AbstractSeveral hundred new roofing materials have become available in the past two decades. This paper describes the materials under three main generic classes: synthetic thermoplastics, thermosetting vulcanized elastomers, and polymer modified bitumens. Comparisons are made with conventional roofing materials and techniques, and some considerations necessary for selecting an appropriate roofing system are discussed.
