EPDM REPAIRS AND COATING:
EPDM ROOF COATING: The best
EPDM coating depends on your application and environment. We
have products for roofs which get light foot traffic, products for enhanced heat reflection, and such.
RoofMate HT is most popular. All repairs should be made before coatings are applied. EPDM Cleaning and using an
EPDM primer is recommended before applying all coatings to assure
good long-term adhesion.
SEAMS: This is the most important area of any roof installation, repair or replacement. Three popular methods:
- Use Eternabond Doublestick: < -- click link for instructions. It is self priming, longer lasting.
After making seam, then seal outside edges of the EPDM with M1 sealant,
- Using Primer with Butyl Seam Tape: First clean the EPDM surfaces to be seamed with a Scotch-brite pad; stir primer well; then apply
EPDM Primer to both surfaces by scrubbing into the surfaces with the
Scotch-Brite pad; let primer dry about 10 minutes; then apply Doublestick / Seam Tape to one side of EPDM following seam tape instructions; then fold over the other side of EPDM; then begin to remove release liner and simultaneously ROLL overlapped seam WELL to fuse
sealant as your go. See Video Movie of Seam Tape application process.
Finishing Seam Edges: Either add M1 sealant at exposed cut edge AND,
- Highly recommended: Create Double Overlap Seam. on the outside surface along the exposed seam, clean and apply EPDM
Primer and apply a secondary Coverstrip layer,
SEAMS REPAIRS: EPDM seam failures are a common first point of aging related wear out. Old seams can be repaired and reinforced to greatly extend the life of a EPDM roof. First clean the EPDM surfaces to be seamed; apply EPDM
Primer with a scotch brite scrub pad and gloves, scrubbing primer into both surfaces; let primer dry, about 10 minutes; then apply
Doublestick Seam Tape in between the overlapping layers following
seam tape instructions. THEN on the outside surface along the exposed seam, clean and apply EPDM Primer and apply a secondary
Coverstrip layer. EPDM Coatings are applied last, over all repairs. EPDM primer should be used under all coatings.
EPDM CLEANING: The can be accomplished several methods, depending on the type of cleaning needed. The objective is to remove all surfaces contaminate and
create a fresh surfaces. Burnishing with a plastic scrub pad is quick and effective.
EternaClean is also effective. For very large areas, scrubbing with a mixture of TSP and bleach is used by some. Regardless, the
final surface must be free of dirt and not have any powder-like residues. Follow cleaning with an
EPDM Primers. Special EPDM cleaners are available which etch away a layer EPDM. These are strong materials which can harm other
surfaces. Email us for more information.
EPDM MEMBRANE ADHESION: First clean surfaces to be bonded. Stir well, then apply adhesive to both surfaces with roller, and allow solvent to flash off until tacky. Then set
carefully roll EPDM adhesive coated membrane into adhesive, rolling out any bubbles as you go.
Detail Instructions. EPDM adhesives included water based (VOC / solvent free/ non-flammable),
solvent based (greater adhesion), and M1
Sealants (for smaller repairs. Smaller areas and repairs can also use Eternabond
EPDM TEAR OR BUBBLE REPAIRS: Email us at email@example.com with a description of your repair
problem for a more detailed recommendation.
Generally smaller tear repairs or (bubbles) can be made by cutting and peeling back the membrane as far as needed to get to solid adhesion areas (cut with a razor knife
as needed). Clean deck and the underside of membrane as above. Prime both surfaces. Apply M1 or EPDM adhesive. Lay EPDM Membrane back and roll out bubbles. In high stress areas (most RV roofs), add
mechanical fastening along each repair edge using stainless steel ring shank nails or SS staples. Clean the outer layers. Apply
Eternabond RoofSeal or EPDM
coverstrip, and overlap the coverstrip past the repair line 3 inches in each direction. Roll all seams using a seam
roller. Alternative methods:
- Clean with Eternaclean,
score surface with a kitchen scrubber and seal with DoubleStick to adhere EPDM down or make
any seams, then cover with Eternabond RoofSeal
- Use M1 sealant around round and irregular penetrations.
- Replace the EPDM roofing membrane where needed.
HOW CAN I TELL ITS EPDM? White EPDM used on RVs is white on the outside and black on the bottom. It bends and forms EASILY (and thus will wrap edges easy). A few newer motor-homes have used TPO
or PVC membrane. This will be very stiff. TPO and PVC can also be melted and seams are welded, not glued. Sometimes TPO has an additional black layer on the back which has reinforcement fabric
embedded in it. EPDM is not generally produced with a reinforcement.
MORE ABOUT EPDM ROOFING MEMBRANE:
EPDM roofing membrane (rubber roofing) is a high performance synthetic rubber (elastomeric polymer) synthesized from ethylene, propylene and
a small amount of diene monomer, compounded with carbon black, processing oils and various cross-linking and stabilizing agents.
EPDM roofing has been used for over 40 years, with more than 500,000 warranted roof installations and more than 20 billion square feet.
Annually, EPDM accounts for over 1 billion square feet of new roof coverings in the United States, and is the most frequently used
roofing material in the marketplace. White EPDM has been installed on RV's since the early 1980's. Providing flexibility, low
maintenance, ease of repair, clean appearance, noise insulation, and temperature insulation, white EPDM roofing membrane is now standard
on 3 out of 4 new RV's. Now the energy efficiency of white EPDM makes it ideal for house boat roofs, mobile home roofs, and
residential flat or low pitched house roofs.
Our EPDM Roofing System Features:
- Cyclical membrane fatigue resistance
- Proven hail resistance
- High resistance to ozone weathering and abrasion
- Flexibility in low temperatures
- Superior resistance to extreme heat and fire. Our EPDM is specially formulated to inhibit the
spread of flames. It meets or exceeds code criteria for fire retardant roofing membranes and UL Class “A”Âtesting standards.
- Thermal shock durability
- Ultraviolet radiation resistance
- Very high wind uplift resistance - up to I-120 Factory Mutual rating
- Ease and speed of application without special tools
- Cold applied, non-flammable adhesive system
ROOF TOP GARDENS: EPDM Roofing Systems - We are pleased to provide Carlisle's Roof Garden Systems which provide a
variety of waterproofing options with a full line of accessories to insure a high performance system. This includes a range of membranes
such as the 60-mil EPDM and TPO which are ideal for the Ultra Extensive Roof Gardens (shallow) with standard 15-20 year
warranties. Roof gardens 4" to 8" in depth are classified as a Medium Assembly (Extensive) requiring 75-mil EPDM or 72-mil TPO
membranes for 10-15 year warranties, and 90-mil EPDM or 80-mil TPO membranes for 20 year warranties. For the Intensive Roof Gardens
(deep), the membrane options include Carlisle's toughest membranes -- 90-mil EPDM, 80-mil TPO and the 115 through 145-mil FleeceBACK
membranes. Carlisle also offers an option to mop down the AFX FleeceBACK EPDM membranes over two plies of base felts to provide a
durable hybrid system. Rooftop Garden Specifications
