Siplast, Inc is a developer and manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing systems. It provides insulating concrete systems, SBS-modified bitumen roofing, roof insulation panels and modified bitumen roof system accessories. Siplast was established in 1979, operates as a subsidiary of Icopal and has headquarters in Irving, Texas.
Siplast has been developing and manufacturing advanced roofing and waterproofing systems for over 35 years. In the late 1960s, Siplast Research and Development along with Shell Chemical of Europe initiated a program aimed at improving bitumen properties and as a result, developed SBS modified bitumens, products for use in waterproof applications. Siplast soon began manufacturing the modified waterproof bitumen.
Siplast developed the world’s first bituminous geomembrane - Teranap in 1975 with the cooperation of the “Godfather of Geosynthetics,” Mr JP Giroud. In its largest acquisition to date, Icopal, acquired Siplast with subsidiaries in USA and Germany in 1989.
In the year 2000, Icopal was taken over by an association of companies that included American Carlisle Companies Inc, and Canadian IKO Sales Ltd along with Axcel II and Kirkbi, two Danish financial investors. The Icopal Group was sold to GAF, the largest North American manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing in April 2016.
Siplast believes that there is no one-product solution for all roofing problems and that varied conditions demand varied solutions. Siplast manufactures a line of liquid resin products along with its range of SBS-modified bitumen roofing materials for its roofing and waterproofing applications.

The process starts with the Siplast Select Contractor that applies for a guarantee. The order is placed only when the Technical Department approves the products and their intended use.
Before issuing a guarantee, the Select Contractor notifies the company on completion of the job and a final inspection is then scheduled with a Siplast Representative.
