In the past, your metal edge options on a PVC roof were extremely limited. You had a choice of white, gray, or tan coated metal before you would be required to step up to an expensive two-piece metal edge system. This is no longer the case!
With the introduction of Versico’s VersiFlex™ PVC Pressure-Sensitive (PS) Cover Strip, the building owner or architect can now use any color Kynar-coated metal they choose.
The installation process for PVC PS Cover Strip looks like this:
- Apply the PVC Step 1 Activator to the membrane surface with a roller. The Activator is the first of two primer steps, which prepare the membrane to accept the pressure-sensitive cover strip.
- Once the Activator has completely flashed-off the, Step 2 Primer can be applied. The primer should cover both the Activator and the metal when applied.
- The third and final step is to install the pressure-sensitive cover strip, after the primer has flashed-off. Unroll a few feet, pull the release liner, and place the cover strip onto the previously-primed surface. Use a hand roller to adhere the strip to the membrane.
Use of the VersiFlex PVC Pressure-Sensitive Cover Strip will save you money, labor, and time on the roof. Utilize this specialized solution product on your current or future PVC roofing job, and experience what contractors have been calling a “game changer.”
