Underlayment offers fast installation

Tarco has made available LeakBarrier Fast90 self-adhering tile underlayment to be used for tile and slate roof system applications. Said to offer easy and quick installation, the underlayment has a peel-and-stick, self-adhering bottom side that features a high-tack, SBS-modified bitumen compound protected by a release film. A coating of SBS-modified bitumen and asphalt makes the bottom side tacky, and adhesion strength is 30 pounds per foot of length. The granulated asphalt coated top side is said to withstand the weight and stresses of the tiles, and the tiles can be stacked 8 to 10 high with no negative effects.

The underlayment has no exposure limitations. Application is odor-free and involves peeling the release film and rolling out the membrane. The lightweight sheets are available in white and cedar blend.
