It stays where it's mopped, even on steep-sloped roofing in intense heat. Trumbull roofing asphalts exceed ASTM minimum softening points to minimize the risk of slippage and reduce "fallback." High flashpoint raw materials are used to provide added safety. We also widen the spread between equiviscous temperature (EVT) and flashpoint to support application, adhesion and waterproofing.

Sustainability initiatives with asphalt are focused on reducing fumes on the job site, and controlling vapor and emissions during manufacturing. This results in asphalt products that reduce fumes emanating from molten asphalt on built-up roofing (BUR) job sites and low-fuming asphalt products including TruLo and PermaMop . Trumbull asphalt has earned patents for technological advances in controlling emissions generated during manufacturing, like regenerative thermal oxidation (RTO) and additive technologies to reduce NOx and SOx emissions. Owens Corning Trumbull asphalt has developed products and procedures for use in asphalt cutback operations that reduce emissions by as much as 85 percent.
