Bitumen processing in building industry
Bitumen-products have proven to be excellent for sealing and sound deadening in areas of the roofing and building construction industry, especially for flat roofs, as well as in road constructions. Bitumen materials (also called earth pitch) are impermeable to water and require sensitive treatment during processing to maintain their special properties.
For manufacturers of bitumen products such as bitumized film webs or sealing tapes, the demanding task is, on one hand, to keep the thermoplastic bitumen processable at high temperature, and on the other hand, to ensure a precise and even surface coating of the carrier material in use. The special coating systems from „SM Coating GmbH“ enable a high reproducibility for bitumen application and meet the desired requirements.
