Application of Adhesive for Peel-and-Stick Roofing & Underlayment
Conversion Technologies International prides itself on our work with commercial roofing manufacturers. In fact, we have worked with several different roofing manufacturers to develop and coat their products.
CTI’s Roofing & Underlayment Customer Case Study
When a well-known roofing company wanted to develop a new product–Peel-and-Stick roofing for flat industrial buildings–they approached CTI to work with them in developing and coating the product. This collaboration allowed them time to develop the product and introduce it to the marketplace, testing viability, without investing capital into coating equipment. We were able to use our existing equipment to coat 3′ and 6′ wide material, while allowing the customer to refine the specifications based on test roofs and feedback of their customers.
Since that time, we have worked with several roofing companies to develop both peel-and-stick roofing and underlayment, along with other Peel-and-Stick construction materials. We have also expanded our capability to 10 ft. wide adhesive coating of membranes, and recently acquired a 12′ wide coating line, allowing us to meet current market standards.
