Non-Woven Fabric

Non-Woven Fabric is a spun-laced, textile material composed of staple fibers hydraulically entangled to form a strong reinforcing membrane for cold roofing mastics. Composed of 100% polyester, Non-Woven Fabric has excellent conformability and elongation. The open aperture design allows mastics to flow through and form saturated rather than a laminated roofing membrane.

Advantages
  • Light weight with high tensile strength
  • Maintains it’s physical properties when wet
  • Non-raveling, has excellent tear strength, and is resistant to chemicals and solvents
Basic Uses

Non-Woven Fabric has been successfully used with American WeatherStar’s Acrylic, Butyl, Silicone, and Urethane coatings. Using a three course method, apply a layer of AWS coating in the area to be waterproofed, then embed the Non-Woven Fabric into the wet coating. Apply an additional layer of AWS coating over the top of Non-Woven Fabric. Be sure to completely encapsulate the fabric with coating.

Sizes Available

2”x100′, 4″x360′, 6″x360′, 12″x360′, 20″x360′, 36″x360′


Seam Tape

Seam Tape is a pressure sensitive seam sealing tape with Dupont Sontara® Fabric backing bonded onto 20 mils of butyl rubber adhesive. AWS Seam Tape stays flexible, even at low temperatures, to allow for the expansion and contraction of the substrate. AWS Seam Tape has an aggressive grip with superior adhesion to produce an immediate, water tight seal. Containing no harmful VOC’s, the product is environmentally safe.

Advantages
  • Light weight with high tensile strength
  • Maintains it’s physical properties when wet
  • Extremely flexible allowing for expansion and contraction at seams and penetrations
Basic Uses

Seam Tape is recommended for sealing seams and penetrations on metal, EPDM, TPO, and PVC commercial roofs. Seam tape can take the place of the Non-Woven Fabric and offer greater strength. Be sure to top coat seam tape with an AWS Coating.

Sizes Available

3″x50′ (Case of 16), 4″x50′ (Case of 12), 6″x50′ (Case of 8)


Solvent Cleaners

Xylene and Mineral Spirits are essential to roofing contractors installing solvent based fluid-applied systems. The key difference in what we provide versus what you may find elsewhere is these solvents are not recycled. It is critical that roofing contractors use a pure solvent when cleaning to avoid expensive repairs to equipment. 

Basic Uses

Xylene is used with AWS Urethane and Butyl coatings. Mineral Spirits is used with AWS Silicone coatings.

Sizes Available

5 gallon
