From the very beginning, KÖSTER BAUCHEMIE developed, produced and marketed mainly waterproofing systems but also other construction chemicals. Our current product range comprises more than 120 individual products and is therefore very wide and deep within its segment. In order to be always a step ahead, we continually develop new products and introduce them to the market. KÖSTER BAUCHEMIE products can be applied to almost any waterproofing problem encountered, for repair of existing buildings as well as for protecting new structures.
Our current product range comprises basement waterproofing systems from the inside or outside, complete crack injection systems, joint sealants, systems against rising moisture in walls, waterproofing for tunnels, damp barriers, concrete and mortar admixtures, restoration plasters and sealing slurries, quick-setting cements, industrial floorings, sealing membranes and facade impregnation systems.
Focus on our customers
Solving waterproofing problems successfully, requires knowledge and experience. Therefore, we advise our customers on how to solve their specific problems with the highest level of security and also in regard to cost and time.
The quality of the products and the quality of their applications necessarily have to match. Therefore, we continually conduct trainings and seminars for architects and applicators.
Waterproofing is an area where good quality materials and application can save immense nuisance. It is our policy to offer materials of highest quality, durability and general performance. We firmly belief that one should never compromise on quality and that there simply is no other way to develop a strong and long lasting relationship with our customers. We do not only apply this commitment to quality to our materials but also to all levels of our service. This means that all parts of our organisation i. e. research & development, purchasing, administration, production, logistics and sales are committed to providing high quality service to our customers.
