What the Polyester Fabric in Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing System (FARR) Does
Polyester fabric is an essential component in Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing Systems (FARR). The fabric is a type of synthetic fiber that is designed to be strong, durable, and resistant to weathering. When used in FARR, the polyester fabric provides a reinforcing layer that helps to strengthen the roof and prevent it from tearing or developing leaks.
Our FARR system is highly effective in commercial roofing applications. The system consists of several layers, including layers of asphalt emulsion, reinforcing layers of polyester fabric, and acrylic. The polyester fabric is layered between the base and top coats, creating a strong and resilient roofing membrane.
When the FARR system is installed, the first layer of polyester fabric is first applied on top of an asphalt emulsion flood and base coat and secured in place. Multiple layers of asphalt, polyester fabric and acrylic are then applied. This creates a strong bond and a seamless and waterproof roofing membrane. The number of each layer depends on the type of commercial roof on your building.
The use of polyester fabric in FARR systems provides several benefits. Firstly, the fabric provides additional strength and durability to the roofing system, making it more resistant to tearing and punctures. Additionally, the fabric helps to distribute stress evenly across the roof surface, minimizing the risk of damage from heavy loads or foot traffic.
Another advantage of using polyester fabric in FARR systems is that it can be customized to suit specific roofing applications. The fabric can be cut and shaped to fit around your roof’s HVAC systems, drainage holes, and other equipment, ensuring that the entire roof surface is covered and protected.
In conclusion, the use of polyester fabric in Fluid Applied Reinforced Roofing Systems is critical to the system’s effectiveness. Using the polyester fabric allows us to provide your commercial roof with a waterproof and weather-resistant roofing membrane, ensuring that each project is completed to the highest standards. The FARR system can be applied on many different types of commercial roofs. Contact us here to talk to one of our roofing professionals about your building’s roofing needs.
