Mastic asphalt is renowned for being tough, durable, long lasting and outperforming the competition, but it’s also one of the most sustainable and greenest building materials available, helping specifiers and architects achieve the highest BREEAM rating possible.
Having worked long and hard to minimise the environmental impact of this durable material, the Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) has aided the development of low melt temperature, polymer modified mastic asphalt that cuts carbon emissions by 13% without losing any of the product’s desirable performance qualities.
Emphasising its outstanding green credentials and 50 year life expectancy, MAC’s manufacturing member also set a precedent for others to follow by achieving the CarbonZero standard. The organisation actively encourages superb environmental management from everyone involved in the mastic asphalt industry.
Mastic asphalt is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life. It can be recycled and broken down into hardcore or used in mastic asphalt roof screeds, helping protect the environment as well as the building for years to come.
With its sustainable performance guaranteeing a high BREEAM score, mastic asphalt can be integral in any building design where an A+ rating is required.
This means the world-beating waterproofing solution can comfortably be specified on any green project, safe in the knowledge it will minimise the threat of climate change.
With the concerns of future construction and sustainability becoming ever more important, MAC is proud to have taken steps to ensure a greener future – by representing a durable and long lasting waterproofing membrane with minimal environmental impact.
