EPDM Roofing Membrane

Natraj Rubbers has specially designed a high performing EPDM Roofing Membrane for a water-tight and durable - fit and forget roofing solution.

What is EPDM?

EPDM is an elastomer that is manufactured from ethylene propylene and a small amount of die-ne monomer.

These ingredients together produce a product that exhibits a high degree of ozone, ultra-violet, weathering and abrasion resistance and outstanding low-temperature flexibility.

EPDM is also resistant to acids, alkalis & oxygenated solvents (i.e. ketones, esters and alcohols.)

EPDM is one of the most widely used and fastest growing synthetic rubbers having both specialty and general-purpose applications.

Typical properties & advantages of using EPDM membranes

  • Excellent resistance to heat, oxidation, ozone and weather aging
  • Good electrical resistivity, as well as resistance to polar solvents, such as water, acids, alkalies, phosphate esters and many ketones and alcohols
  • They have excellent low temperature flexibility, and can remain flexible up to -30 °C.
  • Heat aging resistance up to 130°C
  • High tensile and tear properties, excellent abrasion resistance, as well as good oil resistance.

A General Summary of properties is shown below:

Why NATRAJ EPDM Roofing Membrane?

  • They are available in varied colors giving house owners option to co-ordinate with the look of their house
  • Our White Membranes reflect heat, thus cutting cooling costs in summer making it economically friendly
  • It also acts as an insulator to help cut costs in winter
  • Repairs can be done simply and inexpensively
  • Rubber weighs less than most other waterproofing materials - this gives the roofer an advantage when hauling the materials to and from the roof for installation
  • Since rubber sheeting does not rely on gravity like traditional shingles it is ideal for flat or low pitched roofs it can be purchased in 25mtr long sheets thus creating very little seams and practically “shrink wrapping” your entire roof
  • Root-proof hence very suitable for terrace gardens
  • They are also ozone and UV stable making the materials themselves non perishable
  • Unlike built up roofing, EPDM membrane does not contain organic material that can decay as the result of moisture caused by condensation causing leaks.
