There are a few ways for application of roofing adhesive to membranes, and which method you choose will depend on the type of roofing project planned.
The water based deck adhesive can be applied either to the roof deck area, or to both the deck and membrane using a pad system for the detailed areas; and rollers for the larger expanse of a deck surface area.
FAQ: What is the difference between water based deck adhesive and bonding adhesive?
Bonding adhesives are a much stronger adhesive, used for bonding to most materials in addition to timber and is used around the edges of the EPDM, on up stands, bonding to brickwork or stone where an effective and quick hold is required to keep the EPDM in place.
Bonding adhesive is applied to both the EPDM and the surface and allow to go touch dry.
Deck water based adhesive is more suited to wood and ply adhesion on the main area of the deck.
The reason why water based deck adhesive is used more commonly than bonding adhesive for DIY application is because the water based adhesive simplifies the application of the EPDM membrane, which can be laid straight onto it while it is still wet. This makes it easier to correct mistakes with the ability to lift and replace the membrane on 2 to 3 occasions.
