Sticky solution

Dow Building Solutions has added Instastik Quik Set to its product line, with an improved cure time of three to seven minutes, compared to 20 to 30 minutes for the previous formula. Instastick is a single-component form and therefore is always on the ratio, reducing adhesion failure. Instastik Quik Set is available in a 23-lb. canister, both with and without dispensing equipment, and delivers up to 90-sq.-ft. of adhesive per unit and works in temperatures ranging from 1C to about 43C, allowing installation times to increase over more seasons. Instastik Quik Set is compatible with all extruded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene and polyisocyanurate insulations.

Two-in-one caulking gun

Firestone introduces the FillGard Dispensing Gun to use in conjunction with the FillGard Pourable Sealer. The Dispensing Gun is battery-operated, meaning there are no cords or air lines restricting access to areas where the Pourable Sealer can be applied. The Dispensing Gun can also be converted to a power-driven caulking gun to dispense any of Firestone’s sealants. It is made with heavy steel construction and has a six-speed drive system allowing for varying application rates based on the temperature of specific applications. Each Dispensing Gun kit comes with two rechargeable batteries, one battery charger, a caulking gun conversion kit, a manual drive unit attachment and operating instructions.

Deck out your roof

The new DensDeck Roof Boards from Georgia Pacific are specially designed to tackle persistent challenges in commercial roofing assemblies. DensDeck is fire-resistant, consisting of a non-combustible core of treated gypsum with glass mat facing, is moisture absorbent and highly resistant to mold, and is strong, durable and dimensionally stable, delivering high performance for wind uplift. DensDeck is also extremely versatile, and can be used as a coverboard, fire barrier overlayment, thermal barrier underlayment and vapour barrier substrate. It can also be used in reroof and recover board applications. The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and the Midwest Contractors Association (MRCA) recommend glass mat gypsum boards, like DensDeck, as coverboards in low-slope membrane roof systems.
