ELASTOPHENE® FR GR (fire retardant, granulated) is an SBS-modified bitumen cap ply for use in approved multi-ply membrane and flashing assemblies. ELASTOPHENE FR GR is composed of a proprietary formulation of elastomeric styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymer modified bitumen and is reinforced with a high quality random glass fiber mat. The topside is surfaced with ceramic coated granules and the underside is surfaced with fine mineral aggregate to facilitate cold adhesive and hot asphalt applications.
Prior to installation, unroll ELASTOPHENE FR GRonto the roof surface and allow to relax. Place ELASTOPHENE FR GR in desired position and back roll the product. Apply approved cold adhesive or hot asphalt following manufacturer specifications. ELASTOPHENE FR GR is then rolled into the cold adhesive or hot asphalt and subsequently broomed in if utilizing hot asphalt or rolled with a weighted roll if utilizing cold adhesives. Subsequent approved inter-ply or cap ply membranes are applied to ELASTOPHENE FR GR via cold adhesive or hot asphalt. Refer to the SOPREMA SBS Roofing Manual for additional application guidelines.
