by Brianna Crandall — September 27, 2017 — FiberTite Roofing Systems just announced the launch of its new temporary roofing membrane, FiberTite Blue Roof. FiberTite Blue Roof Temporary Roof Membrane is designed for use on flat commercial and industrial roofs, or sloped roofs, as a temporary roof membrane for damaged roofs until permanent repairs can be made, or as a temporary roof for tear-off areas or new construction until the final roof assembly can be installed.
Since 1979, FiberTite, a roofing system for commercial facilities, has demonstrated a high level of resistance to puncture, tear, ultraviolet (UV) rays and chemicals, says the company. The FiberTite Blue Roof is a fabric-reinforced thermoplastic roof membrane designed for use on flat commercial and industrial roofs to offer a temporary solution for damaged roofs until permanent repairs can be made.
The coating on the temporary roof membrane provides UV resistant performance for up to one year, and abrasion resistance. The fabric reinforcement provides both tear and puncture resistance. It is available in rolls, 100″ wide x 100′ long. It is ideal for damage caused by disastrous weather events such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, or also for tear-off areas or new construction until the final roof assembly can be installed.
The temporary membrane can be made watertight by conventional commercial hot-air weld seaming equipment. Alternate temporary seaming and sealing methods may include the use of FiberTite FTR-101 General Purpose Sealant, waterproofing caulk sealants, or adhesive tapes including Duct-Tape. FiberTite accessories, such as molded pipe seals and corners, flashing membrane and FiberTite FTR-101 Sealant, can be used to temporarily seal roof penetrations.
