Two-component adhesive cures quickly

Mule-Hide Products Co. Inc. has introduced its Helix™ Low-Rise Adhesive. The adhesive reportedly provides clean adhesion of roof insulations, thermal barriers, cover boards and fleece-backed single-ply membranes to a variety of roof substrates.

Helix Low-Rise Adhesive is a two-component, solvent-free polyurethane foam that requires no mixing before application. Both parts of the adhesive are applied simultaneously in a 1:1 ratio through a static mix tip in continuous ribbons or beads said to cure fully in minutes. The odorless, environmentally friendly adhesive does not require mechanical fasteners and reportedly maintains strong wind-uplift resistance.

Helix Low-Rise Adhesive is available in cartridge twin-pack tubes or two-tank sets. The cartridge twin-pack tubes have a coverage rate of 600 square feet, and the two-tank sets have a coverage rate of 1,000 to 3,000 square feet, depending on bead spacing.
