Carlisle SynTec Systems has introduced ReadyFlash Technology for SecurShield flat and SecurShield HD polyiso insulation products. ReadyFlash Technology allows applicators to manage adhesive flash-off times by choosing between two different-colored facers on every board. ReadyFlash products feature a dark-colored coated-glass facer (CGF) on one side of the insulation board and a light-colored CGF on the other.
Utilizing the sun’s energy, the dark facer accelerates adhesive flash-off while the light facer slows it down. Applicators can choose which side of the board to use, helping to offset environmental variables affecting adhesive flash-off, such as temperature, sunlight, humidity, wind speed, size of crew, current pace and time of day.
ReadyFlash Technology benefits:
- Allows the applicator to speed up or slow down adhesive flash-off time.
- Increases surface temperature of the dark facer up to 50 F (28 C) above ambient temperature.
- Decreases surface temperature of the light facer up to 10 F (6 C) below ambient temperature
- Provides up to two-times faster adhesive flash-off on cooler days and four-times faster on warmer days when utilizing the dark face.
