ALSAN RS Quartz Aggregate is hand-broadcast into an appropriate coat of ALSAN RS resin, ALSAN RS mortar or ALSAN RS 287 Color Finish Base. When applying a colored-quartz finish, SOPREMA recommends blending a minimum of three different colored aggregates for the best aesthetic results. The applicator is responsible for ensuring conditions are appropriate to proceed with proper application methods.

Lancaster Material Distribution Center – Lancaster, Texas

In May 2017, the Lancaster Material Distribution Center needed a new roof. While the original SOPREMA asphalt system was in decent shape, it was nearly 25 years old and at the end of its life. Through value engineering, it was decided that the existing system would be left in place to save cost. SOPREMA products were selected to re-roof this project due to the proven durability of the existing roof. The system that was installed included ELASTOCOL® 500, COLVENT® Flam, ELASTOPHENE® Flam LS FR GR, SOPRALENE® Flam 180 and SOPRALENE Flam 180 FR GR.
