EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) synthetic rubber roof membranes have been used on roofs in the United States since 1960 and are one of the most common types of low-slope roofing materials. They are relatively inexpensive, simple to install, and fairly clean with which to work compared to conventional built-up roofs. There are fewer odors and fumes that accompany built-up roofs. This appeals to many property owners and managers. The properties of EPDM – resilience, tensile strength, elongation, as well as resistance to ozone, ultraviolet light and ponding water make this membrane an excellent roofing material.
