Our main products
Thirty years’ presence in various sectors have allowed us to develop the following product range:
Comitec’s silicone sheets and membranes are used in various industrial sectors, their main application is on membrane presses used for:
- Wood veneering
- Glass lamination
- Solar panel lamination
- Aluminium colour sublimation
- Thermoforming of plastic materials
Our silicone membranes and sheets are completely smooth on one side and have a thin fabric pattern on the other side, they are all produced using highest quality raw ingredients.
We develop and constantly improve the silicone compound recipe to ensure enhanced performances compared to common silicone membranes available on the market.
Our silicone membranes ensure:
- 700 % elasticity
- High temperature resistance (peaks of 280°C)
- Weather condition resistance
Thanks to these characteristics we keep discovering new uses for our membranes and sheets.
Comitec was founded in 1992 focusing initially on the production of natural rubber membranes used mainly in the wood veneering sector.
Our natural rubber ODZ45 membranes are completely smooth on one side and have a fabric pattern on the other side, they are also:
- Tested to leave absolutely no marks on the finished piece
- They ensure low elastic modules which allow the membrane to perfectly adapt to each shape that needs to be veneered
- They guarantee high mechanical characteristics.
The production of our membranes begins with the selection of the highest quality raw ingredients which are then tested and combined in our laboratory in order to improve the compound recipe.
This process allows us to produce rubber membranes which ensure superior performances compared to other natural rubber membranes available on the market.
Our constant effort to improve performances, the constant monitoring of each production batch and the rapidity of our services are some of Comitec’s strongpoints.
Our VacuumSoft silicone reusable vacuum bags ensure:
- High laceration resistance
- High temperature resistance (280 °C peaks)
- High elasticity
We originally developed them for the lamination of curved glasses, nowadays they are completely replacing the old mechanical clamp system also in the lamination of flat glasses ensuring a quick and safe closure.
We produce various models suitable for both standard lamination ovens and also autoclaves.
Nowadays our VacuumSoft silicone bags are also being used in other applications amongst which the coupling of different materials through thermoforming and resin infusion.
Our reusable silicone bags can be supplied together with various accessories:
- Temperature probes
- Specially designed silicone air suction fittings
- Silicone tubes for air suction

Our products are used by some of the world leading companies and have been chosen for the quality and the reliability we ensure together with our service.
Here are some of the most common industrial application fields:
- Wood veneering
- Glass lamination
- Photovoltaic panel lamination
- Sublimation of colour on aluminium (resistance to 240°C temperatures)
- Thermoforming of plastic materials
- Lamination, resin infusion, pairings, gluing of composite materials
For your next project please keep in mind that there are infinite applications for our silicone membranes, we ourselves keep discovering new ones.
Wood processing sector
Our natural rubber and silicone membranes are used on ‘membrane presses’, their function is to veneer and coat a layer of fine wood or a plastic coating onto a wooden base. Comitec started its business in the ‘90s when furniture producers where having difficulty finding the right quality products, we therefore started developing our products focusing on high quality and a quick service. We first of all started commercializing natural rubber membranes and then, as technologies evolved and temperatures became higher, we started commercializing also silicone membranes. Considering the high presence of low quality imported products doesn’t meet the quality expectations necessary for particular applications, which need high quality products that require know how for their development, we started developing various products in polyurethane and moulded rubber particulars to offer more support to our customers.
Glass industry: lamination
Glass lamination is an industrial application that allows the production of both laminated glass and safety glass. Laminated glass is produced by bonding together two or more glass sheets with special plastic materials such as EVA, PVB, SentryGlas® interposed in between each glass sheet.
For this sector we also we produce and supply, to machine OEM constructors, particular details produced in small batches which can either be moulded or poured.
Our silicone membranes (both standard and with an extra protective layer) are used in the photovoltaic industry for laminating solar panels, during this phase the panel structure with the photovoltaic cells is paired with the protective glass sheet or with another protective material.
In certain cases, generally when the standard silicone membrane deteriorates quickly, it becomes necessary to use a special membrane with a thin protective layer capable of blocking the vapours that cause premature degradation of the membrane.
Colour sublimation on aluminium
This process is used to transfer colours and patterns onto aluminium profiles, the silicone membrane is fundamental to keep the aluminium profile in contact with the special film, whilst under vacuum. High temperatures are involved in this process, generally between 200°C and 240°C, our silicone (300 SIL 50 BL) can easily handle such temperatures in continuous whilst elongating the membrane’s life of at least 5-6 times when compared to our competitor’s silicones.
During vacuum thermoforming process of plastic materials our silicone membranes (300 SIL 50 BL) are used. These processes are common in automotive sector (thermoforming of the interior parts of a car) and also in the furniture design sector. Our membranes can ensure:
– Elasticity up to 750%, capable of lasting throughout time also after thousands of uses
– Perfect finishing of the surface
– Great resistance to tears
For all of these reasons they are highly appreciated from all of our customers.
We are capable of supplying custom made membranes, with particular shapes such as cubic or conical for example, designed for particular applications in which the profile is particularly complicated.
Lamination, pairing and gluing of composite materials
We supply various materials for the composite sector, mainly created with vacuum processes.
For example for the pairing or the formation of simple pieces and particulars we suggest the use of our VacuumSoft silicone bags with thicknesses from 0.7 mm up to 3 mm, whilst for the creation of complicated particulars or moulds we suggest the use of our raw silicone to be laminated directly at customer’s premises with traditional disposable bags in order to create a 3D silicone bag, we offer all of the necessary support for new projects and can supply all of the necessary release agents, breather fabrics etc.
Years of experience allow us to create 3D VacuumSoft bags with shapes based on your model or mould, to which we then apply to all edges our silicone closure seal.
