Committed to innovation, safety and the environment since 1983


Our story

Gripset Industries is an Australian owned company that has been developing and manufacturing waterproofing products for over 30 years. In the early 1980's the company commenced developing alternatives to solvent based bitumen and resin coatings, using water based and solvent free technology. Gripset has never manufactured solvent or hazardous products, and is a pioneer in green friendly technology and continues as a market leader today. The evolution from this unique technology has led to the development of high quality waterproofing systems for wet areas, weather-exposed surfaces, subterranean structures, and continuously immersed areas, including potable water systems and protective pavement solutions.

The company's focus on innovation has spawned the next generation of protective coatings, using 100% natural materials to solve industry and environmental problems. From this, the Gripset WB1 chemical free timber preservative system was launched. Free of biocides and chemicals, The WB1 protects timber from insects and fungus, treats and repairs wet/dry rot and provides all round timber preservation in a safer, natural way over traditional chemical base, toxic alternatives.

Gripset Industries will continue its commitment and dedicated focus on R&D to provide the market with further innovative and sustainable solutions for the built environment. By simplifying many of the challenges in volatile areas we can provide a complete system to ensure your next waterproofing or pavement project is Sealed for Good.

Health effects of occupational exposure to asphalt
Jan 14th, 2016

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has critically evaluated the scientific data on hazardous occupational exposures or work conditions involving asphalt. Known carcinogens have been found in asphalt fumes, with observations of acute irritation in workers from airborne and dermal exposures to asphalt fumes and aerosols and the potential for chronic health effects, including cancer, warrant continued diligence in the control of exposures.

Gripset WB1 is sweet as honey for bee keepers
Jan 14th, 2016

A new niche market has opened for Gripset WB1 - bee keepers. Being an all natural product to protect and restore wood, bee keepers are using Gripset WB1 for their hives. Gripset WB1 protects the wood from deterioration from constant exposure to outdoor environments.

There has been an increase in petroleum based polystyrene hives, which provide the advantage of longevity in the field, but bees don't like them as much as wood.

With Gripset WB1, wooden hives can be used for longer, without using any toxic based vanish or paint.
