The most successful and most versatile product range - Regupol® from BSW

More than 40 years ago the internationally known brand material Regupol® was developed by BSW and is used today all over the world. Originally, Regupol® was a combination of rubber granules or fibres and polyurethane binders. Meanwhile, many other elastic materials are processed in hundreds of Regupol® types that have been developed over the years for BSW’s own products or on behalf of customers. Surface refinements and laminated solutions result in even more product variations for many different purposes and applications.

Regupol® is a permanently elastic material and can be supplied in rolls, sheets or molded products. Regupol® is suitable for all applications which require attenuation of impact sound and vibration, durability and resistance to mechanical loads. Regupol® can be used for a wide variety of sports surfaces, floor covering, impact protection, sheets and tiles for building protection and for impact sound protection, materials for vibration technology and anti-slip mats for securing loads. Regupol® can be used for a large variety of applications, it is long-lasting, resilient and can be recycled.

BSW sells Regupol® as a raw material for further processing and also as cuts in many different shapes and sizes. Moreover, most of BSW’s final products are made of Regupol®.
