EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
You can use Liquid EPDM Rubber with a number of materials in addition to roofing including:
- Glass-run channels
- Hoses (garden, radiator, appliance, etc.)
- Electrical insulation
- Speaker cones
Liquid EPDM Rubber is 100% waterproof, and is ideal for use with:
- High-voltage polymeric cable joints
- Rubber mechanical products
- Roofing membranes
- Pond liners
- RV roofs
- Modified asphalt
- Electrical cable jointing
The benefits of Liquid EPDM Rubber are vast. It is weather, ozone and heat resistant. It can also withstand the stress of steam and polar substances. You can customize EPDM to any color of your choosing. Liquid Rubber can increase the life of your roof and other, protective materials dramatically. Do not use it in place of roofing membranes, but rather as added support.

A TPO product can be reinforced, but must be primed with Proflex Primer first. EPDM is created by combining ethylene and proplyene along with a diene monomer attachment. It is a fantastic moisture barrier, withstands oxidation and UV exposure, and does not corrode in extreme temperatures. You can use EPDM for new construction or to reinforce existing surfaces. EPDM boasts a long life, low cost and can be used on almost any roofing surface.
Depend on the facts when choosing a repair material. Consider how many items you use every day that might be worn out, from tires to gaskets on our freezer doors. Your freezer, car, and garden hose are all exposed to extreme temperatures. EPDM Roofing Membranes have provided the best quality and reinforcement for over 30 years. It is extremely easy to work with and can save you money up front and in the future. Enjoy the flexibility, strength, and lack of odor or fumes when working with this user-friendly product.
If you are familiar with rubber polymers, this is your new (and vastly improved) option. You get all of the same benefits, but in a liquid form. Your repairs will be completely repaired and reinforced. There is no other product on the market that comes close to this level of quality and ease of use. EPDM Rubber is available in white or black. Choose carefully, especially if you live in a sunny region black roofs only reflect eight percent of the sun. Remember that curing times vary and can take weeks in certain temperatures. However, Liquid Rubber is immediately waterproof, even in uncured states. It won t wash off, allow water to seep through, or change form due to rain.
Liquid EPDM Rubber Takes on Neoprene Rubber
Liquid EPDM Rubber was immediately touted and respected as a cooler, easier, cleaner product than hot tar or asphalt. Suddenly, building a roof was easier and required much less investment. It was low maintenance, minimal annual maintenance (if any), and a breeze to get all the tools. However, it took awhile before liquid EPDM became available.
Before liquid EPDM became available, Liquid Neoprene was the tool of choice. It also protected against water whether fresh or salt. It is lightweight, and a simple solvent solution. However, it required numerous coats in order to work. A top coat using additional polymers were necessary for UV protection.
Liquid Rubber was a welcome change. This formula created high solids and is able to polymerize or cure at 55° F or higher. Only one application is necessary due to the high solids. A thin coat is the result, but it is equal in strength to Liquid Neoprene. However, the performance and protection far exceeds the competition.
EPDM is clearly the best when it comes to roof leak repair for concrete roofs, flat roofs, metal roofs, RVs and many other materials and designs. This single-ply EPDM rubber surpasses other options on the market in many ways. It is flexible at extremely high temperatures. It is easy to apply. It can also withstand UV radiation and exposure to the elements. No top coat is necessary.
Warranty. EPDM Roofing will last for years, but it still comes with a 10-year warranty for added assurance. No other roof repair product offers this kind of guarantee.
Temperatures. It is best to apply EPDM at temperatures between 40° F - 80° F. There is some play room even within this broad range. It can get especially tacky in very hot temperatures, so tread carefully.
EPDM is instantly waterproof and can resist even boiling water. You can also store EPDM at a higher temperature than Liquid Neoprene. It is non-polar, which means it can withstand saltwater and cathodic disbondment as well as ketone solvents, alcohol, most acids, and alkalies.. However, it is not very resistant to fats, waxes, oils and aliphatic solvents.
How to apply Liquid roof products and Rubber Roof Coatings.
In the past, you only had two options when a roof membrane falls apart. You could do nothing or replace the entire roof. EPDM Coatings provide an alternative. A simple coating can extend the life of a roof membrane, lower energy bills, and avoid costly replacements for many years. EPDM is 100% sustainable, and you can recoat it for years as necessary.
