Polyfoam receives approval for use on state buildings

Polyfoam Tile Roofing System Receives Approval from California Division of the State Architect for Use on All State-Owned Buildings

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Polyfoam Products, Inc., the recognized leader in polyurethane foam technology, announces that its Polyset Professional Tile Roofing System has been approved for use in California by the state’s Division of the State Architect (DSA). Effective immediately, the Polyset system may be used to adhere roofing tiles on all state-owned buildings, including all public schools and universities.

“This approval breaks California’s decades long tradition of utilizing nothing but the wire tye method when installing tile roof systems on state-owned buildings,” commented Dave Faulkner, market development manager with Polyfoam’s roofing division. “Our Polyset system will allow state-owned buildings with tile rooftops to experience a number of benefits they previously were not afforded, including increased durability, increased walk-ability, reduced energy costs, drastically higher wind uplift ratings and huge cost savings”

The Polyset system utilizes Polyfoam’s Polypro AH-160 polyurethane adhesive, a two component free-rise foam adhesive that provides two to three times more holding power than traditional tile attachment methods.

In addition to Polyset, Polyfoam offers Ecoset and Tite-Set. Ecoset is Polyfoam’s energy-efficient tile attachment system, offering a rooftop R-value nearly four times greater than standard tile roof systems. Tite-Set is the company’s commercial insulation board stock adhesive system.
