ELASTOPHENE® HR FR GR (high resistance, fire retardant, granulated) is an SBS-modified bitumen cap ply for use in approved multi-ply membrane and flashing assemblies. ELASTOPHENE HR FR GR is composed of a proprietary formulation of elastomeric styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymer modified bitumen and is reinforced with high performance glass scrim. 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 HR FR GR onto the roof surface and allow to relax. Place ELASTOPHENE HR FR GR in desired position and back roll the product. Apply approved cold adhesive or hot asphalt following manufacturer specifications. ELASTOPHENE HR 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 HR FR GR via cold adhesive or hot asphalt. Refer to the SOPREMA SBS Roofing Manual for additional application guidelines.
