Low-Temperature SBS Membranes Designed to Extend Roofing Season

Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., announces Elastoflex SA V Polar Base and Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap. Optimized for performance in colder conditions, these resilient roofing membranes save on labor and provide the opportunity to extend roofing season.

Elastoflex SA V Polar Base and Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap allow for roof system installation in temperatures that are between 25°F – 60°F (4°C – 16°C). Designed for long-term performance, Elastoflex SA V Polar Base is fiberglass-reinforced for excellent dimensional stability. Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap has a UV-stabilized granule surface and is polyester-reinforced for exceptional puncture and tear resistance.

“It’s the perfect product to extend your roofing season by several weeks and continue generating revenue” said Polyglass Regional Sales Leader Art Jones.

According to the company, these premium membranes are manufactured with ADESO Dual-Compound Self-Adhered Technology, and they provide a cleaner installation, improve application speed, and eliminate the need for torches. Both base and cap sheets use an SBS (elastomeric) formulation on the top weathering side of the reinforcement and an aggressive self-adhesive formulation on the bottom side. 

The products have unique qualities that improve efficiency and performance, states the manufacturer. Elastoflex SA V Polar Base is finished with laylines for ease of application. Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap features patent pending SEALLap Ultra and patented FASTLap for immediate and more effective bonding of side and end lap seams, saving time and labor costs.

Polyglass to Showcase Self-Adhered Membranes at IIBEC 2020 Virtual Convention and Tradeshow

Polyglass U.S.A., Inc., announced it will be highlighting its modified bitumen membranes, commercial roofing systems, and roof coatings at the IIBEC 2020 Virtual Convention and Tradeshow, taking place June 12-14, 2020. On virtual display will be Elastoflex SA V Plus FR, Polyfresko G SA self-adhered roofing products, and the Velociflex High Wind Resistant Roof Assembly.

The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants Virtual Convention and Trade Show, or IIBEC 2020, will bring together a wide range of professionals specializing in roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall specification and design. The Polyglass virtual booth will include not only product information but also interactive elements, such as a webinar highlighting ADES) dual-compound self-adhered membranes technology. Visitors will be able to chat live with Polyglass experts and download content relevant to their needs.

Polyglass experts will be featuring the Elastoflex SA V Plus FR self-adhered, elastomeric base ply low-slope roofing product for IIBEC virtual booth visitors. The Elastoflex SA V Plus FR membrane is built with ADESO self-adhered technology and a superior reinforced fiberglass mat to ensure strength and excellent dimensional stability to the product, providing a robust membrane that resists natural forces and other factors on the rooftop. When used in conjunction with Elastoflex SA P or other approved Polyglass self-adhered cap sheet, Elastoflex SA V Plus FR provides cleaner application, improved application speed, and removes the need for torches, hot asphalt or bonding adhesives on the jobsite.

Also to be showcased is the Polyfresko G SA; a highly reflective, self-adhered granular surfaced atactic polypropylene (APP) modified bitumen roofing membrane. The Polyfresko G SA membrane performs to ENERGY STAR standards for reflectivity, is a California Title 24 compliant membrane, achieves Class A fire rating, and has been tested to ensure long-term performance in the most extreme environments. Polyfresko G SA membrane is listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) with a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 96.

The Velociflex high wind-resistant roof assembly system provides for high speed wind protection up to 270 psf (pounds / square foot). The core of Velociflex is two or three plies of reinforced modified bitumen membranes. Suitable for new or re-roofing projects, this multi-ply system comprises of a mechanically fastened base sheet, optional interply, and a heat-welded or cold-applied cap sheet. Velociflex is ideal for both steel and concrete decks.

High Wind-Resistant Roofing System

Polyglass announces the new Velociflex high wind-resistant roof assembly system. Independently tested, the Velociflex system provides for high-speed wind protection up to 270 psf (pounds/square foot).

The core of Velociflex is two or three plies of reinforced modified bitumen membranes. Suitable for new or re-roofing projects, this multi-ply system comprises of a mechanically fastened base sheet, optional interply, and a heat-welded or cold-applied cap sheet. According to the manufacturer, Velociflex is ideal for both steel and concrete decks.

The self-venting Velociflex system’s “loose-laid,” mechanically attached base sheet reduces the likelihood of blistering from substrate to membrane. Attached at the seams only, it also limits material and labor costs. Plus, the watertight system acts as a temporary roof once base sheet seams are heat-welded. Fast and efficient to install, the Velociflex system dries in fast, so projects can proceed with phased construction before cap sheet installation. 

Installed with a Polyfresko G cap sheet with initial Solar Reflective Index 96, the Velociflex system complies with 2016 Title 24 Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements and is ENERGY STAR Certified. The Velociflex system is also compatible with a variety of SBS and APP cap sheets from Polyglass, including Elastoflex, Polyflex, and Elastoshield membranes.
