Does Roof Maxx pose a fire risk?

Testing has found and proved that Roof Maxx treatment has no effect on fire risk or spread of flame on an asphalt shingle roof. During its development, Roof Maxx was tested by The Ohio State University Department of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering in line with the standards of the American Society for Testing. Roof Maxx was subjected to a number of safety and functional tests, including fire safety.

It’s interesting how they answered the question, “Does Roof Maxx pose a fire risk?” Two roofs were tested. One was treated with Roof Maxx, and the other was not. The edges of both roofs were ignited with gas torches and burned for 10 minutes. 

After the test, the damage caused by the flames was examined and measured. The two roofs showed no difference: the spread of flame and the flame damage was the same on the treated and the untreated shingles. The conclusion? Application of Roof Maxx does not increase the risk of fire or the rate a fire will spread.

Ohio State University testing showed evidence that Roof Maxx significantly enhances shingle flexibility, adhesion, and hail resistance. It also restores shingle permeability closer to that of new shingles.
