Who are we
PROTECTA was founded in Austria in the thirties, under the name of “GUSSOLIT,” and
began producing and distributing electric and autogenic welding materials.
This field of work was later enriched with a product line based on epoxy
resins used on repair and joint techniques (chemical welding).
In the early fifties, the founder’s son moved GUSSOLIT to Germany
and opened branches in Italy, France, South America as well as one
in Barcelona, naming representatives throughout Spain. GUSSOLIT products
(Metal Gussolit, Gupalon, Gupalit, GUSSOLITharz) became popular in
the industrial maintenance sector.
In the seventies, this activity and the experienced gained throughout
the years allowed the company, now PROTECTA, to adapt to the market’s
needs, and along with the headquarters in Germany, to develop products
and application techniques for the PROTECTION, REPARATION AND RENOVATION
OF ALL TYPES OF INDUSTRIAL FLOORS, NEW AND OLD.
First in Catalonia, Spain, but then throughout all of Spain, PROTECTA
(registered name and trademark) offers a complete service ranging
from a technician’s visit and assessment up to the delivery
of the product in record time.
The factory production allows us to use the latest materials, a rigorous
quality control and a product selection suitable to the most problematic
Our own state of the art equipment guarantees a high level of finishes
on all floor coverings, both on “dust-proof” EXTRAHARD
COVERINGS or MULTI-LAYERED FLOORS made from self-levelling resins,
or a highly resistant PVC tile system.
