When applying Flintlastic SA on slopes exceeding 1" in 12", membranes shall be back nailed. When applied parallel to the slope, Flintlastic SA shall be blind-nailed at end laps 2" in from top edge, 6" o.c. through tin discs and to wood nailers. See General Requirements Section of the CertainTeed Commercial Roof Systems Manual for details.
CertainTeed recommends the use of Flintlastic SA NailBase base sheet in conjunction with all self-adhering membrane roof installations. Flintlastic SA NailBase can be mechanically attached to nailable substrates or applied using hot asphalt (non-nailable substrates). For non-nailable substrates where use of hot asphalt to adhere the base sheet may not be appropriate, Flintlastic SA MidPly or Flintlastic SA PlyBase may be used in lieu of Flintlastic SA NailBase on surfaces properly primed with FlintPrime™ SA. However, note that without the use of a base sheet, the membrane may be difficult to later remove (if necessary) and certain UL and FM listings for the products may not apply. Prior to application of Flintlastic SA products, ensure roofs have positive drainage. Consult the local building official for minimum slope and drainage requirements.
Application of Flintlastic SA NailBase
Beginning at the low point of the roof, mechanically fasten Flintlastic SA NailBase to nailable deck using appropriate fasteners. Start with an appropriate roll width (1/3 or 1/2 roll) to accommodate offsetting of sidelaps of subsequent layers of MidPly and/or Cap sheet. Install so that no sidelaps are against the flow of water. A minimum fastening pattern is every 9" on center on sidelaps and every 18" on center in two staggered rows in the field of the sheet.
Prime non-nailable substrates such as concrete using FlintPrime SA polymer-based primer. Allow to dry thoroughly, but not more than 4 hours to retain tack-enhancing properties. Apply SA NailBase us- ing ASTM Type III or IV hot asphalt* at the rate of 25 lbs. per 100ft2, or self-adhere SA PlyBase (or MidPly).
