about us

Introduction

 

Established in early 1986, Duroplastic is one of the longest established South African companies supplying composite materials to the Southern African market.

Duroplastic has for the last 25 years supplied a range of composite materials including fiberglass, polyester resins, and epoxies to a broad range of industries. A range of Fiberglass Roof sheeting in I.B.R., Corrugated and Big 6 profiles is also manufactured by way of an extrusion machine.

The Company’s head office and manufacturing is situated in its own premises of over 10 000m2 in Brackenfell, Cape Town. A sales and distribution warehouse (of 1250m2) in Gauteng, Sandton.

Duroplastic is committed to the consistent supply of quality products through a program of improvement and implementation of quality control methods. Continual staff training is part of the basic culture of the company and it is the group’s aspiration to register for Lloyds ISO 9002 certification in the near future.

In order to develop and promote new applications of technology associated with structural matrices, the Duroplastic Group has a Chemical Laboratory, a Composite Physical Lab and a Training/Applications centre. With these facilities we can remain on the leading edge of innovation.

Terrasol was developed as a specialized facility within Duroplastic to supply cementitious binder systems (an alternative to polymer binder systems such as polyester resins) in 1998. This was in response to the market demand for Planet Friendly non-harmful products that also exhibit low Fire Smoke and Toxicity ratings. Terrasol was very involved in the supply of materials to Ratanga Junction, Ceasars, Monte Casino, Grand West Casino and Canal Walk Shopping Centre.

In order to meet the demand for such products, Terrasol purchased in 2000, a German designed mixing machine that can mix and bag powder blends at a productivity rate of 10 tons per day. This gives Terrasol the ability to be the biggest supplier of specialized powder blends in the Western Cape.

Terrasol now has a range of products to supply the Architectural industry from Cement paints, Internal and external plasters to Floor Screeds.
