The Pace Cart Conversion Kit can help contractors dispense more OlyBond 500 Adhesive per hour.

OMG Roofing Products has introduced a Conversion Kit for the PaceCart that enables contractors to use 15 gallon drums (30 gallon sets) of OlyBond500, rather than 10 gallon Bag-in-Box sets. The Pace Cart Conversion kit (patent pending) is designed for use on PaceCart 2B and PaceCart 3 equipment, and provides contractors with an economical option compared to purchasing new equipment or other retro kits on the market. Once installed, the Conversion Kit can help contractors dispense more OlyBond 500 Adhesive per hour.

Some Assembly Required

Assembly of the 15 Gallon Drum Conversion Kit onto a PaceCart can be completed by one person in about 10-15 minutes. Tools required for the assembly include an Allen-wrench (provided), screw gun with 5/16-in. bit (5/16-in. bit provided), and screwdriver. Assembly on a PaceCart 3 also requires an adjustable wrench.

After installation, contractors have a choice of applying OlyBond Adhesives from either the Bag-in-Box sets or from 15 gallon drums. OMG 15 Gallon Drum Conversion Kits are in-stock and available. In addition, written and video installation instructions are available and on-line here.

Chem Link Expands Penetration Seal System Line

Chem Link now offers a 5-inch E-Curb penetration seal system, the newest size offering in the full E-Curb line of products. Designed to better fit contractor needs, lighter-weight E-Curbs feature interlocking “slip-fit technology,” which is designed to allow for quick assembly and easy installation.

The 100 percent Silicone Sealant seals and repairs roofs, masonry, architectural sheet metal, and metal roof seams and fasteners.

The 100 percent Silicone Sealant seals and repairs roofs, masonry, architectural sheet metal, and metal roof seams and fasteners.

Mule-Hide Products Co. has added 100 percent Silicone Sealant choices to its Silicone Roof Coating System, expanding the color offering to include clear and the packaging options to include 10-ounce tubes.
 
100 percent Silicone Sealant is a mastic version of the Mule-Hide 100 percent Silicone Roof Coating. It is a moisture-cure silicone sealant designed for use in sealing and repairing roofs, masonry, architectural sheet metal, and metal roof seams and fasteners. 
 
The addition of clear sealant allows contractors to complete projects that would otherwise require color-matching. It is available packaged in tubes only.

In addition to clear, the tubes are available filled with white sealant. The plastic cartridges are an option for use in smaller applications or when precision is required. They also can be submerged under water to repair roof leaks, gutters and downspouts.
 
100 percent Silicone Sealant provides adhesion to concrete, masonry, polyurethane foam, EPDM membranes, TPO membranes, aged PVC membranes, aged acrylic coatings, granular cap sheets, wood, metals, Kynar finishes and most other building materials. When using 100 percent Silicone Sealant with a TPO roof membrane, Mule-Hide Si TPO Primer must be applied first. 
 
The sealant has minimal odor, making it contractor- and building-occupant-friendly. Its volatile organic compound (VOC) content of less than 10 grams per liter makes it acceptable for use in areas with VOC restrictions. It does not corrode metals.

Ensure Blister-free Installation of EPDM Bonding Adhesive

EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems.

EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems.

With its fast flash-off, easy application and extended open time, EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive from Mule-Hide Products Co. boosts roofing crew productivity while helping ensure blister-free installations of EPDM roofing systems. The adhesive quickly creates a strong bond between EPDM membranes and a variety of porous and non-porous substrates. It is easily applied using a 9-inch medium nap roller. An extended open time—the period after flash-off during which the adhesive film remains tacky—makes EPDM x-23 Low-VOC Bonding Adhesive a good choice when working with larger EPDM sheets. It also allows sheets to be left open longer, enabling more solvent to escape and further reducing the potential for blistering.

Pipe Flashing Seals in Extreme Environments

316L Stainless Steel Ultimate Pipe Flashing combats the effects of salt water, chloride, extreme sunlight exposure and pipe thermal movement.

316L Stainless Steel Ultimate Pipe Flashing combats the effects of salt water, chloride, extreme sunlight exposure and pipe thermal movement.

Lifetime Tool & Building Products has released its 316L Stainless Steel Ultimate Pipe Flashing, which combats the effects of salt water, chloride, extreme sunlight exposure and pipe thermal movement, the major causes of plumbing pipe flashing failures resulting in roof leaks. Made of true marine-grade stainless steel, the product provides a precision seal to the pipe with a flexible bushing made from an ultra-pure silicone elastomer, which accommodates daily movement from thermal changes on the roof. The pipe seal is reinforced with a solid PVC collar engineered to provide lifelong compression of the seal to the pipe.

Joint and Termination Sealant Designed for Large Joints, Roof Termination Bars

JTS 1 joint and termination sealant from Mule-Hide Products Co. The new JTS 1 joint and termination sealant from Mule-Hide Products Co.allows contractors to quickly and easily seal large joints and roof termination bars – including those submerged under water – with no sagging or shrinking and minimal odor. According to the manufacturer, the 100-percent solids, moisture-cure urethane sealant delivers excellent adhesion to EPDM and PVC membranes, concrete, masonry, wood, vinyl and other common building materials. Primer is required when using it on TPO membranes.
 
The joint and termination sealant is designed to offer exceptional workability for quick, easy application in both dry and wet surface applications. It has a tack-free time of just 30 minutes. The solids content of JTS 1 eliminates shrinking and sagging. The sealant can, therefore, be used to provide watertight closure of joints up to 2 inches wide and 1 inch deep.
 
JTS 1 is isocyanate-free, enabling it to be packaged in durable plastic cartridges without losing workability. Unlike cardboard tubes, the cartridges can be submerged under water to repair roof leaks, gutters and downspouts. They also better withstand the rigors of transportation, storage and jobsite conditions without becoming damaged.
 
Solvent-free JTS 1 has minimal odor. Its volatile organic compound (VOC) content of less than 10 grams per liter makes its use allowable in areas with VOC restrictions. It is available in eight colors – white, black, bronze, gray, limestone, wicker/tan and terra cotta.
