1 Air and Vapour Control

The RCABC does not list air or vapour barriers in the Accepted Materials section of this Manual, as their performance is not guaranteed by the RoofStar Guarantee Program. For more about air and vapour barriers and specific requirements for the RoofStar Guarantee Program, select any of the Low Slope Membrane Roof Systems. This cross-reference is listed for information only.

7 Fasteners & Accessories

An Accessory is a material that joins Primary or Secondary Materials together, or is connected to/with a Primary or Secondary material, but does not by its nature (apart from its installation) directly affect the water or wind resistance of the roofing or waterproofing assembly. This can include (without limitation)
  • Caulking or sealants
  • Mastics


Accessories currently are not ‘accepted’ in the RoofStar Guarantee Program, but some are listed here. However, manufacturers or suppliers wishing to have their accessories listed in the Accepted Materials section of the RoofStar Roofing Practices Manual must provide the following documentation as a condition for listing:

  • Current Technical Data Sheet (TDS) – must show certifications and tested limits consistent with the requirements set out for Primary Roofing Materials
  • Current Application Specifications
  • Material Testing, where applicable (indicated on the current, valid Technical Data Sheet)


Accessories are not currently part of the Accepted Material program, but are listed here for reference to specifiers, designers and installers.

These membranes are not Accepted for use in the primary waterproofing system, but may be use as for an ancillary function - for example, as protective membranes (a 'sacrificial' cap membrane).

Coatings are not a waterproofing product, but rather enhance solar reflectivity or other properties of a membrane. The inclusion of these materials, although acceptable under the RoofStar Guarantee Program, is not part of the Guarantee.
