The main component contained within the Firestone Rubbergard Roof System is EPDM. This is a single-ply synthetic rubber membrane that consists of processing aids, oils, diene monomer, curing agents, ethylene propylene and mixed with carbon black. It is calendared into big sheets and then it is vulcanized. The EPDM membrane is either mechanically fixed in place using Firestone Bonding Adhesive or is fully adhered.
This product has been extensively tested and found to be of superior strength, longer lasting and so much easier to repair on the rare occasion this is necessary than felt. It is also known to have a life span of a minimum of 50 years.
