One reason to dread the onslaught of cold weather is the inability to enjoy the speed and safety benefits of Flintlastic® SA self-adhered membranes…until now!
Arctic Edge is a revolutionary, use-as-needed, auxiliary tape engineered to significantly boost Flintlastic SA adhesion in temperatures as low as 35°F. Use the same trusted Flintlastic SA membranes all year long, adding Arctic Edge in critical waterproofing details when needed.
Cold morning? Don’t let it slow down your crew. Kick off your project with Arctic Edge and stop tape use as soon as ambient temperatures reach 50°F (10°C).
December project? Be prepared to complete the job with Arctic Edge. If you end up with an unseasonably warm day, save it for next time.
The proprietary, pressure sensitive acrylate tape is supported by a polyester scrim and comes wound with dual-sided release film.
