Selecting The Appropriate Roofing Adhesive For Flat-roof Applications - Continuous Online Event - Sponsored By 3M Building & Commercial Services Division
This course will give provide an overview of roof construction common in commercial buildings, and offer a specific examination of multi-layer roof applications typical of flat-roof construction. Because flat roof construction has unique challenges and durability issues associated with water, selecting an adhesive system that will complement the roof structure is important. This learning unit will also explore productivity and material costs issues related to flat roof construction. Finally, this course will offer the student an opportunity to learn how to successfully choose the most appropriate adhesive for flat roof construction by comparing and contrasting different types and styles offered by manufacturers today. Although many adhesives may seem similar, each brand and type has a specific set of attributes related to durability, strength, healthfulness, cost, and ease of use that can greatly impact the performance of the roofing system. Properly selecting the best adhesive based on these attributes is a critical part of the material selection, productivity, and quality assurance aspect of the construction project.
