Plastbau Technology

SYNTHEON products are manufactured with Plastbau® technology featuring the semi-continuous moulding of EPS into a wide range of innovative, top-quality products.


The Innovation Inside

Plastbau technology enables SYNTHEON to engineer and offer revolutionary building components in a variety of heights, widths and densities (solid and hollow core). Plastbau technology processes also allow metallic reinforcements to be easily inserted in the EPS during the moulding cycle, creating unprecedented performance levels.

Plastbau technology and elements are revolutionary in the production and delivery phase, as well as in the application phase. In the production and delivery phase, the Plastbau system is characterized by production rationality and flexibility, possibility to produce elements with height on request, absence of rejects, total utilization of loading volumes. In the application phase, the main advantages of Plastbau elements are: flexibility, reduction of raw building costs, heat insulation, ease of the laying of service lines under plaster, reduction of building time, of financing costs and specialist intervention, lightness, handiness, protection from atmospheric deterioration, respect for nature. Plastbau products can be easily adapted to different markets and to the producer’s specific needs.
