Delivering outstanding durability and thermo-stability for PES roofing

Key features:
  • High heat resistance accommodates the bituminous laminating process
  • Excellent stiffness
  • Low shrink in machine- and cross-direction underweight charge
  • Good miscibility with a wide range of resin types
  • Excellent starch compatibility
  • Outstanding durability.

Synthomer’s LITEXTM self-cross-linking styrene butadiene copolymer for PES roofing provides excellent stiffness and thermo-stability up to 200 °C. LITEXTM perfectly complements a wide range of resins, to ensure durable and reliable reinforcement, allowing the fixation of staple-, fibre- and spun-melt PES nonwovens.

Its chemical self cross-linking properties, in combination with custom monomer composition, guarantee excellent mechanical performance. In the final PES fleece reinforcement, this helps to deliver long-lasting roof insulation. You can rely on outstanding performance, regardless of how the bitumen is modified when subsequently applied to the finished roof insulation.

The low odour and low emissions profile of LITEXTM offer superior environmental performance. Our latest patented technology, LITEXTM SkyShield, is free from substances of very high concern (SVHC) and is compliant with the latest regulations from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

LITEX™ SBV 600XSBRLITEX SBV 600 is an aqueous emulsion of a self-crosslinking copolymer of butadiene and styrene.
