EPDM panels create cool roofs

March 01, 2009 |



As the widest white EPDM membrane sheet in the industry, 25-foot-wide RubberGard EcoWhite EPDM membrane panels reduce labor and materials costs. The reduction of overall seaming required also enhances watertight integrity, Firestone's EPDM product manager Jim Jannasch told BD+C. EcoWhite is one of the industry's most reflective white membranes, with an initial solar reflectance of 0.8 and a solar reflective index of 99.

Applications: As a white-on-black bi-laminate EPDM membrane, EcoWhite is used as the waterproofing layer in a fully adhered roof system for both new construction and re-roof applications.
