Does BITULINE crack in cold weather?
BITULINE does not crack in cold weathers due to the fact that it is manufactured by adding modified bitumen. Depending to its place of usage, they are manufactured to resist temperatures of -5°C, -10°C and -20°C.
Which colors are available for mineral and aluminous BITULINE?
Mineral and Aluminous BITULINE is manufactured in various colors. Besides, two tone mineral BITULINE membranes are also manufactured in order to be used in shingle details.

Does BITULINE water insulation covers melt in hot weathers?
BITULINE® is applied through melting by welding torch. The melting temperature during application is at least 250°C. In areas where the temperature under shadow reaches 50-55 °C the heat on the roof surface never exceeds 80-85 °C. Thus, the BITULINE water insulation covers applied on the roof do not melt. BITULINE may soften due to heat but this situation does not cause corruption on the surface.
