Benefits and Features of EPDM

About EPDM

First introduced in the 1960’s, EPDM rubber (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is one of the fastest growing roof coverings in the world. In its typical form for roofing applications, EPDM sheeting is a cured, or vulcanized material and is thus classified as a thermoset. Simply defined, this means that the polymer's molecular structure is set as a result of heating during the manufacturing process. The chains of the polymer are joined together, or cross linked. By the time the finished membrane is packaged for shipping, it is fully cured. Uncured EPDM membranes are sometimes used for flashings; but this material will eventually cure as it naturally ages under the exposure to UV light and heat.

Why choose EPDM?

    The simple installation of our one piece EPDM system makes it very popular to many and can be walked upon (light foot traffic) for maintenance needs.

  2. Flexible
