Supercap SBS is an SBS modified asphalt mineral surfaced roll roofing membrane reinforced with a fiberglass mat. Supercap SBS Rubberized Asphalt is a synthetic rubber that boosts the asphalts performance, offering superior durability and flexibility.
Supercap SBS additionally has better granular adhesion and weathering capabilities than mineral surface roll roofing. These modified membranes exhibit high multi-directional strength and excellent cold temperature flexibility superior to traditional asphalt roofing membranes. With these outstanding properties, Supercap SBS provides excellent resistance to “thermal shock,” a major contributor to roof failure.
The system offers an alternative to BUR or APP torch membranes at a competitive price. Additionally, Supercap SBS offers versatility of application with hot asphalt, cold adhesive or heat weld application.
As you can see in the motion graphics of their video, this membrane is ideal for flat roofs, Supercap SBS lays flat because it is heavier than other surface rolls and is waterproof. However, Supercap SBS can also be used as underlayment for tile roofs. Supercap SBS is available in ten different solid and shingle blends, making it optimal for color blending with shingles.
