RUBEROID® EnergyCap Torch Granule FR

Formerly Ruberoid® EnergyCap™ Torch Plus FR


RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR is fire-retarding modified bitumen membrane with a factory applied layer of TOPCOAT® EnergyCote™ elastomeric coating. RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR is manufactured to stringent GAF specifications. Its core is a strong, resilient non-woven polyester mat that is coated with fire-retardant APP polymer modified asphalt and surfaced with extra fine mineral granules and Topcoat EnergyCote™ Elastomeric Coating.


RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR is designed for new roofing and reroofing applications where long-term roof system performance is specified.


  • Typical system guarantees available for up to 15 years, select system constructions available with up to 20 year guarantee coverage

  • Cost effective — the installed cost of RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR is much less than installing a reflective coating on top of a standard white granule membrane

  • Lightweight — installed premium roof systems weigh less than 3 pounds per square foot

  • Resilient — RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR's polyester mat core allows it to resist splits and tears due to its pliability and elongation characteristics

  • Durable — specially formulated modified asphalt gives RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR lasting performance

  • RUBEROID® EnergyCap™ Torch Granule FR is backed by GAF, a company with over 100 years in the roofing business
