Not all Membranes are Equal

Choosing the correct system for your roof isn’t always an easy prospect.
RubberBond FleeceBack leaves rivals behind, not only due to the benefits of fleece reinforcement itself, but also due to the unique patented technology used to manufacture it. Approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and the National House-Building Council (NHBC) accepts the use of RubberBond FleeceBack EPDM Roof Waterproofing Systems.

Comprising of two layers laminated together to create a resilient 2.6mm membrane, the waterproofing 1.2mm thick EPDM membrane bonded to a strong 1.4mm deep polyester fleece backing on the underside of the waterproofing membrane. RubberBond FleeceBack creates a flat roof that is 40% greater puncture resistance and 180% greater tear resistance than commercial grade 1.5mm EPDM.

“When the installation of correctly installed systems is compared, the upgrade to RubberBond FleeceBack, a higher quality, stronger product, can be installed at a similar cost of a lesser system.”
