What is a self-adhering roofing system?
A self-adhering roofing system is comprised of a nailable base or self-adhering ply base with a top surface designed to accept a self-adhering roofing membrane, a self-adhering mid ply and a self-adhering cap sheet. CertainTeed’s Flintlastic® SA self-adhering product line is manufactured with premium quality materials, and the roof system specifications have been engineered to provide roofs that offer excellent longevity and performance.
What are the advantages of a self-adhering roofing system?
Self-adhering roofing systems offer several advantages for contractors: no torches, no hot asphalt, no fumes and no mess — all of which means application is much cleaner and faster. Self-adhering roofs are also environmentally friendly because there are no volatile organic compounds in the material. Other advantages of self-adhering roofing systems are the ease of application, minimal equipment requirements and a cleaner work environment. These advantages are even more amazing considering the long system life you can expect.
Where can I use self-adhering roof systems?
Self-adhering roof systems, such as CertainTeed’s Flintlastic® SA products, can be used in various system configurations, depending on the roof requirements. For small projects, such as decks, additions and porches, two-ply systems with Flintlastic® SA NailBase or Flintlastic® SA PlyBase, and Flintlastic® SA Cap Sheet may be appropriate. CertainTeed’s Flintlastic® SA Cap Sheet is available in colors to complement the most popular CertainTeed shingle colors. For larger roofs and commercial applications, three-ply systems consisting of Flintlastic SA NailBase or Flintlastic® SA PlyBase covered with Flintlastic® SA Mid Ply and Flintlastic® SA Cap FR are recommended. Roofs and decks must have proper drainage. Refer to the CertainTeed online technical information for product data sheets and complete specification details.
