TruLo Max®

trulo-large.jpg
TruLo® Max is a low-odor, low-fuming asphalt that delivers top roofing performance. Our proprietary odor- and fume-reduction chemistries reduce asphalt odor with a unique, dual-technology solution that results in low odor – neutralizing asphalt odor without impacting performance – thanks to a polymer ingredient that forms a fume-suppressing skim layer on the asphalt surface at the kettle.
Trumbull TruLo® Max asphalt produces 60% less odor compared with our standard asphalt and is 55% more effective at reducing odor-causing compounds when compared to leading competitive low-odor asphalts and additives.  According to a National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health study, TruLo®Max reduces up to 90% of fumes at the kettle. The result: No messy or dangerous additive mixing at the kettle and controlled fumes at the kettle and odor on the roof.
Available in packaged asphalt only at distributor locations nationwide.
