How Many Ways Does the Polyglass Polystick XFR Protect?

Polyglass Polystick

Polyglass tells us that, while other fire-related underlayment products will struggle to find a balance between fire protection and reliable waterproofing, the Polystick XFR combines their ADESO and Burn-Shield technologies with high-quality materials to excel in both areas.

This underlayment helps combustible decking achieve a UL Class A rating as well as long-term weathering performance. It can withstand temperatures up to 265°.

The Polyglass Polystick XFR’s ADESO Dual-Compound Self-Adhered technology features an SBS (elastomeric) modified bitumen upper compound and a self-adhesive compound on the bottom. Fiberglass reinforces the underlayment to provide strength and stability. Polystick XFR applies quickly to save on labor costs.

You can also use the Polystick XFR as a secondary layer above Polystick MTS Plus as part of a multi-ply underlayment system. Able to withstand exposure for up to 180 days, you can use it with works-in-progress.

The Polyglass Polystick XFR comes with a standard 10-year limited material warranty or a 10-year Polystick labor and material warranty when installed by a Polyglass registered contractor. Polyglass also offers a 30-year 2-Ply Polystick labor and material warranty. This can apply when two plies of the Polystick XFR treatment are used and installed by a certified contractor.
