I’m a big believer in using physical representations to showcase your products. I’ve always found it easier to explain the benefits of a roof coating system using sample boards. With Ecodur, I like to have clients beat, hammer, scratch, and generally abuse my samples to help them see how strong the product really is. Now that I am working with other contractors and helping them get started with the Ecodur roofing system, I needed a bunch of sample boards. So, I set out to make more boards than I have before. Making them is time consuming and there are costs involved, but I definitely believe they are worth it.
For these samples, I wanted to demonstrate how well both acrylic and silicone adhere to Ecodur as well as having some with pull tape embedded and some of the product alone. I always start my sample boards with SBS self adhered cap sheet on plywood. The peel and stick is a lot easier than torching and represents the most common substrate in my area.
