Our first live webinar of 2012 will kick off on Thursday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Dennis Kelley, National Brand Manager for Chem Link Products, will talk about the benefits of polyether-based adhesives and sealants in a presentation titled Why Contractors Like Polyether Technology,” sponsored by Chem Link Inc.

According to Kelley, one key benefit of these adhesives is the elimination of solvents and the numerous problems associated with these chemicals — an important consideration, especially with new VOC guidelines to consider. He plans to cover the roofing applications for four representative polyether products: a sealing compound for flashing and patching; an all-purpose adhesive for bonding shingles, seams, coping and other roofing components; a sealant for installing penetration seals; and an adhesive for bonding single-ply membrane on low-slope roofs.

I’ll be moderating the webinar, and I hope to see you out there in cyberspace. Remember,
