The Conservation Technology EPDM roofing system offers any homeowner, builder, or roofer the means to reliably and permanently waterproof low-slope roofs, rooftop decks, and green roofs. In most cases we custom fabricate a single sheet the size of each roof, eliminating the risks associated with field seaming. The hail research at IBHS was of special interest to ERA, given ERA’s research that has consistently shown that EPDM membrane offers exceptionally strong resistance against hail damage. Based on field and test data sponsored by ERA, EPDM roof membranes outperform other roof systems in . "Maintenance of Sprayed Polyurethane Foam(PUF) Roofing Systems" R.L.

This is the fourth study conducted on EPDM that supports the long-term performance of the EPDM membrane. “The first field studies of EPDM were done in the late s, and we are finding a pattern,” says Thomas W. Hutchinson AIA, FRCI, RRC and Principal, Hutchinson Design Group, Ltd., Barrington, Ill. The roofing/fascia/soffit system shall be installed plumb, straight, and true to adjacent work. Hori- zontal panel lap joints are not acceptable. EPDM closures and metal top closures shall be caulked around their entire perimeter. Roof clips shall allow for thermal movement and shall be installed at each panel joint. Longitudinal spacing of roof.

and the sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam (PUF) with an elastomeric coating. EPDM and PUF roofs were constructed in and the PVC roofs were completed during summer ' Objective The objective of this report is to document the results to date of a year field test program to evaluate PVC roofing systems. UL Listing: EPDM Roofing Systems SINGLE PLY MEMBRANE ROOFING SYSTEMS In the fully adhered and mechanically fastened systems described below, the " EPDM" membrane may Field membrane splices, 6 in. wide, are adhered wth " EPDM Lap Cement−Black" at 85 to 95 lin ft/gal. Splice edges are covered with " EPDM Lap Caulk−Black" at 11 oz/ Experimental roofs of single-ply ethylene-propylene -diene monomer (EPDM) and sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam (PUF) were installed during and at Fort Benning, GA and Fort Lewis, WA. This research documents the long term results of a field test program to evaluate the effects of aging/ weathering on the EPDM and PUF materials and. Ice impact testing of roofing products began in South Africa during Rigby and Steyn () were the first researchers to publish experimental procedures and test results from launching ice stones at various roofing products. General interest and subsequent requests for impact testing of roofing .
