The Firestone RubberGard EPDM membrane is a 100% cured roofing membrane made of a synthetic rubber Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer. The sheet is made of two plies of
Roofing structure needs to be stable enough to support the temporary loading. Substrates need to be clean, smooth, dry and free of sharp edges, loose or foreign materials, oil, grease and
other materials that may damage the membrane. All surface voids greater than 5 mm wide shall be properly filled with an acceptable fill material.
Allow the membrane to relax for approximately 30 minutes before splicing or final securement. Install the RubberGard EPDM membrane in accordance with the installation instructions and details.
The dimensions of the membrane are calculated to cover the substrate, including seam overlaps (100 mm for standard seams – 200 mm for seams with batten in the seam) and upstands.
Provide an additional length (150 mm) at upstands for easy manipulation.
Physical Excellent resistance to U.V. and ozone. Temperature stable from -45ºC to 130ºC. Retains its elasticity at low temperature and resistant to temperature shocks up to 250ºC.
Excellent resistance to alkali rains, less resistant to oil products. Contact with mineral and vegetable oils, petroleum based products, hot bitumen and grease must be avoided.
