StressPly® Legacy

  • A holistic approach to sustainability
  • Improves outdoor air quality
  • Exceptional weatherproofing and durability

With a multitude of eco-friendly features, StressPly Legacy membranes set a new standard for sustainability in modified asphalt technology. The mineral blend of StressPly Legacy FR Mineral incorporates smog-reducing granules to significantly reduce pollution, while StressPly Legacy utilizes 100% recycled boiler slag. These modified membranes are composed of repurposed polymers that divert materials away from landfills and make use of post-industrial recycled streams: Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS), plastics, crumb rubber from tires, and recycled mineral fillers. The compound consists of 6 different environmentally conscious raw materials, including a high-strength and puncture-resistant reinforcement that contains yarns from recycled plastic bottles. With absolutely no sacrifice in quality, StressPly Legacy membranes maintain Garland’s high performance roofing systems while benefiting the environment.

Smog-Reducing Granules

StressPly Legacy FR Mineral includes unique smog-reducing granules in its mineral surface. These granules are formulated to bond with pollutants in the air surrounding a building. A typical 20,000 square-foot commercial roof has the smog-reducing benefit equivalent to 19 trees.
