stands for Ethylene- Propylene-dyne-monomer, which is a synthetic
rubber membrane, made specifically for flat roofing.
The characteristics of natural rubber (very good elasticity, expansion,
good cold flexibility, tensile strength, poor heat resistance) cannot
be adapted or manipulated, however with a synthetic product, scientists
can select and adapt and modify the base products to determine the
molecule structure, and this enables them to design the construction
of the polymers. The end result means that the synthetic rubber can
be made to measure, and with the characteristics precisely adapted
to the specific use and its particular requirements.
improved characteristics of EPDM synthetic rubber products include
excellent stability against influences of weather, sunlight,
ozone, acids and caustic solutions. EPDM roofing also has
long lasting flexibility and elasticity to eliminate cracking and
possess good tensile strength and a very broad temperature range.
EPDM roofing has an outstanding resistance to ageing.
roofing has been successfully used across the globe, both residentially
and commercially. It is fast becoming the most popular choice for
flat roof solutions in the UK.
