  Reformulated Garland StressPly® E High-Tensile Membrane Now More Eco-Friendly

Garland’s newest StressPly® E (Environmental) modified bitumen membrane offers 500 lbf./in. of tensile strength, a variety of post- and pre- consumer recyclable materials, and rapidly renewable resources for increased sustainability. This high-strength, puncture- and fatigue-resistant membrane makes an ideal waterproofing and reinforcement layer for applications demanding a high level of environmental responsibility.

The new StressPly E membrane retains the high-performance capabilities of earlier versions of the product, with the incorporation of environmentally responsible materials. In addition, the membranes can be installed using Garland’s Green-Lock® Membrane Adhesive for 100 percent VOC-free, odor-free application.

Tom Bauer, Garland’s product manager, explains: “StressPly E utilizes the latest in recycled and renewable raw materials in the manufacturing process, resulting in recycled content as high as 39 percent by weight. This helps building owners achieve USGBC LEED® MR 4.1, 4.2 and 6 credits. In addition, a fire retardant is added to the compound during the manufacturing process, enabling it to maintain its fire rating for the life of the membrane.”

Specifically, StressPly E membranes contribute to LEED points through the incorporation of:

  • Post-consumer scrap from recycled tires in the roofing compound
  • Pre-consumer recycled boiler slag as surfacing
  • Pre-consumer crushed porcelain as filler
  • Post-consumer glass bottles as a parting agent
  • Rapidly renewable resources (soy-based oils, bio-based resins, and crushed sea shells), in substitution of petroleum-based resources in the roofing compound
