Roofing Market Trends & Advantages of Fleeceback Membrane & Urethane Adhesives
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | Course: SDT110
Provider: Carlisle Syntec
In this program the participants will learn the physical performance advantages of fleece membranes that enable them to resist the forces of mother nature such as wind, hail, rain, and cold. In addition they will learn the performance advantages of urethane adhesives that eliminate the dependence on solvents with VOCs or asphalt derived from foreign sources of oil. Several re-roofing advantages afforded by fleece membranes will be covered where you can re-use existing roofing systems and minimize landfill waste. Multiple-ply membrane options utilizing highly reflective TPO or extremely weatherable EPDM as the cap sheet will also be covered.
1. Learn the physical performance advantages of fleece membranes that enable them to
resist the forces of mother nature such as wind, hail, rain, and cold.
2. Learn the performance advantages of urethane adhesives that eliminate the
dependence on solvents with VOCs or asphalt derived from foreign sources of oil.
3. Learn about re-roofing advantages afforded by fleece membranes that can re-use
existing roofing systems and minimize landfill waste.

and the designer will gain an understanding of the different adhesives and core material
options available, which options are more sustainable, and which options are most commonly
used. Participants will also know what to look for in order to successfully specify decorative
hardwood plywood and how the material can contribute to LEED projects.
1. Discuss the basics of decorative hardwood plywood, how it is manufactured, and its
2. Compare and contrast the different types of cores and adhesives that are used to
manufacture decorative hardwood plywood with an emphasis on urea formaldehyde and
3. Discuss the different types of veneer options offered (including species, grading, and cut).
4. Discuss the questions that need to be asked to successfully specify decorative hardwood
plywood and LEED contribution.
