For bonding single-ply PVC roofing membranes

PVC Upstand Contact Adhesive is designed to fix single-ply PVC roofing blankets to upstands and roof detail work.

  • High plasticiser resistance for good adhesion on up-stands 
  • Applied by brush or roller 
  • Apply using a 2-way dry stick OR heat activation 
  • Withstands temperatures of -40°C to 70°C 
  • Shelf-life of 12 months.

Applying with a 2-way dry stick

  • First, clean both surfaces with solvent or abrade with a clean emery cloth 
  • Apply an even film to both surfaces by brush or roller, using a coverage rate of approximately 1.5m2 Kg 0.75m2 of bonded area 
  • Allow both films to dry for up to 10 minutes, or until they can be gently touched without any adhesive being transferred 
  • Join the surfaces together, using as much pressure as possible to avoid trapping any air.

Applying with heat activation

  • Apply the adhesive to both surfaces as above, and allow to dry completely. 
  • Heat both surfaces to 100°C and use pressure to bond together immediately.
