What is Modified Bitumen?
It is a type of low-slope roofing material made of modified asphalt that’s been reinforced with fiberglass or polyester, or a combination of both. The result is a waterproof roofing material with high durability. There are two main types of modified bitumen membranes:
- Atactic Polypropylene (APP) – This is a thermoplastic polymer that is known to give asphalt a plastic-like quality. It can be heat-welded or torch-applied.
- Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) – This type is installed using cold adhesive or hot asphalt moppings.. It conveys a rubber-like appearance.
RainTech Roofing, Sheet Metal & Gutters will walk you through these options and work with you to select the best type for your building.
