The Supreme Industries Ltd., founded in 1942 and pioneered many path-breaking products in the country in the last six decades has now become trendsetters in plastics products by introducing many advanced solutions for various applications and industries. All its products have been developed after continuous research and understanding the needs of the changing demands of the new generation constructions.

Supreme offers 'DURA' range of products for various applications in the areas of construction. Being manufactured using virgin raw material, DURA range of products are known for their durability for the simple reason that they have been developed after strenuous interactions with experts in the field, studying current requirements and emerging trends to cater to the fast-changing demand scenario in the sector. The range include: DURAboardHD100, DURArods, DURAroofil, DURAvapourbarrier, DURAprotector, DURAshield, DURAfill, DURAmembrane etc.

DURAmembrane is a new generation, cost-effective solution for waterproofing of basements, roofs bathrooms, and terrace gardens. It is a versatile material, capable of retaining the dryness of concrete, masonry, metal and wood structures and is resistant to salts, alkalis, and most acids.

Being a high-performance composite polymeric membrane, it is also durable, lightweight, non-deteriorating, puncture-resistant, and is available in length stretching up to 50 metres. While bitumen disintegrates after contact with water and also catches fungi after which it starts melting during summer due to lessening of its puncture-resistant strength, DURAmembrane has a very good puncture resistance of 199 N (Test method - ASTM E154: 1999) and since it is polymer based, it will not deteriorate. That apart, none of the waterproofing solution systems provides any added advantage except waterproofing whereas DURAmembrane is not only 100% waterproof but also an excellent insulating material. Other treatments have a tendency to absorb moisture and conduct heat but DURAmembrane does not absorb water at all. Its 'K' value does not deteriorate because its inherent closed cell structure ensures truly effective thermal insulation and waterproofing for lifetime.

Supreme DURAboardHD100 is a high performance, pre-moulded compressible filler board specially designed to be used as expansion joint filler in concrete brick, block work and isolation joint, where readily compressible low load transfer joint filler is required. Its excellent recovery property makes it the most suitable product for this application. Being light weight, it is very easy to handle & install.

The striking features of DURAboardHD100 are:
  • Bitumen free - can be cut in any size with a normal knife
  • Excellent recovery of 95% after compression up to 50%
  • Being polymer based, it is rot proof and bacteria resistant. It won't deteriorate also over a long period
  • Resilient and does not distort under normal load from wet concrete
  • Non-staining
