Q:Can I use this to adhere/seal metal roof clips to composition shingles? I’ll probably have to use nails or screws to secure clips and want to seal penetration. Don’t see any mention of using with comp roofing.

Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. Tremco Vulkem 116 sealant is an excellent general-purpose sealant designed for use on poured and precast concrete, masonry work, window and door perimeters, and similar types of construction joints. Tremco Vulkem 116 Polyurethane Sealant is not designed, tested, marketed, labeled, or recommended for use as a primary construction adhesive (“glue”). While this material will bond well to composition shingles (when used as a sealant), the use of mechanical fasteners is likely required by code. Should you have any additional question or require further assistance, please contact Tremco at 800-321-7906.
