Waxes are made from recycled plastics
GreenMantra™ Technologies has introduced its Ceranovus™ polypropylene waxes produced from post-industrial
plastic waste and post-consumer recycled plastics. Ceranovus polypropylene waxes reportedly can be used in asphalt
roofing to stabilize or increase the softening point of commercial, residential or peel-and-stick roofing products.
The waxes also can decrease penetration in some formulations and improve compound stability and impact resistance.
Ceranovus A series polypropylene waxes are designed for applications that are not color-specific, and Ceranovus G
series polypropylene waxes are designed for color-sensitive applications. Made with 100 percent recycled materials,
Ceranovus polypropylene waxes can help buildings qualify for LEED certification.
Waterproofing membrane resists punctures
W.R. MEADOWS® Inc. has made available its CLAY-TITE Bentonite Waterproofing Membrane, a dual-layer membrane made
with HDPE, sodium bentonite and a nonwoven polypropylene protective layer. HDPE waterproofs the membrane; bentonite's
self-sealing capability reportedly provides puncture protection under hydrostatic conditions; and the membrane's
polypropylene fabric is said to protect the bentonite on a job site. Designed for use below grade, durable CLAY-TITE
Bentonite Waterproofing Membranes can be used in vertical and horizontal applications and installed in all weather
