About Us

GAST, founded in 1961, had it’s roots in the chemical industry. This included specialist chemicals for the cosmetic and industrial markets including coatings and waterproofing compounds. The Gast family, originally of Prussian descent began spreading their wings shortly before the Second World War. Afar a field as the USA and Africa. Lambertus Gast, who originally emigrated had a passion for what he termed “simple engineering truth”.

This principle was instilled and today lives on within the GAST lineage. In the early 1980’s GAST patented the first dam lining which at the time relied on a technology which GAST had perfected. So this made the “plasticisation” of soil possible for the first time in the world.

Research time specialising in polymer & plasticiser technologies, has resulted in various additional technologies being developed for the coatings, mining, waterproofing and dam lining industries.
