PLATINUM HTSA is a high temperature, self-adhering, peel and stick roofing underlayment. It is designed for sloped roof applications to help protect against water infiltration from ice dams and wind driven rain. It combines the GRIPSPOT™ patented slip resistant walking surface with a high strength modified rubberized asphalt peel and stick backing.  HTSA offers premium protection against wind driven rain, snow, ice dams, and water infiltration.

  • GRIPSPOT™ slip resistant walking surface – safer, reduces fatigue

Platinum HTSA is a high temperature, self-adhering, peel and stick roo­fing underlayment designed for use as secondary ice and water protection on steep slope roo­fing 2:12 or greater. PLATINUM HT-SA underlayment is designed for use under most primary roofing materials including; commercial or residential metal, cement or clay tiles, slate, and primed cedar, asphalt, or synthetic shingles.

Storage: For best results store HTSA upright in its original packaging in a well ventilated area at room temperature between 40°F (4.4°C) and 90°F (32°C). If product has been stored at a high temperature above 90°F (32°C) it may become difficult to remove the release liner backing. To correct this, move product to a cooler location. Once cooled, the release liner can be easily removed.

Deck Preparation: Before installing HTSA ensure all protrusions have been removed from the deck area. The deck should also not have any voids, damaged or unsupported areas. For best results HTSA should be installed over a clean, smooth, and dry deck. For re-roofi­ng projects, replace any water damaged sheathing and sweep roof deck thoroughly removing dust, dirt and loose nails. Do not install over old roof covering.

Application: HTSA should be installed on a clean, dry deck when the air, membrane, and substrate temperature is over 40°F (4.4°C). Priming is not required when attaching to wood or OSB deck. Concrete or masonry decks should be primed with a solvent or water based primer that meets ASTM D41 for asphalt based self-adhesive membranes. Always work from the low point to the high point of the roof. Apply the membrane in valleys before the membrane is applied to the eaves. HTSA is to be laid out horizontally (parallel) to the eave with the printed side up. Horizontal overlaps to be 3” using the flat designated selvage edge. For best adhesion performance it is recommended to not overlap up onto the Gripspot walking surface. For end laps it is recommended to overlap a minimum of 6” and nail 1” in from the edge along the vertical end lap with 6” spacing between nails. To increase adhesion a water based primer can be used along lap. End laps should be offset a minimum of 6 feet on adjacent courses. Where it is necessary to overlap HTSA onto the Gripspot walking surface such as over the ridge it is recommended to cap nail along the outer edge 1” in at 6” intervals. For easier installation, it is recommended to cut the membrane into manageable lengths. Then peel back one side of the split release liner approximately 4”(10cm) and apply in position on the roof deck. Continue peeling back one side of the liner and press in place by hand or with a roller to increase adhesion to the deck. Once one side has been pressed to the deck peel back the remaining half of the liner and press down to adhere to the roof deck again using a small roller to increase adhesion. For improved adhesion hand rolling over the selvage edge and directly above the selvage edge using a minimum 4 inch-wide, 10 lb. roller is recommended. If a roller is not available or not considered safe, walk on all laps, and as much of the fi­eld area as possible. For cold weather applications 40°F (4.4°C) or below, a primer should be used and the upper most selvage edge blind nailed using 3/8” head roo­fing nails 1” or longer. Space nails along edge at 12” intervals using the marked locations. For best results, warm HTSA to room temperature prior to application. For steep slope applications (5:12 or greater), high wind areas, or when installing at temperatures greater than 100°F (38°C), it is recommended to blind nail the selvage edge area as per above under cold weather application. HTSA should be applied over the metal drip edge at the eaves unless otherwise speci­fied by local codes. Do not fold HTSA over the roof edge unless the edge is subsequently covered over by a drip edge or other flashing material. In areas where ice damming can occur, install HTSA from the eaves up the roof to a point not less than 24 inches inside the exterior wall, measured horizontally. Consult your local building code for specifi­c requirements. For valley applications, peel the release liner; center the sheet over the valley and hand press in place from the center of the valley outward. Note: It is very important HTSA stay in contact with the roof deck into and out of the valley area. HTSA should never be suspended or bridge a valley. It is recommended to follow up with a weighted roller or by walking on the surface. Give special attention to ALL perimeter edge areas. Repair holes, ­fish mouths, tears, and any other penetration damage to the membrane with a round patch of membrane extending passed the damaged area by 6 inches in all directions. Do not install fasteners through membrane over any unsupported areas of the structural deck, such as over joints between adjacent structural panels.

Precautions: HTSA is a moisture and vapor barrier and therefore must be installed above a properly ventilated space(s). Follow ALL building codes applicable to your geographical region and structure type. HTSA is not designed for indefi­nite outdoor exposure. Final roo­fing should be installed within 180 days of underlayment.

CAUTION: Read Good Safety Practises Below:
Good safety practises should be followed on steep slope roofs, such as use of tie-offs, toe boards, ladders, and/or safety ropes and personal body
harnesses. Slip resistance may vary with surface conditions from debris, weather, footwear and roof pitch. Always follow Safety Instructions, Building
Codes, and Safe Work Practices issued by local Government bodies (e.g. OSHA/WCB/CNESST). Failure to use proper safety gear may result in serious
