25RA Roof Deck Flashing

LeakBarrier® 25RA Roof Deck Flashing is a premium-grade, self-adhered SBS flashing membrane designed for superior moisture protection to seal joints and seams in the roof deck. Its advanced formulation provides robust durability and flexibility, ensuring a reliable barrier against water infiltration under extreme weather conditions. LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing is ideal for enhancing the integrity and longevity of both residential and commercial roofing projects, making it an essential choice for optimal roof deck protection.

APPLICATION AND USES

Use LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing membrane to seal all joints and seams on a roof deck, effectively blocking water from penetrating the structure. Once the flashing membrane is applied, the roof deck can be finished with layers such as roofing felt, synthetic materials, or self-adhering underlayment products manufactured by Tarco. In the event of a primary roof compromise, LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing will safeguard the structure by preventing water ingress between the roof deck panels. Its specially formulated asphalt-based adhesive self-seals around common roofing fasteners like nails and staples, ensuring a watertight seal. LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing adheres well to a variety of roofing materials including plywood, OSB, rigid foam insulation, and metal. It can also be used to prepare a substrate for additional waterproofing applications by sealing wider joint and seam gaps. LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing offers a simple and cost-effective solution for enhancing the water resistance of your building’s roof deck.

PERFORMANCE AND INSTALLATION

  • Prepare the Surface: Ensure the roof deck is clean and completely dry before application.
  • Optimal Conditions: Apply the flashing in dry conditions within the temperature range specified by product application temperature for best results.
  • Application Method: Start at the lower edge of the roof, applying the flashing so that each subsequent piece overlaps the one below it, continue up the roof deck in a weatherboard sequence for correct and effective water shedding.
  • Initial Attachment: Peel back 6 to 12 inches of the release liner, center the flashing over the seam, press it firmly onto the roof deck, and ensure it is properly aligned.
  • Progressive Installation: Gradually remove the release liner while unrolling the flashing, pressing firmly into place as you cover each roof deck joints and seam.
  • Overlap Sections: Overlap flashing sections by 4 to 6 inches. Ensure overlaps are arranged shingle-style to direct water over the lap, not beneath it.
  • Secure Adhesion: Use a hand roller to apply consistent, uniform and firm pressure across the flashing, paying particular attention to the overlaps to ensure a tight bond.
  • Final Coverage: Check building code requirements and cover LeakBarrier 25RA Roof Deck Flashing with a roofing underlayment or felt to protect against the elements.
  • Sunlight Exposure: Avoid exposing the flashing to direct sunlight for extended periods; do not exceed 90 days of direct exposure.
  • Enhanced Adhesion: For improved bonding, especially in cooler weather, use an ASTM D41 primer, water-based acrylic primer or water-based modified primer.
  • Inspection Requirement: Regularly inspect the product for any damage that might affect its capabilities.

Warning

  • Installation Information: Is used as a general guide. Always check building code requirements and product information and data before installation.
  • Material Compatibility: DO NOT install over PVC or silicone roofing materials, as the adhesive used in our products is not compatible with these substrates.
