Tecnopol is a very innovative company, they are constantly launching new products, and clearly what they are looking for with them, is to meet the needs of applicators and end customers. It is evident in every new product, that the aim was to listen to the customer, meet their requirements and facilitate the application tasks.
We have been supplying Tecnopol materials to the construction industry in Uruguay since 2014. We have been a part of many, many projects, but to mention a few: The Forum Building, British Hospital Parking Structure, Catholic University Parking Structure, More Echevarriarza Construction Project, Aguada Park, Crystal View Solanas, Araucaria, Nostrum 18, Nostrum Tower and Campiglia Pilay Towers.
Our main markets are insulation and waterproofing of slabs and parking structures. But we have been part of a few unconventional projects, which is the coating of fuel tanks for service stations. The work consists of coating them with polyurea but without the coating adhering to the tank. The idea is to form a chamber between the tank and the polyurea, thereby creating a vacuum meaning we are able to check that the pressure is maintained. This way, if there is any leakage in the tank, the pressure varies and the leakage is quickly detected.
Absolutely. Our involvement in the specification of products and work to be carried out is growing continuously. In doing so, the project can be optimized, making the best use of the products and plans, and saving on high construction costs.
More and more so. Customers increasingly value sustainable products and prioritise their use on construction sites. Today, many customers are opting for sustainable products (such as our water-based polyurethane foams or HFOs) out of choice, even though this is not yet required by the regulations in force here.
Polyurea is a one-way street. An architect, builder or customer who has tried the product will never go back to a more basic system. Polyurea is a safe and durable solution, and the initial investment required is quickly earned back over time.
Construction in Uruguay is not going to stop growing and evolving. Increasingly, customers value and demand technological solutions that provide return on their investments and that minimise maintenance over time. And to this end, Tecnopol has developed many solutions over the years to meet the needs of the task at hand.
Sales Manager since October 2007, which fills him with "pride and great responsibility". Although he says he has not yet finished his studies in chemical engineering, he says he knows the company almost like the back of his hand, since he joined the company in 1997 as a quality control inspector for the material.
