Modified Bitumen (MB) is asphalt with modifiers mixed in that make it seem like it has properties similar to plastic or rubber, which makes it a lot more durable. It usually has 6 or more layers that are bonded together. It has a very strong resistance to fire and moisture,. and also a high tensile strength that resist extreme swings in weather temperatures and damage from objects that it may encounter. And finally, MB has one of the lowest prices per square foot for a flat roof.
Armadillo Roofing is Austin’s commercial roofing leader of modified bitumen roofing systems (MBRs). Modified bitumen is an evolutionary offshoot of asphalt roofing. That is, while we use asphalting roofing materials in our MBR applications, we amalgamate them with a series of solvents and modifiers to optimize them.
