Low-solvent roof coatings as well as adhesives for bituminous felts
Solvents have a significant negative impact on our environment as they are readily volatile and mostly environmentally hazardous. Also, the users of solvent-containing bitumen products are exposed to these solvents. In order to reduce these environmental and health impacts research and development have led to the manufacture of new bitumen-emulsion-based products which are safer for both the environment and the user and, at the same time, improve the quality and the serviceability properties of solvents. It is mostly the private final consumer who buys protective bituminous coatings at a do-it-yourself store and processes them as well.
