Advantage of Fiberglas Shingles Over Organic Shingles

Asphalt shingles come in two basic types:

A) Organic Shingles B) FibreShingles

A) Organic Shingles

  • Organic shingles consist of an organic felt material which is generally paper saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof
  • A top coating of adhesive asphalt is then applied and the ceramic granules are then embedded
  • Organic shingles contain around 40% more asphalt than their glass fiber counterpart This extra needed asphalt makes them less environmentally friendly
  • The paper-based nature of organic shingles leaves them more prone to fire damage, and their highest FM rating for fire is class B.

B) Fiberglass Shingles

  • Fiber Glass shingles has a fiber glass reinforcing mat manufactured to the shape of the shingle. This mat is then coated with asphalt which contains mineral fillers. The purpose is for reinforcement
  • WinRoyal Asphalt Roofing
  • Fiberglass shingles typically obtain a class A fire rating as the fiberglass mat resists fire better than organic/paper mats
  • The advantages with a fiberglass mat core are improved fire resistance, lighter weight (the fiberglass is naturally much thinner than a paper based felt) and a longer expected roof life.

Laminated Fiberglass Shingles is slowly replacing Organic Shingles in Canada and has replaced mostly all in the United States and is now the most preferred shingle option.

WinRoyal Roofing  offers IKO’s Laminated Fiberglass Shingles in various color options.

IKOLaminated Fiberglass Asphalt Shingles

PRODUCT INFO.

The IKO Asphalt Shingle Roof consists of mainly asphalt saturants, coatings and fibreglass base materials. These components are then combined during the production process. Asphalt is a unique material which occurs both naturally and as a by-product of crude oil refining.

Base layer is of glass fiber which is reinforcing mat for Asphalt. The glass fiber mat is made from wet, random-laid fiberglass bonded with urea formaldehyde  resin.

The mat is then coated with asphalt which contains mineral fillers and makes the fiberglass shingle waterproof.

Two distinct layers are  then laminated  together with asphalt sealant and thereby combing the strength of two shingles for better quality.

Fiberglass shingles typically obtain a class A fire rating as the fiberglass mat resists fire better than organic/paper mats.

  • A base material is made of fibreglass mat

Serves as the matrix which supports the other components and gives the product the strength to withstand manufacturing, handling, installation and service conditions.

  • A specially-formulated asphalt coating

    Provides the long-term ability to resist weathering and remain stable under severe service temperature extremes

  • A surfacing of weather resistant mineral granules

    Shields the asphalt coating against the UV rays, adds colour to the product and provides fire resistance

  • IKOScotchgard Algae Resistant Roofing System. **

    IKOPremier Laminated Fiberglass Shingles are also available with the scotchgard Algae resistanr, which warrants that your roof will remain algae resistant for 20 years.

    In algae-resistant shingles, a portion of the granules contain leachable copper ceramically coated, designed to protect against discoloration from algae on the roof. This does not protect from moss  growth but does slow the growth.

    ** Available only for projects.
