The worsening of extreme weather patterns across the globe has spawned a demand for more robust commercial roofs. Luckily, the polymer-modified roofing asphalt ENDURAflex HT SEBS meets this increasing demand for materials and systems that can withstand extreme weather. ENDURAflex HT SEBS offers a formula that increases elastic recovery, thermal stability, tensile strength and resistance to UV degradation.
ENDURAflex HT SEBS is different from SBS (Styrene‐Butadiene‐Styrene); a modified asphalt that was made to improve the extensibility and durability of roofing asphalt. Unfortunately, SBS requires the use of expensive oil‐jacketed kettles to avoid damaging the chemical composition of the material, and it does not possess a level of UV resistance that is needed for multi‐decade effectiveness in many environments.
SEBS (Styrene‐Ethylene‐Butadiene‐Styrene), on the other hand, utilizes the addition of an Ethylene midblock which serves to make the material both thermally stable and highly UV resistant. It does not require an oil‐jacketed kettle or any special equipment. This new material can be used in standard direct‐fire kettles and excels in a wide range of climatic conditions.
ENDURAflex HT SEBS is best utilized wherever the most durable and longest‐lasting built‐up roof is needed. Owners of critical facilities, such as hospitals, schools, computer centers, airports and sensitive government buildings have come to realize the importance of installing a hail‐resistant roof assembly over their facilities. ENDURAflex meets or exceeds all requirements of ASTM D6152. In some cases, United Asphalts can also customize a batch to meet a specific specification.
If you seek a hail-resistant, Class IV built-up roof, look no further than ENDURAflex HT SEBS polymer-modified roofing asphalt from United Asphalts for high-performance roofing material.
