Rubber roofing is the one of the more recent developments in flat roofing membrane technology. This particular waterproofing system has a life expectancy that far exceeds comparable products.
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membrane is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer offering:
Seamless sheets in 1 piece
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets up to 6.10 m in width. Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming.
Very low life-cycle cost
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance once installed. This feature, combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and competitive installed cost, result in a very low lifecycle cost.
Flame-free and easy installation
Installation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes is easy. It requires no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.
High flexibility and elongation
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes remain highly flexible even at low temperatures, enabling year round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements.
Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact, both during manufacture and installation, and high durability compared to other roofing membranes. In addition, Firestone’s EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system.
