EUROSTAR REFLECTA is a plastomeric modified bitumen waterproofing membrane (APP), industrially manufactured by impregnation of the reinforcement with the waterproofing compound based on distilled bitumen modified with polyolefin polymers of the latest generation, which gives to the compound superior technical characteristics. The composite reinforcement, made of nonwoven spunbond polyester in combination with fiberglass, conveys high mechanical characteristics, excellent dimensional stability, isotropic behaviour and elastic performance. Shaping of sheets, straightness, dimensional and surface uniformity are accomplished by hot calendering of the mass at hot melt fluid state.It is a self-protected membrane. Special faeture is the coating of the upper face with special white slate flakes with high solar reflectance. The high reflection property combined with a high emissivity allows the covering which the membrane is applied, on a lower heat absorption during the day and subsequently to trasmit and emit such thermal energy in the infrared field. This determines a lowering of the operating temperature of the waterproofing system and consequently of the indoor environments underneath the roof, with benefits in terms of energy saving and longer membrane lifespan.
