The greatest test of any construction material is how it performs under actual field conditions. Forty years of empirical experience in field applications has shown EPDM to have the roofing industry’s longest average serviceable life. Characteristics that contribute to this superior overall system performance include:
EPDM’s high resistance to wind damage has also proven to be an increasingly desirable attribute. EPDM membrane roofing systems can be designed to meet a variety of wind uplift criteria from Factory Mutual, including 1-60, 1-90, and 1-120 ratings and greater, and the stringent code of Dade County, Florida.
