RCI: Weather-Related Effects on the Installation of Fully Adhered Single-Ply Systems


Zebonie Sukle and Todd Nathan of ERA member company Johns Manville have presented a paper at the 30th Annual RCI Convention and Trade Show in San Antonio, TX. According to the Abstract:

"This presentation is about the relationship between temperature and dew point differentials and the impacts they may have on the performance of adhesives. Two case studies will be evaluated along with supporting lab data to highlight the importance of understanding environmental conditions and the role they play in proper adhesive drying. Due to environmental concerns and code restrictions with solvent-based single-ply adhesives, the use of water-based (WB) and low-VOC, solvent-based (lVOC) adhesives is becoming much more popular in the low-slope roofing market."
