What is Modified Bitumen?
Modified Bitumen is manufactured using an asphalt base. Then, modifiers are combined with the asphalt. The most frequently used modifiers are styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) and attactic polypropylene (APP). These modifiers create a stronger, more flexible roofing system.
After this, the bitumen is reinforced using a matting created from fiberglass or polyester fiber. This gives the roofing system an increased level of endurance. Modified Bitumen comes in a variety of colors, including white, which is often chosen for its reflective quality.
