Research & Collaboration

Research is the foundation of everything we manufacture, and we take great pride in advancing waterproofing technologies that will continue to improve people’s lives and our communities.


Home to our team of dedicated material scientists and technicians responsible for advancing new waterproofing technology, our innovation laboratory is a 300m2 material test site housing state of the art equipment. This is where cutting-edge waterproofing technology is conceived, tried, tested and realised into new product lines, and where we ensure all existing production is manufactured to the highest quality standards.

A place for creativity and collaboration

In addition to research and development, the innovation laboratory at our industrial headquarters is where expertise and ideas from around the world are advanced. This fosters innovation across all Axter business sectors, strengthening our ability to adapt in an ever-changing industrial waterproofing landscape.

Always curious

As experts in roofing material science and technology we use our curiosity to discover new waterproofing solutions designed to provide real life benefits, such as durability, sustainability and workability. We don’t just let innovation happen, we are actively driving it, for the advantage of our client and customer networks.

Environmental Commitment

Our vision

Our vision is to limit virgin raw material use, by substituting, reusing and recycling where possible. We take sustainability seriously, actively reuse 100% of our membrane production waste and recycle 100% of our plastic packaging and we are working extremely hard to do more. We have robust environmental management systems in place to ensure we are at the forefront of sustainable manufacturing development, and our factories have been awarded ISO 14001:2015 to enhance environmental performance and achieve our environmental objectives.


We are actively leading sustainability through innovation and systematic change. 100% of our polymer modified bitumen membrane production waste is now recycled and taken for re-use in the making of asphalt. Remaking products from waste components for positive use in the infrastructure sector reduces linked industry reliance on virgin raw material, reduces production costs, reduces our CO2 emissions and energy consumption at plant, and eliminates landfill. Further information on the environmental impact of Axter materials and our manufacturing processes can be found in our Environmental Health Statement Report.

Building the future

As a vibrant waterproofing system technology company, we want to play our part in building a sustainable future that will make people’s lives better. We are a business with a conscience, passionate about waterproofing and the built environment that we protect. We think about and plan for the future in the long term. We try to act responsibly in everything we do and avoid a short-term approach; this is the foundation principle of our success.

It's about time. We need to #lookup.
