The innovation of seam tapes in the 1980s to replace liquid adhesives has resulted in reduced reliability on contractor workmanship, greater productivity for the contractor and enhanced performance for the roof system and building user. Self-adhering components that have factory-applied adhesive tape) have increased roof system quality, especially in more problematic areas such as flashing installations.
Following over 15 years off-market testing verify performance, 90 mil EPDM membranes have recently been introduced into the market. This highly puncture resistant and tough membrane offers the thickest layer of monolithic waterproof protection in the roofing industry.
The 90 mil EPDM roofs are redefining the roofing industry, the expectations of architects, consultants & building owners.
"Thirty-year warranties based on historical performance are now available. "
White EPDM combines the high-performance standards of traditional EPDM with a highly reflective, environmentally friendly surface designed to cut energy costs. In addition to the oils and the polymers used to make an EPDM membrane, another ingredient is added to the mix to enhance UV resistance. With white membrane titanium dioxide is typically used to reflect UV rays and prevent it from attacking the polymer. When used appropriately, usually in warm climates, white EPDM can reduce air-conditioning costs without sacrificing durability of the roofing system. Because of its reflectivity, white EPDM is installed using mechanically attached or fully adhered systems.

EPDM membrane formulations have remained relatively constant for the past 40 years, with roof systems installed in the 1970 's still performing well .
Even so, EPDM manufacturers remain committed to continuous product innovations. In response to technological advancements, membrane research and contractor requests for more ergonomic products, EPDM accessory products continue to evolve in order to meet the demands of the industry.
