Polyglass to Showcase Self-Adhered Membranes at the 2020 IIBEC Virtual Canadian Building Enclosure Symposium

Polyglass U.S.A. Inc. will be highlighting its modified bitumen membranes, commercial roofing systems, and roof coatings at the 2020 IIBEC Virtual Canadian Building Enclosure Symposium, a cutting-edge educational program taking place September 22-24, 2020. On virtual display will be Elastoflex SA V Polar Base and Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap, Polyfresko G SA, and PolyFlash 1C.

Polyglass experts will be featuring Elastoflex SA V Polar Base and Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap at the virtual booth. Elastoflex SA V Polar Base and Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap are low-temperature membranes designed for cold weather applications in temperatures that are between 25°F – 60°F (4°C – 16°C). They are designed with unique qualities that improve efficiency and performance. Elastoflex SA V Polar Base is fiberglass-reinforced for excellent dimensional stability, and is finished with laylines for ease of application. Elastoflex SA P Polar Cap has a UV-stabilized granule surface and is polyester-reinforced for exceptional puncture and tear resistance. It also features SEALLap Ultra and FASTLap for immediate and more effective bonding of side and end lap seams, saving time and labor costs.

Also to be showcased is the Polyfresko G SA; a highly reflective, self-adhered granular surfaced APP modified bitumen roofing membrane. The membrane performs to ENERGY STAR standards for reflectivity, is a California Title 24 compliant membrane, achieves Class A fire rating, and has been tested to ensure long-term performance in the most extreme environments. Polyfresko G SA membrane is listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) with a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 96.

PolyFlash1C is a one-component, state-of-the-art, silane modified polyurethane flashing compound designed for sealing and waterproofing roofing details, flashings, and penetrations on a wide variety of roofing systems. PolyFlash 1C has the unique ability to be applied as an immediate, but temporary emergency leak repair over wet or damp surfaces. When combined with PolyBrite reinforcing polyester fabric this product can permanently solve typical and challenging flashing needs.
