Supershield was founded in 1998 by a group of chemists who developed the DPC (Deep Penetrating Crystalline) crystalline technology for waterproofing concrete. In 2000 Supershield built the first manufacturing plant, in southern India, in the city of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu.

Supershield also cooperates with external laboratories and academic institutions for the research and trial tests of its products. Supershield Global is represented in India, Asia and UAE.
