Garland Canada’s StressPly E Roofing Membrane for Increased Sustainability

The latest StressPly E (Environmental) bitumen roofing membrane from Garland Canada has provided tensile strength of 500 lbf./in., which incorporates quick renewable resources and multiple ranges of pre- and post-consumer recyclable materials for enhanced sustainability.

StressPly Environmental Roofing Membranes offer high strength while using recycled materials.

This membrane has more strength, resistant to fatigue and puncture that forms a suitable strengthening and waterproofing layer for applications, which need a high level of ecological responsibility.

This new membrane has maintained the potential of high performance of the previous product versions, while a new industrial standard is prepared for including the eco-friendly responsible materials. Green-Lock membrane adhesive from the company can be used for installing these membranes for 100% odor-free and VOC-free application. StressPly E membranes offer the longevity and security of multi-ply construction by means of stretching and flexibility of the elastomeric system, as the multi-ply system has a strong weathering membrane.

Garland Canada’s general manager, Charbel Boulos, stated that this new membrane uses the latest renewable and recycled raw materials during the process of manufacturing that resulted in recycled content. This supports the building proprietors to attain LEED certification from USGBC. A fire retardant is also included to the compound in the manufacturing method that has facilitated the maintenance of the fire rating of the membrane’s life.

The StressPly E membranes has included pre-consumer crushed porcelain as filler, pre- consumer recycled boiler slag as surfacing, post-consumer glass bottles as a parting agent and post-consumer scrap from recycled tires, renewable resources to achieve the LEED points.

The company has designed the StressPly membranes to be used as the main part in built-up roof applications. This membrane can add additional durability to a two-ply flashing system. It can be used to repair cracks, splits, and other weak areas in the present roofing systems based on asphalt material.
