Reinforcement for bituminous membranes

Texbond R is a staple polyester nonwoven reinforced with glass filaments in machine direction, available in numerous versions with different weights.
The combination of the flexibility of polyester with the stability of glass not only allows excellent runnability of the nonwoven, especially at high temperatures and when used on high-speed bitumen lines, but also gives the bituminous membrane outstanding dimensional stability and resistance over time.
Using glass reinforcement also eliminates the phenomenon of thermal memory: once applied to roofs, the membrane is not subject to shrinkage due to temperature changes.
