Asphalt Saturated Kraft Paper Market- An Overview
Asphalt saturated kraft paper is finished by impregnating kraft paper with asphalt, creating a waterproof material useful for roof construction. Asphalt is majorly obtained from oceans. Firstly, asphalt shingles were developed for roofing, and kraft paper was used as an underlayment to dissolve asphalt and prevent wood sap from being soaked, ensuring that moisture and dust do not enter the roof wood but now they’re used for wall protection and stability.
Asphalt saturated kraft paper, also called building paper has better resistance to bending and moisture compared to asphalt saturated kraft paper and is often known as breathable weather resistance membrane. It could be used as a single-ply or double-ply outside walls of wood-frame buildings and can be applied beneath wood siding, stucco, brick, aluminium, vinyl, or any other type of siding.
Asphalt Saturated Kraft Paper Market- Dynamics
Asphalt saturated kraft paper is designed to prevent humidity and dirt not only on roof but also on the walls. It is pliable and has tear and crack resistance properties when installed on the wall corners. The product is lighter and easier to apply than roofing felt. The elongated fibres in the kraft paper allow it to be a lighter weight product with similar and often better mechanical properties than asphalt felt. The size and weight of asphalt kraft paper also allow more square feet per pallet, which means less storage space on trucks and in warehouses.
Asphalt saturated kraft paper, which is manufactured, tested and rated for use as a weather-resistive barrier in wall assemblies. It is made from a single layer of unbleached, mostly virgin, softwood pulp, which results in a kraft linerboard specifically designed to optimize the saturating process. The resulting building paper has more strength, a uniform fibre structure, smaller pore size that gives it the higher perm levels appropriate for wall systems. The base material is also smoother, more consistent, and denser resulting in more constant asphalt absorption and a building paper that provides a more constant and stable perm rating that consistently exceeds the breathability requirements of a weather-resistive barrier.
Rolls of asphalt saturated kraft paper are available in 1 ply and 2 ply, which saves the labour cost of wrapping a building twice when two layers are required by code. While asphalt kraft paper is not always less costly per roll than roofing felt, its prices tend to be more stable and the product is generally available. Considerable fluctuation in the roofing market makes roofing felt prices more volatile since availability tightens as roofing demand increases.
