SabreGrip R71 is a non-chlorinated, polyurethane spray adhesive, designed to be applied single sided to the roof deck only. It has been specifically designed for bonding all fleece-backed single ply membranes including TPO/FPO, EPDM and PVC, to various roof decks such as insulation boards, concrete, plywood, cementitious boards and existing asphalt/bituminous surfaces. SabreGrip R71 sprays in a unique snowflake spray pattern, designed to give a slight foaming effect to droplets on the surface so that the adhesive keys with the fleece or scrim backing in the membranes for optimum adhesion performance.


Available in:
22L Canister

How to Use

  • Substrate Preparation

    Make sure that surfaces are clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, oil, loose paint, wax or grease, etc.

  • Spraying the Adhesive

    Spray about 15 – 30 cm away at a 45-degree angle to the surface, applying a uniform,
    even coat of adhesive to obtain 60% to 80% coverage of the surface. If necessary, spray another coat of adhesive in areas that appear to need more adhesive.

  • Tack Time:

    Allow 1 – 2 minutes for the adhesive to tack off, make sure to apply membrane within 10 minutes of applying adhesive.

  • Bonding:

    Adhere surfaces and press together with adequate pressure. A roller is recommended to apply a uniform pressure to achieve maximum strength. Allow 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure.

  • Cleaning:

    If the spray tip clogs, unscrew the spray tip from the gun and clean with solvent such as lacquer thinner or acetone. Do not use a pin on the spray tip.
