Elevate Batten Cover Strip is a semi-cured EPDM and Quickseam Tape, designed to cover and seal batten strips and also to join two pieces of EPDM where applicable.

• The release paper has been perforated, resulting in centering marks on the tape which acts as a guide in the application of a EPDM Join.

• Shelf life of one year can be expected if stored at temperatures between 15 - 27 degrees, shelf life will be shortened if exposed to elevated temperatures.  

• If temperature is below 15 degrees during application, the careful use of a heat gun can assist application. Don't overheat or touch directly.

The Elevate 6 inch Cover Tape is designed to cover and seal over metal edge trims, lead flashing's, tiles or to seal two abutting pieces of Elevate EPDM.  

More information can be found in the installation guides, but to summarise:

• If a batten bar is required to first anchor and seal the EPDM, follow the necessary steps.

• Next, ensure the area is clean, dry & free of debris, then, using the Quickscrub Holder & Fleece, apply an even amount of Quickprime plus to the necessary area, leaving no pooling.

• Once tacky or touch-dry, use the centre marks on the tape as a guide to apply the Batten Cover Strip over the Join. Work into place with your Silicone Rubber Roller & Penny Roller.

• If needed, apply Elevate Lap Sealant the flashing edges.

  • Can I stick Elevate Flashing down with bonding adhesive?
    No. You must use Elevate Quickprime Plus to prime the EPDM & surface your seaming product will adhere to. The waterbased deck adhesive or bonding adhesive is not suitable for this.
  • Do I need to seal the edges of the flashing?
    Providing you follow installation instructions, & conduct the work under appropriate weather conditions, the flashing will seam to the EPDM and not require additional sealing. However, during this curing process, Lap Sealant can seal the edges until the seam fully bonds. Our installation team applies this as an extra layer of protection to ensure long-term performance.
  • What happens if I get air pockets in the flashing?
    Some air pockets can be gently smoothed out with your Silicone Rubber Roller & Penny Roller. Start from the centre, and work towards the edges. Never start at the edge and work in - as this will trap the pocket. It you have air pockets sufficient to affect the seal - you may need to pierce/cut this & place a new patch over the top.
  • Can Elevate Cover or flashing Tape stretch and mould?
    No, the 6'' cover tape & 5'' flashing tape is for 2D application only, & being semi-cured, is not designed to mould around corners or stetch and allow 3D application. 9 inch Form Flash or 18 inch Quickseam Flashing is used for 3D detailing.
  • Will Elevate Cover or Flashing Tape seal my rubber to another roof?
    Yes, the Elevate 6'' Cover Tape & 5'' Flashing Tape is semi-cured & specifically designed to seal over metal edge trims, lead flashing's, tiles, other roof surfaces, or to seal two abutting pieces of EPDM. You may need to use a Batten Bar to anchor the EPDM first before applying the cover tape. Consult the installation guides as required. Do note that the tape is rigid and not designed for stretching or moulding. 9 inch Form Flash or 18 Inch Quickseam Flashing must be used for this.

Notes on the delivery of Elevate EPDM:

If you order EPDM with your items, the rubber will be delivered rolled up for ease of transport. As a result there may be some fold creases and wrinkles - this is normal. To remedy this, the EPDM should be laid to rest, or settle, for a minimum of 1 hour. In colder temperatures, the light use of a heat gun (not a naked flame) can be used to settle the rubber. Don't overheat or touch directly.

Starting your project:

We advise not booking in or arranging an installation team to begin works before the goods have been delivered & inspected. Delays or order mistakes are rare, but can happen. We can't be liable for any costs as a result from delayed or incorrect delivery or items.
