Roofing Design Considerations: Foams & Facers

BEC
October 08, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Location
Virtual Meeting via Zoom
Posted by Jeff Diqui

AIA CREDIT: Yes

ABSTRACT:

This presentation will focus on adhesive low rise foams and polyisocyanurate facer types. Low rise adhesive foams have replaced asphalt as the go-to adhesive for the roofing industry. These foam adhesives have advantages and disadvantages. Knowing these advantages and disadvantages and being able to recognize potential issues early in the design phase or early in construction can save a project from failure and or litigation. In another portion of the presentation attendees will be shown the different types of facers used in polyisocyanurate production, and the literal strengths and weaknesses of each in roofing designs.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Differentiate the different application methods for low rise foam adhesives    
  • Have a basic understanding of the chemical principals of these foams
  • Know the benefits and risks of using low rise foams
  • Understand the most common polyisocyanurate facers in production and their design advantages
