Overview 

SLOPESHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED combines the best properties of a water resistant, vapor permeable membrane and a self-adhering roofing underlayment in one innovative, affordable product. Suitable for all construction types: commercial, institutional, medical and multi-family residential.

 

SLOPESHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED fully bonds to most common roofing substrates providing a water shedding, easy to install, permeable roof underlayment without the use of a primer.

SLOPESHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED fully bonded membrane system provides a continuous air barrier, enhancing thermal performance by controlling air leakage through seams, joints and roof system penetrations.
