Established in 1961 as a chemical manufacturer, GAST was initially a producer of specialist chemicals e.g. waterproofing and coating compound for the industrial and cosmetic markets. During the early 80s, the company patented the world’s first dam lining made possible by GAST’s soil “plasticisation” process – a technique the company has perfected through the years.
