The latest innovation in the field of reliable swimming pool waterproofing systems is the embodiment of Green Technology: Each layer of the system is solvent-free and thus meets the requirements for sustainability too. A major aspect of the innovation is the utilisation and processing of renewable raw materials. From the preparation of the substrate to the finished upper lining – STEULER-Q7eco is a precisely matched system of materials that doesn't give leaks or any other types of damage that typically affect swimming pools a chance. The proven system gives customers, planners and architects the greatest degree of flexibility and peace of mind when it comes to waterproofing pools of any shape and design imaginable, including the integrated elements and equipment. The ability to commence sealing and lining work sooner, a solvent-free all-in-one system for fast and dependable project implementation and reliable leak testing without having to fill the pool result in an unbeatable combination of economic efficiency, environmental friendliness and sustainability.
