SOPRALENE® 180 Sanded is an SBS-modified bitumen base ply for use in approved multi-ply membrane and flashing assemblies. SOPRALENE 180 Sanded is composed of a proprietary formulation of elastomeric styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymer modified bitumen and is reinforced with a tough, dimensionally stable non-woven polyester mat. The topside and underside are surfaced with fine mineral aggregate to facilitate cold adhesive and hot asphalt applications.
Prior to installation, unroll SOPRALENE 180 Sanded onto the roof surface and allow to relax. Place SOPRALENE 180 Sanded in desired position and back roll the product. Apply approved cold adhesive or hot asphalt following manufacturer’s guidelines. SOPRALENE 180 Sanded is then rolled into the cold adhesive or hot asphalt and subsequently rolled with a weighted roller. Subsequent approved inter-ply or cap ply membranes are applied to SOPRALENE 180 Sanded via cold adhesive or hot asphalt. Refer to the SOPREMA® SBS Roofing Manual for additional application guidelines.
