Increasing Use of Coal Tar Pitch in Roofing will be a Key Market Trend

Coal tar pitch is increasingly being used in roofing as it is resistant to harsh chemicals, ultraviolet (UV) rays, and water that may have an adverse impact on the roofing in buildings. No other roofing product can provide the same cold flow/self-healing property as coal tar. Coal tar's self-healing properties and resistance to harmful elements also contribute to making low maintenance roofs. Such beneficial characteristics of coal tar pitch for roofing are promoting their use over alternatives such as TPO.
