Course Description: AEC Daily: Advantages of Cold Applied Roofing Systems
When the asphalt fumes, open flame, and kettles that accompany hot-applied roofing are not permissible, cold-applied roofing is an option. There are a variety of types of cold-applied roofing that offer easy portability of materials to the roof, smaller roofing crews, ease of application, and a low-VOC option. In this course, we focus on the adhesive application of modified bitumen membranes using bituminous cold-process adhesives, the adhesive types, their components and characteristics, application methods, and design and use considerations.
Define cold-applied roofing and its benefits over traditional hot-applied systems that present potential health and safety hazards (open flames, asphalt fumes, etc.), increased brittleness, breakdowns, and premature aging and it.
Identify the key components of polymer-modified cold adhesives that combine to offer long-term performance.
Recognize the types of cold-applied roof systems and their advantages in terms of VOC content, waterproofing properties, and performance.
Describe the application methods to ensure a long-lasting, successful installation and the precautions to consider when using cold-applied systems to avoid any indoor air quality and odor concerns.
