Top Reasons to Choose EPDM:
Energy Efficient: In northern climates, the solar thermal benefits of black EPDM helps to reduce heating costs, which are typically 3-5 times greater than air-conditioning costs. Reflective white EPDM helps to reduce cooling costs in southern climates. The cross-linked nature of EPDM can handle the heat of southern climates.
Rooftop Safety: EPDM’s dark-colored surface helps to melt frost, dew, and ice that can create slippery conditions on white membranes. A black EPDM membrane helps to reduce a roof’s snow load and dries much more quickly than a reflective roof.
Condensation: The solar thermal benefits of black EPDM also help to reduce potential condensation issues. Undetected condensation in a roofing assembly can negatively affect the performance of paper insulation facers, weakening the bond between insulation and adhesive, and can have a detrimental effect on the insulation’s R-value, resulting in reduced thermal efficiency.
Quality Seams: Carlisle’s labor-saving Factory-Applied Tape (FAT™) and pressure- sensitive fl ashings improve the quality and consistency of seams. Electrical seaming equipment consumes natural resources and is dependent on the applicator using correct speed, temperature, and pressure to avoid false or cold welds. Fewer Seams:
