Benefits of RubberBond FleeceBack EPDM

The majority of property owners with flat roof on their houses, roof extensions, garage roofs, commercial flat roofs and new build properties, all see a wide range of products for roofs. These range from felt flat roofs, Glassfibre GRP flat roofs, EPDM membranes and PVC/TPO flat roofs.

There are two main EPDM rubber roofing manufacturers Carlisle-Syntec and Firestone. Flex-R are the exclusive distributers for Carlisle-Syntec EPDM waterproofing in the UK and Ireland.


  • No torches or asphalt are required, making installation safer
  • Less weight on your roof than mod-bit 2-ply systems
  • Larger rolls mean fewer seams, allowing for quicker installation
  • Faster installation means less disruption for building occupants
  • Year round application


  • EPDM is made from engineered polymers rather than leftover by-products
  • Because EPDM is a single ply membrane, there is no concern with interply blisters
  • The embodied energy (energy used to manufacture or mine the building components, and the energy used during building) is substantially less with EPDM roofing


  • After 50 years of empirical experience in field applications, EPDM has the roofing industry’s longest average service life, thanks to:
  • Greater resistance to ponding water, hail, UV damage and cyclical membrane fatigue
  • High resistance to ozone, weathering and abrasion
  • Flexibility in low temperatures
  • Superior resistance to extreme heat and fire
  • Thermal shock durability
  • Restoration friendly
  • It is easier to install new roof penetrations at a later date
  • Recyclable
