Bryan, OH – ALTENLOH, BRINCK & CO. U.S., INC.

Featured for mechanical attachment of insulation is the TRUFAST PA System, which consists of a pre-assembled TRUFAST #12 Drill Point Fastener and 3″ Galvalume Plate, a Magnetic Setter Tool and Fastener Bag, and 29″ Stand-up Electric Power Tool. The company states that up to 33% more area per day can be covered using the TRUFAST Pre-assembled Fasteners over conventional loose screws and plates. Besides impressive efficiency gains, TRUFAST PA Tools and Accessories are said to offer important ergonomic advantages that help maintain worker comfort and productivity. The lightweight, adjustable magnetic setter tool allows a roofer to quickly and accurately place fasteners in the desired fastening pattern without bending over, while the Stand-up Power Tool enable the operator tool to easily and comfortably drive the pre-assembled fasteners to the proper depth. The company states that the simple, practical tool designs require no special training to operate, provide prolonged reliable operation, and eliminate costly downtime and repairs.

For adhesive attachment, ABC TRUFAST offers INSTA STIK™ Quik Set Roof Adhesive from Dow Chemical Company. A proven performer, INSTA STIK™ Quik Set is a one-component, moisture-cured polyurethane adhesive for attaching compatible roof insulation boards to roof decks and substrates. The company claims that INSTA STIK™ Quik Set offers the lowest cost per square of the leading commercial roofing adhesives, requiring up to 25% less material on average. Because it is a single-component foam, INSTA STIK Quik Set is always on ratio, saving the time and concern over mixing two components on the roof. And since INSTA STIK Quik Set Adhesive is dispensed from a portable, disposable, pre-pressurized 30 lb. container, no special application equipment or power source are required.

In addition to other product performance and application advantages, the brochure contains complete ordering information for both the TRUFAST PA System, including pre-assembled fasteners, and Dow INSTA STIK Quik Set Adhesive and dispensing accessories.

The TRUFAST product line includes a comprehensive selection of engineered fastening solutions for commercial roofing and structural applications, including structural insulated panel (SIPs) and log home/timber frame fasteners. TRUFAST Fasteners and Dow Adhesive & Sealant products are available throughout North American through commercial roofing and building materials distributors.
