History of Alchimica
Alchimica is founded in an old rice mill located in Athens. Mr. Krimizis creates HYGRODESMO, an acrylic based waterproofing product that is easy to apply. Although the idea is relatively new, even for European standards at the time, the competition responds and quickly begins to develop similar products. With this industrial disruption, Mr. Krimizis recognises the need to create an unique and innovative product with unparalleled properties, so that his newfound company may succeed the growing competition.
Based on the technological superiority of HYPERDESMO® and its overwhelming advantages which, by now are already being recognized by the European construction materials market’s most innovative and demanding players, ALCHIMICA broadens its horizons towards its natural ecosystem – to build their reputation on an international level.
ALCHIMICA invests in new facilities and creates its second production unit in Avlida, Greece. Equipped with custom made cutting-edge high precision reactors, ALCHIMICA’s new production unit has an increased productive output of 25,000 tons per year leveraging its potential to respond to the increasing international demand of its products.
Continuing its unmatched legacy in innovation, ALCHIMICA’s Research and Development center creates the new water-borne polyurethane product line, AQUASMART®. The AQUASMART®-PU-2K system becomes the world’s first water-borne system to achieve a CE certification for an expected working life of at least 25 years.
ALCHIMICA India achieves waterproofing & protection of Indian Buildings & Infrastructure with HYPERDESMO, AQUASMART, HYPERSEAL & HYPERFLOOR range of products for more than 500,000 Square Meters.
