Polycarbonate Roofing

Polycarbonate roofing are roofing panels made from a translucent plastic that comes in a variety of colours, widths, lengths and thicknesses.

The roofing panels are most commonly used on outdoor living areas and pergolas, but are also widely used in greenhouses, shopping centres, sporting complexes and covered walkways.

The Advantages of the Polycarbonate Roof are:

  • More flexibility due to moulding capabilities which makes it quite suitable material for a curved roof.
  • Cost lower than glass. A light weight material makes installation a lot less expensive than glass as the roof frame can be a lighter framework.
  • More light compared with other outdoor roofing materials, up to 85% of all available light is transmitted with a polycarbonate roof.
  • Less fading as it has a much higher softening temperature so the colours won’t fade in the hot or cold weather conditions.

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, resists yellowing. It guns out white & dries clear for easy application. Is highly flexible, water based, and makes 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, 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.
