Carlisle® SynTec Systems is pleased to introduce ReadyFlash® Technology for SecurShield® flat and SecurShield HD polyiso insulation products. ReadyFlash Technology allows applicators to manage adhesive flash-off times by choosing between two different-colored facers on every board. ReadyFlash products feature a dark-colored coated-glass facer (CGF) on one side of the insulation board and a light-colored CGF on the other.
Utilizing the sun’s energy, the dark facer accelerates adhesive flash-off, while the light facer slows it down. Applicators can choose which side of the board to use, helping to offset environmental variables affecting adhesive flash-off, such as temperature, sunlight, humidity, wind speed, size of crew, current pace, and time of day.
ReadyFlash Technology allows the applicator to speed up or slow down adhesive flash-off time, increases surface temperature of the dark facer up to 50°F above ambient temperature, decreases surface temperature of the light facer up to 10°F below ambient temperature, and provides up to 2x faster adhesive flash-off on cooler days and up to 4x faster on warmer days when utilizing the dark face.
