EPDM & Sustainability


The following is reprinted with permission from Carlisle-Syntec.

Single-ply EPDM roofing membrane has an impressive history of performance in the commercial roofing industry, where it has been utilized since the 1960s.Today, the construction industry’s emphasis on long-term performance and sustainability is causing EPDM’s popularity to increase, thanks to its excellent durability and long service life. Numerous EPDM roofs installed in the 1980s are still performing today, positioning EPDM as one of the strongest and most durable single-ply membranes on the market.

There have been many studies conducted regarding the performance and physical properties of EPDM membranes, but nothing proves quality and longevity like time-tested performance in the real world. Two buildings located in the state of Maine provide an unparalleled and undeniable exhibit of the strength and long-term durability of EPDM membranes. Originally installed more than 30 years ago, the Livermore Falls Building in Livermore Falls, Maine and the Cives Steel Paint Shop in Augusta, Maine have both stood the test of time and their EPDM roofs are still performing today.
