How do you use ClassicBond?

The ClassicBond fully-adhered system will adhere to wood, wood fibreboard and lightweight concrete. This product may NOT be applied to polystyrene insulation. The ClassicBond Water Based Acrylic Adhesive is intended for bonding to timber surfaces only. Other surfaces must be bonded with ClassicBond Bonding Adhesive. Roofs over 100m² must also be installed with Bonding Adhesive.

Be sure the roof surface is clean, free of dust, dirt, rust, oil, grease, and loose material. The roof surface must be dry. ClassicBond will not adhere to wet or damp surfaces. Trapped moisture may vapourize and negatively affect the performance of this product.

Good roofing practice dictates that ponding water be prevented. The roof surface should have a positive slope of at least 1 in 80 to prevent ponding water conditions. For full instructions, please see the ClassicBond Installation Guide.
