Fast-setting Roof Assembly Adhesive
January 31, 2002
Chem Link Inc., Kalamazoo, Mich., introduces a new, moisture-cure, solvent-free Roof Assembly Adhesive formulated to secure fleece-backed membranes with approved insulation to steel and concrete decks. The product was designed to minimize or eliminate the need for mechanical fasteners in deck construction. It provides a fast set time and can be applied down to 30 degrees F. Using a “stand-up” quart-caulking gun, this adhesive can be applied at a rate of five to six squares per hour. On large jobs, a hydraulic applicator unit can install up to 30 squares per minute. A distinctive and highly visible bright orange color helps assure precision application and coverage. The adhesive does not contain solvent, so it will not damage EPS insulation.
