Nu-Vue Tropical Roofing Panel is a factory-formed corrugated commercial-industrial metal roof and wall panel that provides a traditional metal panel appearance. The Tropical Roofing Panel is mechanically fastened with exposed fasteners and can be installed in a non-sequential pattern. The panel is available in a wide variety of materials and finishes, including Kynar 500®/Hylar 5000 pre-finished G-90 galvanized steel and aluminum, copper, anodized and mill finish aluminum, and acrylume.
Method of Application:
- Nu-Vue Tropical Panels may be installed in a nonsequential pattern over a solid substrate or open framing.
- Application of a Nu-Vue approved underlayment prior to panel installation over a solid substrate is recommended.
- Nu-Vue metal panels should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated place where no moisture can contact them. Moisture (from rain, snow, condensation, etc.) trapped between layers of material may cause water stains or white rust, which can affect the service life of the material and detract from its appearance.
- If outdoor storage cannot be avoided, protect the panels with a ventilated canvas or waterproof paper cover. Do not use plastic, which can cause condensation. Keep the material off the ground in an inclined position with an insulator such as wood. Protective film may degrade or become brittle with long-term exposure to direct sunlight.
- Oil canning is not a cause for rejection.
- Sealant for end laps and lap joints shall be non-drying, non-toxic, and non-shrinking with a serviceable temperature of 0 to 212 degrees F.
- Quality, long-life butyl sealants work best as a gasket sandwiched between two pieces of metal. Non-acetic cured silicone color matching sealants are recommended when voids must be filled. Sealants are not a substitute for proper assembly and workmanship.
- Exercise caution when lifting, moving, transporting, storing, or handling Nu-Vue metal to avoid possible physical damage.
- Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for safety information.
- Zinc must be worked at 50 degrees F (10 degrees C) and rising.
