In the past, metal edge options on a PVC roof were extremely limited. Applicators had a choice of white, gray, or tan coated metal unless they were willing to step up to an expensive two-piece metal edge system. This is no longer the case.
With the introduction of Carlisle’s Sure-Flex™ Pressure-Sensitive (PS) PVC Cover Strip, the building owner or architect can now choose any color Kynar-coated metal that they prefer.
The PVC PS Cover Strip installation process looks like this:
- Apply the PVC Step 1 Activator to the membrane surface with a roller. The Activator is the first of two primer steps that prepare the membrane to accept the pressure-sensitive cover strip.
- After the Activator has completely flashed-off, the Step 2 Primer can be applied. Ensure that the primer is covering both the Activator, and the metal.
- The third and final step is to install the pressure-sensitive cover strip once the primer has flashed-off. Unroll a few feet, pull the release liner, and place the cover strip onto the previously-primed surface. Adhere using a hand roller.
Use of the Sure-Flex PVC Pressure-Sensitive Cover Strip will save money, labor, and time on the roof. Utilize this problem-solving product on a current PVC roofing job, and experience what applicators have been calling a “game changer.”
