Shield Mastic Asphalt
Description

Shield Mastic Asphalt is used in a wide range of construction applications; both new build and refurbishment, where a smooth, seamless, durable surface is required.

Shield Mastic Asphalt is a dense, waterproof material that consists of a mixture of bitumen, limestone, and various aggregates. Unlike standard asphalt, mastic asphalt contains no pores and is laid in a hot, molten state that solidifies to form a hard surface.

Mastic Asphalt is a versatile material used primarily for paving and roofing making it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.  

Key Features
  • Durability: It can last up to 60 years if properly installed and maintained, significantly longer than many other roofing materials
  • Completely impermeable, it is an excellent waterproofing material
  • It is resistant to extreme weather conditions, from torrential rains to freezing temperatures
  • Flexibility allows it to adjust to slight structural movements, which can be particularly beneficial in areas prone to settling or other minor structural changes
  • Its longevity and resistance to wear and tear means that it requires little maintenance
  • Made from natural materials and is 100% recyclable, reducing the need for raw materials and minimising waste
  • A cost-effective option due to its lifespan and minimal maintenance requirements
