One-piece flexible corner flashing shingle
Rite Products introduces FLASH-RITE corner shingles made specifically for the corners of flashings. They can be used on the right or left side and are flexible enough to form to any roof slope. They eliminate the need to rely on roof slope at the critical corners of base flashings. They are available in aluminum and copper and install quickly with standard step flashing components.

Rubber tape seals leaks and reinforces joints
Karnak Corp.'s 550 Patch-N-Go is a series of self-sealing, highly adhesive hybrid butyl rubber tapes. These tapes seal a variety of roof coverings such as EPDM, Hypalon,® metal, and most TPO and PVC membranes. They also can be used on rooftop equipment and other building materials such as concrete, gypsum board, plastic, glass and wood. Each tape has protective film options of silver, black or white aluminum, polyester fleece or double-sided. Visit www.karnakcorp.com for more information.
Testing yields dramatic results
A test group of Canadian roofing contractors recently was 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.
