New polymer surface underlayment
MFM Building Products recently unveiled StormStopper FSU™ (film surface underlayment), a 45-mil-thick underlayment composed of an embedded traction surface polymer film laminated to a rubberized asphalt adhesive. This self-adhering product installs under edges, eaves, valleys, skylights and chimneys to protect from water penetration. It is suitable for application under shingle and metal roof systems. Roll size is 36 inches wide by 66.7 feet long and comes with a split-release liner for ease of application. For more information, call (800) 882-7663 or visit www.mfmbp.com.
Testing yields dramatic results
A test group of Canadian roofing contractors was recently supplied with a sheet-metal strip with TPO Direct Weld applied to it and instructed to do a pull test to see how well the TPO bonded. Every strip passed the test! Menzies Metal Products' TPO Direct Weld bonds to TPO membranes so well the membrane will separate at the scrim while the membrane's bottom layer stays bonded to the coating. For more information, call (800) 665-8840.
