Is Your Roofing Underlayment Adhesive Up to Par?
As the roofing underlayment market grows, forecast at a CAGR of 5.5%, self-adhered, synthetic materials are likely to further propel it forward. However, while new technology is designed to yield better roof performance, the wrong adhesive can ultimately impede it from meeting desired results.
Learn more about how the right adhesive ensures you're getting the performance you deserve.
Long Term Adhesion
Common adhesive options in the market may oxidize over time. This impacts the adhesion level between the underlayment and the roof deck. However, butyl adhesives do not have this problem. Offering long term adhesion, roofing underlayment that is applied with this adhesive technology maintains performance levels after extended exposure to the elements.
High and Low Temperature Stability
Additionally, butyl adhesives for synthetic underlayment offer superior high and low temperature stability. This means that it is able to bond and maintain adhesion even in temperature extremes. Other options have poor high and low temperature performance. This means that they are more likely to have adhesive failure when in climates with varying temperature levels.
Further, butyl adhesives can be formulated to have flame retardant capabilities. This reduces flames’ ability to spread in the event of a roof fire and increases occupant safety.
Bostik’s butyl adhesives also offer superior protection against severe weather under any roofing material. This helps increase roofing underlayment performance – as well as overall roof performance – and improves roof durability.
