Asphalt roofing shingles continue to be the most commonly used material in the United States. Our ‘A – Z’ capabilities range from preparing fluxes for air blowing (oxidation) from crude by distillation, to prototype compound development (air blowing or polymer modification), through comprehensive performance property evaluations (including accelerated and outdoor weathering) of finished /prototype products.
Asphalt / bitumen testing is not just about meeting regulatory agency requirements; it is also an important factor in new product research and development.
