Plastic waterproofing membranes are used in landfill, tunnel and roof construction as well as in water pollution control, while geosynthetics (e.g. geotextiles, geogrids and combination products) are replacing or supplementing previously common mineral Building Materials in many construction sectors. They are used in earthworks, landfill and foundation engineering (e.g. road/railway construction, dam/terrace construction and as protective materials for the aforementioned plastic waterproofing membranes).
Among the customers that OFI supports with its service portfolio in the field of Construction Products are both manufacturers and users of waterproofing membranes and geotextiles. Our activities focus on Testing and quality assurance of the waterproofing membranes and geosynthetics used.
