PHOENIX SUPER MINERAL REFLECT PROTECTION

Request information

The Phoenix Super Reflect Protection membrane compound consists of a distilled modified bitumen mixture with a very high content of Amorphous Poly-Alpha-Olefins (APAO). These particular elasto-thermoplastic polymers consist of a terpolymer of Ethylene, Propylene and 1-Butene, which has a strong compatibility with bitumen; its peculiar qualities are highlighted by three indicators: thermal ageing resistance, cold flexibility (-35° C), lower than that of SBS modified compounds, and thermal shape stability (140° C)


The Phoenix Super Reflect Protection membrane compound consists of a distilled modified bitumen mixture with a very high content of Amorphous Poly-Alpha-Olefins (APAO). These particular elasto-thermoplastic polymers consist of a terpolymer of Ethylene, Propylene and 1-Butene, which has a strong compatibility with bitumen; its peculiar qualities are highlighted by three indicators: thermal ageing resistance, cold flexibility (-35° C), lower than that of SBS modified compounds, and thermal shape stability (140° C) greater than that of SBS modified compounds. The extraordinary resistance to thermal ageing of this compound is reflected on increased service life of roofing. The Phoenix Super Reflect Protection membranes can be used in any climatic zone and mainly on high thermal insulation roofing. Excellent cold flexibility enables easy adaptation of the membrane during installation, which is an important feature in areas characterized by harsh climate. This compound, due to its specific formula, also has a remarkable behaviour against UV rays ageing and provides excellent walkability during application, essential properties on "exposed surface roofing"; where even the appearance must be impeccable. The compound, after thermal ageing behaviour, does not undergo any kind of decay in both cold flexibility and thermal shape stability.

The reinforcement used in Phoenix Super Reflect Protection membranes consists of a non-woven, polyester fibre, spunbonded and heavy-weight fabric, stabilized with glass, with isotropic behaviour and rot-proof. This reinforcement is defined as "composite", as the excellent mechanical properties of polyester such as tensile strength, elongation and tear strength, are added to the exceptional thermal stability properties of glass. Membranes with excellent dimensional stability ensure high performance and avoid waterproof surface shrinkage even in case of highly stressed roofing. Reinforcements with high mechanical properties - tensile strength, elongation at break, tear resistance - characterize membranes with significant ability to: absorb high stress due to structural movements, laying with mechanical fasteners in areas exposed to strong winds, withstand foot traffic and static weights, with reference to flat roofs waterproofing with heavy protection.
