Performance Attributes

ENHANCED GLASS FIBER CHARACTERISTICS
EXCELLENT MAT/SHINGLE PERFORMANCE
  • Enhanced Glass Fiber Characteristics

    Advantex® glass helps fight corrosion, enhancing service life of both the roofing mat and shingles, as compared to standard E-glass. <br> <br> Boron-free Advantex® glass contributes to decreased emissions, reduces the environmental impact of manufacturing fiberglass, and provides superior performance in corrosive environments compared to standard E-glass.

  • Excellent Mat/Shingle Performance

    Improved fiber dispersion and hot/wet tensile retention in mat for better cure of mat binders. This results in improved mat tensile and shingle tear strength properties.

APPLICATIONS

9560 is designed to provide strength and durability to roofing shingle mats.
