EPDM Mechanically Fastened Roof System Mechanically fastened roof systems provide a lightweight, cost-effective solution. Strength and Durability Excellence in EPDM EPDM, also referred to as a rubber roof, has a proven track record and is a dimensionally stable membrane. EPDM is a single-ply membrane system that expands and contracts yet retains its structural memory. The membrane also has excellent weather resistance and is an outstanding second-generation roof-over application. Strength & Durability - Lightweight and easy-to-maintain; withstands temperature changes - Resistant to standing water, mold and mildew - Dimensionally stable yet expands and contracts with building movement (300% elongation capability with 100% memory) - Carbon black additives in the sheet provide superior UV resistance Versatility - Available in 45, 60, 90 or 120 mil thickness - Available with or without reinforcing scrim Application Methods - Mechanically Fastened: This system is installed by utilizing mechanical fasteners that secure the insulation and membrane to the structural deck. - Fully Adhered: This system is applied by bonding the membrane directly to an affixed insulation board or other roofing membrane substrate. - Ballasted: This system is installed using large sheets and rock ballast to hold the membrane in place. This roof system can be the most costeffective due to the ease and speed of installation. 1 2 2. Fasteners and plates 3 2 1 4 1. EPDM Membrane 3. Insulation 1. EPDM Membrane 4. Roof deck
