SOPREMA Inc., has developed a new, time and cost-saving product line, SOPRASMART Laminated Boards, combining their SOPRALENE SBS-modified bitumen membrane and cover board into one installation layer, resulting in application consistency and complete adhesion. By combining the roof membrane and cover board into one layer, installers can gain valuable time on the jobsite, in turn reducing labor cost and increasing overall job efficiency. This patented technology is the first and only of its kind and is available exclusively through SOPREMA.
“We work closely with our customers to create products that are easy to use while providing the same quality and performance that come standard with SOPREMA products,” said Tim Kersey, general manager, SOPREMA U.S.A. “We’re proud to be offering the SOPRASMART family of products, helping installers save time and money while giving them the long-term protection they have come to expect from our SBS-modified bitumen membrane systems.”
SOPREMA’s patented SOPRASMART is manufactured in a controlled setting, utilizing precision heat welding equipment to laminate the SBS-modified bitumen coating of the base ply to the desired cover board. SOPREMA’s bonding technology eliminates the risk of delamination or wrinkling, creating a perfect bond every time. SOPRASMART is produced with membrane overlaps using patented DUO-SELVEDGE technology which seals the overlap and protects the assembly from open flame intrusion when torch welding.
“This is our first time using SOPRASMART and the ease of installment has made our transition seamless,” said Dariusz Ciach, President, PCGNY Corp. “The installation is so fast and easy; our contractors have already seen significant material cost and labor savings.”
SOPRASMART is available in a variety of cover board options including SOPRABOARD®, high-density polyisocyanurate foam board, gypsum panels, and high-density rock wool options. SOPRASMART can be mechanically fastened or adhered using the DUOTACK adhesive.
