Get this from a library! Field test results of experimental EPDM and PUF roofing. [Myer J Rosenfield; Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (U.S.: )]. Experimental roofs of single-ply ethylene-propylene -diene monomer (EPDM) and sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam (PUF) were installed during and at Fort Benning, GA and Fort Lewis, WA. This research documents the long term results of a field test program to evaluate the effects of aging/ weathering on the EPDM and PUF materials and the repairability of the surfaces. The long-term weathering study completed recently shows that Year roofs continue to perform well. All samples were performing like new—after up to three decades in the field. EPDM withstands the effects of various climates extremely well. Properly designed, installed, and maintained EPDM systems can successfully withstand extreme weather.

EPDM is a versatile compound, with many different formulas possible. This allows the compound to be designed for a broad range of applications. Its main properties are excellent heat, ozone and weather resistance, and superior electrical insulation. Manufactured in sheets or as a liquid, EPDM is the main roofing material used in construction. Long Term Field Test Results of Experimental EPDM and PUF Roofing roofs of single-ply ethylene-propylene -diene monomer (EPDM) and sprayed-in-place polyurethane foam (PUF. low-cost types of EPDM favored for commercial roofs offer many pitfalls for inexperienced installers. These EPDM roofing sheets shrink significantly as they age, creating stress at walls and edges that can tear the sheets or shorten their lives. Sheet sizes are limited, so field seaming is usually necessary. Ice impact testing of roofing products began in South Africa during Rigby and Steyn () were the first researchers to publish experimental procedures and test results from launching ice stones at various roofing products. General interest and subsequent requests for impact testing of roofing .

EPDM vs TPO is at par with longevity with TPO having roughly the same lifespan as EPDM with years. Mechanical Installation For Optimum Roof Security. Contractors use the mechanically attached system when installing TPO on flat roofs. They achieve this with fastening plates to secure the roofing . EPDM Rubber Roofing. We're proud to offer the finest EPDM Roofing sheet (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber) rubber roofing materials, EPDM supplies, EPDM adhesives and EPDM accessories from Weatherbond (division of Carlisle Construction Materials), Versico and other top suppliers. These EPDM Roofing products are engineered for the toughest applications including commercial buildings, .   EPDM roofing membrane is durable, affordable and easy to install. It is an ideal roofing membrane for both residential and commercial roofing. According to Righteous Rubber Roofing, EPDM roofing membrane has an extremely long lifespan and is able to stand up against years of inclement weather, thermal cycling, and extreme UV exposure. It can.   The term TPO stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin. Believe it or not, TPO is actually in a broad family of rubber roofing materials. TPO is a blend of polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber. EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. It is a synthetic rubber derived from oil and natural gas (ethylene propylene).
