In this work, four representatives of roofing felts are under consideration. Special attention is paid to the mechanical behaviour under the tensile load of the samples. The results of strength tests for the entire range of material work, from the first load to sample breaking, are shown with respect to a specific direction of sample cutting. Moreover, a unique study of the microstructure obtained with the scanning electron microscope and chemical composition determined by energy dispersive spectroscopy of the tested materials is presented. The significant mechanical material anisotropy is reported and moreover argued by microstructure characteristics. In perspective, the outcomes can give comprehensive knowledge on optimal usage of roofing felt and proper mathematical modelling. View Full-Text
