Rubber Roofing Contact Adhesive
Contact adhesive used for adhering Classicbond One Piece Rubber Roofing Membranes to non timber surfaces, upstands and around perimeter of roof.
ClassicBond Contact Adhesive
This is a high strength, solvent based bonding adhesive specifically designed and manufactured to withstand the temperature extremes of flat roofing installations. Perfect for bonding ClassicBond the roof deck and vertical surfaces.
Suitable for a range of surfaces e.g. timber, brickwork, metal, PVC & concrete.
Application Up-stands: Use a 4" mini roller to apply contact adhesive to both the up-stand and rubber roofing membrane. It is also good practice to secure the membrane to the deck perimeter with a 150mm width strip of contact adhesive. This will stop the membrane from lifting due to shrinkage. Ensure that the contact adhesive is touch dry before rolling the membrane onto the substrate/up-stand.
Application Non-Permeable Deck: Using a roller apply contact adhesive to both the deck and underside of membrane evenly. Ensure that the contact adhesive is touch dry before rolling the membrane onto the deck approx 5-20 minutes. Note It is not possible to re-position the membrane once stuck down using contact adhesive.

EPDM Rubber roofs have a 50 year life expectancy.
EPDM has been in commercial use since the 1960s. And many of those roofs are still around today.
Yes, EPDM Membranes require the substrate to be dry prior to installation. This is so the the adhesive & primers can effectively bond the rubber to roof deck. EPDM products will not adhere to wet or damp surfaces. Trapped moisture may vaporize and negatively affect the performance of the membranes.
Yes, ClassicBond membrane holds the British Board of Agrément certificate, No. 11/4853 (issued to Flex-R Ltd). It also holds fire ratings for each of the thicknesses available.
We recommentd a minimum tempereture of 5 degrees C for EPDM installation. This is due the the WBA adhesive being water based and lower temperetures may cause the adhesive to freeze over and fail.
