What is EPDM?

Ethylene Propylene Diene terpolyMer-  EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide being an appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry for over 40 years.  

With superior durability and flexibility, EPDM is a smart roofing solution!


EPDM two primary ingredients, ethylene and propylene, are derived from oil and natural gas

The EPDM production facility is one of the world’s most technologically advanced, allowing us to extrude our sheets instead of using the traditional calendering process.

The EPDM used by us is manufactured thicker with a more uniform surface finish. This advancement in manufacturing cleaner sheets requires less preparation to ensure a stronger bond during installation.

EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.
