Overlayment: Dens-Deck can be specified as an overlay- ment for approved roof insulation boards, such as poly- isocyanurate, wood fiber, and fiberglass insulation. Dens-Deck can be used as a substrate for Tremco cold process POWERply MB and Burmastic systems. Dens-Deck is also used as a substrate for adhered or mechanically attached Tremco Single Ply roof systems.
POWERply APP torch/heat welded systems can also be applied to Dens-Deck, provided the Dens-Deck is primed with an asphalt primer and the torch flame or hot air is not pointed directly at the Dens-Deck during application.
Hot applied BUR systems can be applied directly to Dens- Deck, provided the bitumen mopping temperatures do not exceed 425°F(218oC). Asphalt ply sheets which com- ply with ASTM D 2178 are approved for application direct to Dens-Deck. Fully coated asphalt base sheets and modi- fied bitumen base sheets are not reccomended for applica- tion direct to Dens-Deck in hot applied configurations.
Adhesive Application: Prime concrete and metal deck substrates with Tremprime WB. After primer has thor- oughly dried, apply FAS-n-FREE Adhesive to the substrate in ribbons of fi" to 3/4" (13 mm to 19 mm) diameter beads at the required coverage rate. Set Dens-Deck into the adhesive immediately and step into place. Obtain and read the Specification Data Sheet for Tremprime WB and FAS-n-FREE Adhesive for further information.
Bitumen Application: Hot applied asphalt can be used to adhere Dens-Deck to concrete decks, mechanically attached base sheets, and insulation layer(s) previously secured. Concrete decks must be primed with Tremprime WB or Temprime QD Low Odor and allowed to thor- oughly dry. Adhere Dens-Deck to substrate in a full cover- age of hot applied asphalt at a coverage rate of 30 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. (1.5 kg/m2) ± 20%. Place insulation imme- diately into the hot bitumen and step into place to achieve a solid bond.
Fastener Attachment: Tremco Fasteners and Steel Plates are recommended where mechanical attachment is speci- fied. Do not mix fasteners and discs of different brands unless the combination is Factory Mutual Approved.
Fasteners must be driven perpendicular to the deck. Fastener should be driven tight enough so that the disc will not turn. Do not overdrive the fastener, as the roof board may fracture and become susceptible to loss of attachment.
Precautions: User must read container labels and Material Safety Data Sheets for health and safety precautions prior to use.
