Garland Rolls Out Roof Membrane
The Garland Company Inc. (Cleveland) has launched a new roofing thermoplastic membrane reportedly built to "lead the industry in UV and aging performance."
KEE-Stone FB 60 is a fleece-backed membrane designed for use as part of a two-ply hybrid roof system, according to Garland.
Designed with durability and longevity in mind, the product is formulated using DuPont Elvaloy HP Ketone Ethylene Ester (KEE) to offer superior UV resistance, while maintaining low-temperature flexibility, the company says. The membrane is also reinfoced with a polymer-coated, high-performance scrim.
The design of the scrim allows the KEE compound above and below the scrim to fuse together, imparting puncture, tear and tensile strength to the membrane, Garland says.
In accelarated weathering tests, the product showed no signs of cracking or cratering even at 100 times magnification, which is reportedly 10 times more than the ASTM D 6745 standard requirement, Garland says.
For 120 years, Garland has offered roofing and building envelope products for commercial, industrial and institutional applications.
