Polymer modified binders for roofing and industrial applications
About 15% of global bitumen demand is for industrial applications like roofing. For those applications, we’ve developed our specialist, polymer modified Shell Caritop binder. Shell Caritop is designed and manufactured specifically for use in the industrial market, by blending selected high-performing polymers with carefully engineered base bitumens
Shell Caritop is a premium alternative to oxidised industrial binders. With properties such as improved dimensional stability for flat and pitched roofing and improved cold bend and adhesion compared to oxidised bitumen – it is designed to help you get the job easily and reduce the risk of damage during installation.
Shell Caritop and carpet tiles
If you’re using Shell Caritop for carpet tiles, it could help you conserve energy too. Shell Caritop for carpet tiles allows for lower mixing temperature during the manufacturing process, which means reduced energy consumption and so reduced CO2 emissions. It also allows for an increased filler content and a wider use of filler types, including fillers from recycled sources, to improve the mechanical performance of the finished tile. So you’ll have the flexibility to pick the one that suits you.
Whatever your industrial application, we can help. Give us a call today.
