BRANTFORD, Ontario, Feb. 6, 2018 — GreenMantra Technologies, a leading clean technology company that produces high-value polymer products from waste plastics, is introducing new applications for its Ceranovus polymer additives within waterproofing and underlayment roofing applications. The company will highlight the uses and benefits in these new applications at the International Roofing Exposition, Booth #2556, Feb. 6-8 in New Orleans.
Laboratory and field testing demonstrates that the Ceranovus additives can help manufacturers of waterproofing and underlayment materials improve product performance and reduce manufacturing costs. The polypropylene- and polyethylene- based additives can also be custom-formulated to meet specific requirements.
Ceranovus polymer additives improve end-product performance by:
In addition, the additives can help lower formulation viscosity by up to 65 percent, enabling manufacturers to reduce their production costs. A less viscous formulation flows more freely, enabling better penetration of the fiberglass substrate mat, faster line speeds, and reduced energy costs. Lower viscosity also offers greater flexibility in formulations, allowing increased use of filler materials.
With these additives, manufacturers can enhance the environmental profile of their finished products. Because Ceranovus polymer additives are made from 100 percent recycled plastics with third party certification for recycled content, end products which incorporate them may qualify for environmental and green building industry certification such as the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED credits.
Based in Brantford, Ontario, GreenMantra Technologies utilizes a proprietary thermo-catalytic system and patented process to cost-effectively convert and “up-cycle” waste plastics, including hard-to-recycle materials such as grocery bags and film, into high-value polymers and other specialty chemicals. These materials have a broad range of applications in the roofing and paving, coatings, plastics processing and adhesives industries.
