This line can produce Bitumen and felt covered tiles as well as PVC , but please note that
Tuftco company says that for the line to do Bitumen a couple of things will need to be changed:
1- The heating coils will need to be changed to cooling coils.
2- The applicators will need to be changed to blade applicators. The current applicators are roll applicators.
