Firestone's UltraWhite Modified Bitumen Cap Sheets made with roofing granules provide a cool roofing solution
Firestone Building Products Company is unveiling modified bitumen cap sheets made with UltraWhite roofing granules, which provide a granule-surfaced, cool roofing solution that enhances light reflectivity and heat emissivity, reducing energy consumption and electricity demand. UL- and FM-code approved, UltraWhite Modified Bitumen Cap Sheets meet requirements for California’s Title 24 regulations and can help achieve points in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
Firestone UltraWhite granules are applied before the cap sheets reach the rooftop, eliminating the need for field-applied systems that increase labor costs and have the potential to crack or peel. The cap sheets are resistant to foot traffic and hail, demonstrate good granule retention and do not have metal or plastic film added to the surface, which could cause it to wrinkle or delaminate.
Available in SBS and APP modified bitumen cap sheets utilizing Firestone’s UltraWhite granules, the modified bitumen cap sheets can be applied with hot asphalt, heat welding or cold adhesive and are compatible with steel, concrete, plywood and wood decks.
