Installing Flintlastic SA Self-Adhered Roof Systems in Cold Temperatures
This video is an overview of the cold-weather installation method for CertainTeed's Flintlastic SA (self-adhered) roof system.
CertainTeed performed numerous field and lab tests to validate this new manufacturer-approved installation method, which incorporates use of a Leister gun or hot air welder gun on elements such as side laps and end-lap details, allows for installs in temperatures as low as 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Traditionally, contractors installing Flintlastic SA roofing were required to install the systems in temperatures of 50 degrees Fahrenheit or above.
By improving on this weather-dependent installation window, CertainTeed frees installers to take on more self-adhered roofing projects and keep crews more productive when temperatures drop.
