Details

Used For: Used as a cover strip where joining two pieces of membrane where there is no overlap and a 3" splice tape can not be used.

Installation Notes:The EPDM surfaces to receive the tape must be dry, clean and free from dust and dirt. Wherever flashing strips are to be adhered to any other EPDM rubber the surface must be primed with ClassicBond Rubber Primer and allowed to dry (Touch dry)

Bonding to other surfaces: The tapes and splice tape can be used to join the EPDM rubber membrane on to both TPO and PVC roofing systems. The tapes are often used to repair damaged TPO and PVC as a cost effective alternative to replacing the whole flat roof. When joining the rubber membrane to uneven or granular built up roof surfaces, such felt or Asphalt, we recommend the use of a Termination bar and water cut off mastic (water block)

Customer Questions
What is The Life Expectancy of EPDM rubber roofs.

EPDM Rubber roofs have a 50 year life expectancy.

EPDM has been in commercial use since the 1960s. And many of those roofs are still around today. 

Can EPDM withstand hard impacts from outside conditions? Such as branches falling on it or a bird pecking on it?

Along with a life expectancy of 50 years and beyond, EPDM rubber can stand up to quite some force from outside elements, in our video below we explore what different objects falling on the rubber will do to it and how much damage it takes to actually penetrate the membrane! Prepare to be surprised!

Does it have to be dry for EPDM roofing to be laid?

Yes, EPDM Membranes require the substrate to be dry prior to installation. This is so the the adhesive & primers can effectively bond the rubber to roof deck. EPDM products will not adhere to wet or damp surfaces. Trapped moisture may vaporize and negatively affect the performance of the membranes.

Is Classicbond EPDM BBA Certified?

Yes. ClassicBond EPDM holds the British Board of Agrément certificate, No. 11/4853, issued to Flex-R Ltd. The BBA carries out assessment, testing, approval and certification of products and systems for the construction industry against national requirements, internationally recognized standards or other relevant technical specifications, reviewed and reissued every 3 years.

Fire Ratings

The ClassicBond system is also fire rated, the 1.2mm EPDM has a fire rating of EXT.F.AB and the 1.5mm EPDM membrane is fire rated to EXT.F.AA. Fire rating is carried out on a variety of deck surfaces and it is important to seak the certificate that relates most accurately to your roof structure.

What Temperatures can a Rubber Roof be installed in.

We recommentd a minimum tempereture of 5 degrees C for EPDM installation. This is due the the WBA adhesive being water based and lower temperetures may cause the adhesive to freeze over and fail.
