The RPM/Belgium Group has acquired Hermeta Chemie GmbH, based in Berlin, to broaden RPM’s waterproofing product offerings for pedestrian traffic decks, industrial floors and balconies.
Hermeta produces polyurethane- and epoxy-based coating systems. The products are highly complementary to lines currently offered by RPM/Belgium and Alteco Technik, RPM said in a statement.
The RPM/Belgium Group is a leading manufacturer and supplier of industrial flooring systems and specialty waterproofing systems. Its products include the one-coat Matacryl WPM bridge deck waterproofing system, which recently received HAPAS BBA Certification for use as a bridge deck liquid waterproofing system under asphalt for concrete decks of highway bridges.
The company’s specialty waterproofing systems also include the Alumanation 301 anti-corrosion system; Dual Seal waterproofing membrane for below-grade areas; Durabran protective coatings for concrete and asbestos cement and cement sheets; and Vulkem Quick for stadiums, steps, balconies and terraces. Industrial flooring systems include Monopur polyurethane concrete floors; and Monile, an acrylate-modified cementitious mortar.
Hermeta Chemie, established in 1918, specializes in low-solvent, polyurethane, weather- and color-resistant floor coatings for indoor and outdoor application.
