Roofing shingles - how it is made? Part 2: Roofing bitumen and fiberglass (subtitles)

We are ready to unveil the secrets of the production of a high-tech roofing material — roofing shingles by TECHNONICOL. Only at first sight the production seems simple. This material incorporates the results of the application of the most advanced technologies; dozens of high-precision machines and mechanisms work towards the only thing: the ideal roofing by TECHNONICOL.

The main components of roofing shingles are fiberglass, bitumen binder and a protective outer layer of basalt granules. In this part, we will show the production process of bitumen binder — a mixture of heavy hydrocarbons obtained from oil, which grants the reliable waterproofing properties to the material, and fiberglass — a non-woven fabric that is responsible for exceptional dimensional stability of roofing shingles.
