Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes offer a unique combination of features & benefits.
Superior durability – Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes offer unmatched resistance to ozone, UV radiation and high or low temperatures. They have a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Over a billion of square meters of roof installations worldwide are a testimony of Firestone EPDM membrane’s proven performance.
Seamless sheets in 1 piece – Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes are available in large, seamless sheets up to 6.10 m in width. Most small residential roofs can therefore be covered with one single sheet without any field seaming.
Very low life-cycle cost – Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes require no or only little maintenance once installed. This feature, combined with the membrane’s inherent durability and competitive installed cost, result in a very low lifecycle cost.
Flame-free and easy installation – Installation of Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes is easy. It requires no flame as the membrane is always fully adhered to the substrate using a cold applied adhesive.
High flexibility and elongation – Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM membranes remain highly flexible even at low temperatures, enabling year round installation. The membrane can also elongate over 300% to accommodate building movements.
Environmentally friendly – Firestone RubberCover™ EPDM is an inert material with limited environmental impact, both during manufacture and installation, and high durability compared to other roofing membranes. In addition, Firestone’s EPDM manufacturing facilities have received ISO 14001 certification for their environmental management system.
