Innovative solutions in modified bitumen

H.B. Fuller Innovative Solutions in Modified Bitumen
May 30, 2024 at 12:00 p.m.

By H. B. Fuller. 

Learn all about how commercial roofing systems are evolving and how there are more options for contractors than ever before. 

In a significant shift for construction and roofing industries, evolving VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) regulations across various regions have effectively curtailed the use of solvent-based mastics as a bonding method for materials in many regions. These regulations, aimed at reducing the environmental and health impacts associated with VOC emissions, are reshaping the choice of materials and methods on construction sites. Further compounding the changes in the field, the World Health Organization (WHO)'s declaration of oxidized hot asphalt vapors as a probable carcinogen has also impacted the options for adhering modified bitumen membrane roofing.  

The implications of these changes are far-reaching. Industry professionals are now tasked with seeking out and adopting new materials and methods that comply with health and environmental standards without compromising on the quality and durability of construction. This transition not only affects the choice of bonding agents but also demands innovation and adaptation in construction practices at large. 

One of the leaders in this innovation and adaptation process is H.B. Fuller. Since 1887, they have been a leading global adhesives provider focusing on perfecting adhesives and sealants to improve products and lives. With fiscal 2022 net revenue of $3.75 billion, H.B. Fuller’s commitment to innovation and sustainable adhesive solutions brings together people, products and processes that answer and solve some of the world's biggest challenges. When it comes to the changes in VOC and WHO regulation, H.B. Fuller has invested thousands of hours of R&D time to develop revolutionary new membrane attachment adhesives that are easy to apply, quick setting and VOC-compliant. The Millennium Hurricane Force® Membrane and Flashing Adhesives are based on solvent-free cold applied urethane technologies. These adhesives improve jobsite safety by removing torches, hot asphalt kettles and other fire hazards from the rooftop. Simultaneously, these modified bitumen roofing adhesives improve the experience for building occupants by eliminating the odor and noise normally associated with conventional modified bitumen roofing.
