StressPly Legacy is the next generation of Garland’s flagship StressPly family of high-performance modified bitumen membranes. It includes 40% recycled and biobased raw materials, features smog-reducing granules in its mineral surface and was developed with a 360-degree approach to sustainability, including biodegradable packaging, carbon-neutral shipping and a tree-planting service initiative.
Formulated with 29% pre-consumer, 9% post-consumer and 2% biobased raw materials, each roll recycles 20 plastic bottles into the fibers of the high-strength reinforcing scrim, and each batch includes enough recycled crumb rubber to keep eight tires out of a landfill. The smog-reducing granules in the mineral surface are activated by sunlight to chemically bond with nearby smog molecules. A 20,000-square-foot commercial roof will have an estimated smog-reducing benefit equivalent to 19 trees.
