Commercial Technical Specification Manual
Modiflex, Torchflex, and Armourplast cap sheets are the top layer in the roofing system. Modiflex is a hot asphalt or cold adhesive applied SBS membrane, Torchflex is a heat-applied SBS membrane, and Armourplast is a heat applied APP membrane. All IKO roofing membranes are engineered to meet, or exceed, industry standards for high performance roofing membranes.
IKO integrates the time-proven waterproofing characteristics of premium grades of asphalt with state-of-the-art polymer technology. The result is a modified bitumen formulation with vastly superior physical properties and performance characteristics. These modified bitumen membranes exhibit enhanced low temperature flexibility, elongation, and moisture resistance. Each membrane is reinforced with a polyester, fiberglass, or a polyester and fiberglass composite reinforcement to add strength and additional performance characteristics. IKO manufactures Modiflex and Torchflex products with granule surfacing for aesthetic appearance and ultraviolet protection. Responding to current needs for highly reflective cap sheets and membranes with superior fire resistance, IKO has developed its ArmourCool and Prevent line of products, respectively. Armourplast is produced in both granulated and smooth varieties, ready for the application of a number of coating or surfacing materials.
The results of this combination of history and technology are self-evident; modified bitumen roofing membranes with superior resistance to aging and weathering. Membranes that are strong, yet flexible enough to accommodate thermal and mechanical stresses. IKO modified bitumen roofing membranes have been engineered and manufactured to address a wide variety of design and application criteria that are outlined in the specifications found in this manual.
