Plastic solutions for the building industry
Around the world, the construction industry is facing major challenges. Some two-thirds of the global population will be living in cities by the year 2025. Sustainable building, climate protection, energy efficiency and ever-rising demands on structure and design will define the market of the future - and plastics will play a vital role.
Around the world, more than a quarter of plastic is produced for the construction industry. Plastics have a long service life; they are lightweight, strong and flexible. As a long-standing partner to the building trade, SIMONA is meeting the challenges of this future-driven sector through innovative flair and a sound knowledge of the market.
The company's innovations include the PVC free-foam sheet SIMOPOR CONSTRUCT. It comes with a compelling value proposition in the form of low weight, high stability and excellent processing capability. By using recycled materials, we have applied a full-circle approach to the material cycle–delivering a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to conventional building boards made of wood, wood composite, calcium silicate or metal.
In the field of door production, SIMONA offers SIMOSHIELD, another product range aimed at the construction industry. With their decorative foils, PVC-T sheets have a tactile wood-type grain. SIMOSHIELD is manufactured using an innovative laminating process.
In SIMOFLOOR, SIMONA has developed a product for use in the manufacture of floor coverings. The moisture-resistant material does not swell when exposed to water, making it ideal for applications in damp environments.
