SEALANTS FOR POLYCARBONATE ROOFING

Installing a polycarbonate roof, you’ll need a special purpose roofing sealant that is highly flexible, most of which are best dispensed via a caulking gun.

The HB Fuller Ultra Clear™ product is ideal for translucent roofing installations, this highly flexible sealant will appear white when dispensed, but will dry clear for an easy application, and better visibility.

Important Features of this Roofing Sealant are:

It is Isocyanate & solvent free, has excellent resistance to weathering and UV, and resists yellowing.

It guns out white & dries clear for easy application.

Is highly flexible and is water based making for an easy wash up. It can be painted over, is also mould resistant, and a great alternative to silicone or solvent borne sealants.

Application

As per the instructions on the label, all surfaces need be clean, dry, in a sound condition, as well as being free from dust, grease, oil, and any old sealants or other contamination.

To get the best results, it is best if you wipe all surfaces with an alcohol-based cleaner, using a lint free cloth.

If you are looking for a nice neat finish, we suggest that you apply masking tape to either side of the joint.

Then gently squeeze the trigger to dispense the sealant and then push the sealant into the roofing joint to ensure complete filling.
