Self-adhered Modified Bitumen Membrane Introduced

Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., a leading manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing systems, develops Elastoflex SA V Plus self-adhered modified bitumen membrane. At 100 mils (2.5 mm) thick, this robust base sheet or inter ply can be used to design multi-ply, low-slope roof systems backed by long-term warranties.

Elastoflex SA V Plus is 20 percent thicker than the existing Elastoflex SA V membrane. When used in conjunction with an approved Polyglass cap sheet, contractors can build a 240+ mils resilient roof system. Finished with laylines, Elastoflex SA V Plus installs easily and adheres to a variety of substrates, including non-primed insulation, cover boards, and wood decks. A fire-rated option, Elastoflex SA V Plus FR, is also available. 

Joining the ADESO® Dual-Compound Self-Adhered product family, Elastoflex SA V Plus provides for a faster application and saves on labor. Engineered for long-term performance,Elastoflex SA V Plus is manufactured with an SBS (elastomeric) formulation on the top weathering side of the reinforcement and an aggressive self-adhering formulation on the bottom side. Utilizing a premium SBS compound provides superior low-temperature-flexibility and long-term weathering performance.

“We are excited to provide a new self-adhered roofing solutions for contractors,” says Polyglass CEO Natalino Zanchetta. “Thicker membranes enable the design of highly durable roof systems that are resistant to punctures , hail, tears, and abrasions.”
