In the year 2000, our license company STP (Specialised Technical Products), based in the United Kingdom, opened its doors and has been specialising in butyl tapes. At the same time Accent Manufacturing, based in KZN, South Africa was perfecting adhesive putty. STP and Accent entered into an agreement in 2016 to manufacture and distribute butyl tape in South Africa, combining knowledge and experience. Hence, Butyl Technology (Pty) Ltd,
was born.

We have a purpose-built manufacturing facility located in KwaZulu-Natal, which means closer to raw materials suppliers and a harbour on our doorstep for the import and export of materials and products. All this means substantial cost savings which can directly be passed onto customers. The factory is manned by experienced staff and Butyl Technology can provide short production lead times, an essential market requirement.
Providing a product that offers quality and consistency, comes from our commitment and belief in our product and the high standards of manufacture and service, on which we pride ourselves. Ensuring customer satisfaction in our products and service is our highest priority.
