AbstractThe effect of heat-ageing on four bituminous roofing membranes, two modified with a tacticpolypropylene (APP) and two modified with styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) was studied using tensile testing and dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMA). The samples were heated at 80oC for 7, 28, 84 and 168 days and were tensile tested at 23, 0, -10, -20 and - 30°C. Each heat-aged sample was also subjected to thermomechanical testing to find its glass transition temperature T,. The results show significant variation in the effect of heat-ageing on tensile strength and elongation of membranes. T, values differ with the modifiers and other ingredients of the membranes and are affected by heat-ageing. The influence of the glass transition zone measured by DM A is also reflected in the tensile test results.
