There are very few companies in the field of composite construction laminates that have launched so many new trends in the course of their company history as Dörken GmbH & Co. KG.
The parent company, Dörken GmbH & Co. KG, is founded.
Dörken & Co. GmbH is established. It produces roofing insulation membranes for railway carriages, becoming the basis for the company’s later involvement in composite construction laminates.
Dörken begins to produce mesh-reinforced composite laminates. The DELTA-FOL SPF tensioned sub-membrane begins its sharp climb to European success.
The DELTA-MS studded sheet membrane is launched. Within a few years, the chocolate brown systems for foundation wall protection and drainage become a company trademark.
Delta-Purafol is launched and becomes the first diffusive tensioned sub-membrane on the market.
Dörken opens a production facility for foundation wall protection, drainage and sealing systems in Beamsville, Canada.
Delta Maxx M, forerunner of the subsequent Delta Maxx and Delta Maxx Plus premium energy-saving membranes, is introduced onto the building materials market.
The composite construction laminates division becomes certified for the first time to DIN EN IS0 9001.
Delta-Foxx, the physically highly durable pre-roofing and sheathing membrane, celebrates its premiere. Its own new production line is built for manufacturing the new material.
The production site in Hagen-Vorhalle is opened. In the new, highly efficient processing plant, five different types of DELTA studded sheet membranes are run in a variety of different widths.
Delta Vent N and Delta Vent S, base products for underlay and sheathing membranes, are introduced.
The new Delta Maxx underlay membrane and the energy-saving Delta Maxx Plus come onto the market. In the same year, Delta-Trela, a structured separating layer for metal coverings, is launched.
In the autumn, mass production begins on the new fleece spinning plant. It produces base materials for diffusive underlay membranes and at around 15 million euros is the company’s largest single investment to date.
The composite construction laminate division is turned into a legally autonomous company and is now called: Dörken GmbH & Co. KG
New item in the product range this year is Delta-Foxx Plus, with an integrated self-adhesive trim.
Dörken GmbH & Co. KG introduces a combined system of quality, safety at work and environmental management to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000, DIN EN ISO 14001 and EMAS II (eco-audit).
Delta-Terraxx is premiered, a new protective and drainage membrane for perimeter insulation and all pressure-resistant subsurfaces.
Dörken introduces new methods of passive indoor climate control with PCMs (phase change materials).
Delta-Geo Drain Quattro, the first 4-layer protection- and drainage layer membrane for thick coatings had been introduced to the market. All patent rights for this membrane are with Dörken.
The "Maxx-family" has got a new born child. The "Thermomembrane Delta-Maxx-Titan" reduces the calorific value by 9% and reflects up to 50 % heat radiation.
Erneuter Zuwachs bei der MAXX-Familie: Die innovative Unterdämmbahn DELTA-MAXX COMFORT bietet mit einem 3 cm starken Wärmedämmvlies eine besondere Kombination von Feuchteschutz und Wärmedämmung.
