New adhesive for cold winter days

New adhesive for cold winter days

KO Polymeric has launched a brand new adhesive for cold winter days. Generally both PU Adhesives and contact adhesives are advised not to be used if the temperature is below 5° C, leaving the roofing contractor with no choice other than using mechanical fixings. However, a mechanically fixed roofing system might not always be the best solution for the project specification.

KOpro PUMA Zero adhesive can be applied at temperatures as low as zero C° degree and used for adhering both insulation boards and fleece-backed single ply membranes. The adhesive contains no solvents and cures in minutes, making the installation quick and easy for the roofing contractor by also providing significant labour savings.

Richard Walgate, Managing Director at Robseal Roofing says; “We used IKOpro PUMA Adhesive as a trial and the feedback from the site team was very positive. We found it easier to apply than the other adhesives and liked the fact that we could use it for bonding both the membrane and insulation boards. What’s even better is we could still carry on working at temperatures where we would normally struggle.”
