Firesafe 101 is part of a dual component system that is applied using specifically designed equipment. The technological advances in Firesafe 101 give a quick set coating membrane that is solvent free and has excellent strength, elasticity and adhesion.
Firesafe is environmentally friendly containing no harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).
Why choose Cantech’s engineered roof system for your building?
Energy Star like roof products reflect more of the sun’s rays. This can lower roof surface temperature by up to 100F, decreasing the amount of heat transferred into a building. Energy Star like roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce peak cooling demand by up to 30 percent. Our multi-layered system is comprised of several of our proprietary formulas and applied by Cantech certified applicators. The result is a cost effective, long lasting protection and a smart alternative to a costly roof replacement.
- Water tracking is eliminated
- 100% bondable to most substrates
- Lightweight roofing system (14 oz/sq. ft.)
- Significant cost savings, Highest insulation value
- Environmentally friendly, High puncture resistance
- High tensile strength, Freedom of architectural design
Thermography infrared technology provides the most accurate, and economic method for locating subsurface moisture on roofs. The use of non-destructive infrared scanning techniques supplemented with traditional techniques such as electrical capacitance, coupled with a strong roofing background results in an accurate depiction of the condition of a roof system.
Early location and repair of roof problems can mean the difference between a roof which must be completely torn off and replaced, and one which will give years of service to the building owner.
3 Step process applied to roof cross-section:
Step 1: Permadri RubberCoat
is a highly elastomer modified bitumen emulsion which is spray applied as part of a dual fluid application system which produces an instant setting seamless waterproofing membrane for roof waterproofing. Cantech Permadri RubberCoat is used to restore the waterproof performance of tar and gravel roofing (BUR), rolled roofing membranes, corrugated steel roofing, plywood and asbestos panels. Cantech Permadri RubberCoat membrane cures to achieve full performance within hours.
Step 2: Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF)
is produced by spraying a two-component liquid system that forms the water resistive membrane of an adhered roof system. The liquid is applied by a professionally trained contractor. The product can be applied directly to a wide variety of existing substrates such as metal, BUR, concrete, or modified bitumen. Because of the nature of the material, it can be applied to any shape, configuration, or contour and its flexibility is essentially limitless. The polyurethane foam fills every crack and crevice, expands to the designed/desired thickness (base on R-value requirements-a numerical representation of thermal resistance, or the building’s insulation effectiveness), and cures in place instantly. Polyurethane foam has the highest “R value” per inch rating.
Step 3: FireSafe 101
is the next generation of fire resistance coatings specifically designed to be the first line of defense.
A highly flexible, fire resistant membrane. FireSafe 101 provides unmatched UV and waterproof protection to provide a coating that is a level above its competitors. FireSafe 101 is a cold applied single component product that can be applied to a variety of substrates in several colours and creates a safe working environment.
