English term or phrase: metal window applications with integral nail fin
I have no idea what "integral nail fin" is.

XXX Self-Adhered Flashings are not compatible with plasticized polyvinyl chloride (flexible PVC). Certain metal window applications with integral nail fin may have specific limitations. Contact window manufacturer for specific application instructions required when using a bituminous-based flashing.
