Polystick TU MAX is a self-adhered waterproofing underlayment designed for use in adhesive foam or mechanically fastened roof tile applications. Utilizing ADESO® dual-compound self-adhered technology, Polystick TU MAX features a polymer modified bitumen upper compound and a proprietary self-adhesive SBS (elastomeric) compound on the bottom. A split release film that protects the self adhesive compound allows for easy application.

TU MAX features a tough polyester reinforced surface fabric which is skid resistant and provides proven foam set adhesion. The combination of aggressive self-adhesive bottom surface and strong bond of foam to the top surface provide strong resistance to wind uplift and seals the roof from wind-driven rain. In mechanically attached systems, the asphaltic compound provide sealability around nails. This product is suitable for the high temperature environments under tile and other roof coverings.

Polystick TU MAX is a flexible membrane allowing it to lay flat with ease, increasing install speed. This product features patented SEALLap® factory applied adhesive treatment at the membrane overlap which provides a quick watertight bond.

Although Polystick TU MAX is designed as an underlayment for clay and concrete tile coverings, this membrane can also be installed under slate tiles. Can be installed as part of a multi-ply underlayment system when used over Polystick MTS PLUS.
