Fleece Membranes and Urethane Adhesives

In this program the participants will learn about the physical characteristics of different types of fleece-backed single-ply membranes, including EPDM, TPO, PVC, and KEE HP, as well as the benefits of the addition of fleece to the membranes. Benefits of two-part urethane adhesives will be discussed, including reducing VOCs and adhesive order risks, product performance, different methods of application, and packaging. We will review case studies on new construction and re-roofing options, then discuss the benefits to the building owner as well as the sustainability and durability of the roofing assembly.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn the physical properties and uses of fleece-backed membranes.
  2. Understand the benefits of urethane adhesives and how they can be environmentally friendly.
  3. Recognize the options that could assist building owners with unique concerns, including re-roofing or odor infiltrations.
  4. Understand the potential for a durable and sustainable roof assembly by combining proper components with correct design considerations.
