CertainTeed® Expands its Innovative Portfolio with First-of-its-Kind Arctic Edge™ Flintlastic® SA Cold Lap Tape

CertainTeed®, a leading North American manufacturer of building materials, announced today the launch of Arctic Edge™ Flintlastic® SA Cold Lap Tape. This revolutionary product is the first of its kind to the market, making it the first approach to solving self-adhered modified asphalt cold weather issues with all-season rolls. This use-as-needed auxiliary tape is engineered to significantly boost Flintlastic SA adhesion in temperatures between 35°F–49°F (2°C–9°).

Designed for low-slope residential and commercial applications to enjoy the speed and safety benefits of self-adhered tape in cold temperatures, Arctic Edge is installed during the course of normal roofing application to boost adhesion at critical interfaces, including perimeter details, sidelaps, and base/interply endlaps - ensuring the roofing system is immediately watertight. Arctic Edge also replaces metal primers, eliminating labor delays associated with longer cold weather cure times. The tape can be installed using a hand-held applicator or a stand-up applicator for longer stretches of side lap application to increase efficiency.

“Historically contractors have had to abandon self-adhered speed during the fall and winter, or try summer and winter grade solutions, hoping they choose right,” said Abby Feinstein, CertainTeed Commercial Roofing Senior Product Manager. “This can be particularly challenging during shoulder months with cold mornings and warm afternoons. Since Arctic Edge Flintlastic SA Cold Lap Tape is use-as-needed, a contractor can plan to use the tape on a project and, if warm weather prevails, save it for the next one. Arctic Edge complements our Flintlastic SA portfolio and allows contractors to efficiently and safely plan projects year-round.”

What’s more, when warm weather returns, Arctic Edge can be easily stored and saved for up to one year until temperature drops warrant its use. Arctic Edge is available nationally and backed by an industry-leading limited warranty. Check with your local distributor for availability.
