Project Description

This project will take a prototype roof tile made of ‘waste’ PVC banner to a pre-commercial roof tile with the expertise of Monash University, Welvic and Boral.
While we see excellent market potential with its high strength, high wear, chemical resistance, waterproof characteristics and sustainable material use, an interlocking tile design needs dynamic weather testing at the CSIRO.
