Padanaplast began life at the Roccabianca factory in Parma. Initially it produced PVC compounds.
In the 1978 began the production of innovative silane crosslinkable polyolefin-based compounds. Thanks to the high thermo-mechanical material performance quickly found many applications and became extensivly used on Wire& Cable and in Pipes-Fittings sector, enlarging the company WW expansion. 
In the 1990 PVC compounds divison was sold, and Padanaplast became a leader on crosslinkable polyolefin-based compounds. In 2000, Padanaplast was aquired by Solvay Group, strengthening its leadership of specialty ambient cure crosslinkable compounds.
