Back to Reinforced Roofing

Description:
Reinforced Roofing is an internally reinforced cured EPDM Membrane single-ply roofing membrane that features a 9x9, 1,000 denier polyester weft inserted reinforcing scrim. 45 Mil

Preparation of Substrates:
• Substrates must be clean, dry, smooth and free from sharp edges, fins, loose or foreign materials, oil, grease and other materials that may damage the membrane.
• All roughened surfaces that could damage the membrane shall be repaired as specified to offer a smooth substrate.
All surface voids greater than 1/4" (6.3 mm) wide shall be properly filled with an acceptable fill material.

Method of Application:
Reinforced EPDM Membrane must be installed in accordance with current specifications, details and workmanship requirements. It can be used in ballasted, full adhered and mechanically attached systems.

Storage:
• Store away from sources of punctures and physical damage
• Assure that structural decking will support the loads incurred by material when sotred on rooftop. The deck load limitations should be specified by the project designer.
• Store away from ignition sources as membrane will burn when exposed to open flame.

Precautions:
• Take care when moving, transporting, handling, etc. to avoid sources of puncture and physical damage.
• Isolate waste products, such as petroleum products, greases, oils (mineral and vegetable) and animal fats from the Membrane
• Refer to MSDS for safety information.
