik wide slot nozzles and application heads

  • Pressure-controlled, even bitumen application with SM Klebetechnik drum melters
  • Coating systems, modules and coating stands, individually configured and manufactured at our factory in Germany by our “Coating / Laminating Experts” at SM Coating

Bitumen processing in construction

Bitumen products have proven to be excellent for sealing and soundproofing in the roofing and construction industry, especially for flat roofs, as well as in road construction. Bitumen masses, also known as ground pitch, are impermeable to water but require special measures during processing to preserve their unique properties.

Manufacturers of bitumen products such as bitumen sheeting or sealing tape, face the demanding task of keeping the thermoplastic bitumen processable at high temperatures on the one hand and ensuring precise, even coating of the base material on the other. SM Coating GmbH’s special coating systems ensure the reproducible application of bitumen and meet the desired requirements.

Upgrade to bitumen processing with SM Coating

Manufacturers active in film or textile coating can benefit from cost-efficient conversion and product optimisation by using bitumen processing as a means of diversifying their products in the market. Existing coating systems can often be converted or expanded for bitumen processing.

Our experienced engineers at SM Klebetechnik and SM Coating will support you from the planning phase to the conversion of existing systems to bitumen processing as well as the development of new fully integrated systems. At our technical centre with a floor area of more than 400 m², we develop innovative solutions for you and carry out relevant individual testing to simulate the subsequent production process.
