New Specification for Asphalt Shingles Containing Post-Consumer Recycled Content

1. Scope

This specification covers granule-surfaced asphalt roofing shingles that contain recycled materials including post-consumer asphalt roofing shingles.


recycled asphalt shingles; Recycled Content; Post-Consumer Waste; Recycled Rubber; Recycled Plastic


As environmental concerns increase and the roofing industry evolves to adapt environmentally friendly alternatives, new products are emerging that utilizing recycled roofing materials. Generally these recycled materials have already been weathered, so performance-based criteria is needed to verify the durability of this new class of roofing product. Recycled materials can encompass a wide variety of products, so this specification would focus on recycled asphalt roofing products containing post-consumer recycled content. And thus, this provides credibility to claims of circularity.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
