Membrane is made from two high-performance films with a
core of specially formulated rubberized asphalt in-between.
It’s tough, self-sealing, and flexible with great tear strength and
UV stability. Resists damage from wind, rain, and structural
movement – can be left exposed to sunlight for months.
