EPDM Membrane...

Polyester Roof System

History of EPDM

RUBBERBOND FleeceBack is manufactured by Carlisle-Syntec USA who pioneered EPDM roofing membranes some 40 years ago. This material has established a record of superior product durability and long-term weather resistance.

The greatest test of any construction material is how it performs under field conditions. The first membranes laid in the 1960's are still protecting flat roofs some 40 years later with over One billion square metres installed worldwide on Commercial and Industrial buildings including Offices, Schools, Hotels.

Durabiiity assessments of roofing membranes found EPDM as the only membrane with no reduction in flexural fatigue resistance for all tests/locations, It would take over 50 years for EPDM to drop below 200 elongation, the MRCA ME-20 performance requirements for aged sheeting.

One of the most unique attributes is its ability to handle future roof alterations, unparalleled in the roofing industry, Unlike other roofing systems that degrade or become brittle over time, our membrane maintains its integrity and flexibility allowing future modifications to be made with ease.

What is EPDM

Polyester Roof System

Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer synthetic sheet rubber membrane is a remarkable material that:

  • Repels all moisture, snow and rain.
  • Is flexible and easily bends with no stress, to follow the contours of the roof, upstands to walls, check curb edges, skylights, pipes, terminations into gutters and the like.
  • Can stretch with up to 300% elongation, which easily accommodates building movement.
  • Is not affected by extremes of temperature.
  • Will not tear, split or crack with age.
  • Is manufactured in large sheet sizes from 3.05 to metres wide and up to 30.5 metres long.
