Turn the weakest part of the roof into the strongest. Chem Link's E-Curbs consist of tough, molded forms that bond to the roof around virtually any penetration. E-Curbs work by creating a cavity, which is later filled with a non-shrinking rubber sealant. The entire process creates a tight, unified bond that integrates with the penetration. E-Curbs offer a simple installation process that can save crews time and labor. One primary E-Curb benefit is that it provides an economically friendly option that will withstand heat, cold, moisture, ponding water and ultraviolet rays and can last the roof's lifespan.
