Alabama Metal Industries Corporation (AMICO) is proud to announce the launch of SPEED BEAD – a new patent pending self-adhering weather resistant casing bead with built-in backer rod.
This highly innovative product creates a weatherproof seal around windows, doors and openings which eliminates the need for caulk on veneer stone and stucco applications.
SPEED BEAD can save contractors up to 40% on labor in addition to several tubes of caulk per opening. This patent pending design incorporates our high tech SPEED BOND adhesive which is specifically designed for bonding plastics in extreme temperature outdoor applications ranging from -40 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Similar materials are utilized in the automotive and aerospace industries where critical bonding, thermal expansion and excellent weathering and sealing properties are required.
SPEED BEAD also features the latest in flexible bulb technology. A contoured adhesion surface combined with a variable wall thickness design works in concert to provide a solid adhesion to the bonding surface.
SPEED BEAD has been independently lab tested to exceed ASTM E330/E330M-14 (load test), ASTM E331-00 (Water Resistance), and ASTM E283-04 (Air Infiltration). SPEED BEAD is available in three colors, white, tan and gray to match a wide variety of finishes.
Cut it, Peel it, Stick it – it’s that fast.
