Modified bitumen, also known as polymer-modified bitumen, sheet membranes are composed of fabrics that are reinforced, which serve as a carrier for hot polymer-modified bitumen while it’s manufactured into a type of roll material. Modified bitumen, or MB for short, roof system membranes have a composition of multiple layers, and are installed typically as a two-ply system that are usually fully adhered.
Typically, there are two different types of modified bitumen roofing membranes:
SBS polymer-modified bitumen membranes are commonly installed in asphalt, hot moppings, or cold adhesive. Some of these membranes are self adhering, as a few have an adhesive backing. APP polymer-modified bitumen membranes are usually applied with a torch or welded with heat.
