What is RubberBond roofing?

RubberBond roofing refers to a specific type of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) roofing membrane that is applied by flat roofers. RubberBond FleeceBack™ EPDM is popular with flat roofing specialists for both commercial and domestic sites, due to the fact that the single-ply membrane is incredibly clean and efficient to install, as well as offering superior durability and long-lasting performance. Its unique selling point is its fleece backing, which enhances its strength and means that it can be applied to a wide range of roofing surfaces.

Our RubberBond FleeceBackEPDM also features factory-applied tape (FAT™) – a unique offering from the product’s manufacturer, Carlisle SynTec. While a membrane’s seam is usually applied during installation, FAT™ is implemented in a factory-controlled setting beforehand. This is beneficial for a number of reasons: –

  1. It reduces time and labour during the roof installation process;
  2. It lowers any risk of human error;
  3. It enables flat roofers to produce a seam with uniform width and thickness. The EPDM membrane also needs 67 per cent fewer seams than a modified bitumen version, which again reduces time and increases efficiency. The seams can be bonded to other roofing systems and materials, which makes it versatile and convenient for domestic and commercial roof projects of all shapes and sizes.

Widespread approval

RubberBond FleeceBackEPDM is a high-quality and reliable EPDM roofing material. It has been approved by the British Board of Agrément (BBA), which certifies that it has a lifespan of more than 35 years, and its high-performance waterproofing system has been accepted by the National House Building Council (NHBC). It also achieves the highest European fire ratings. It is an innovative roofing product that is trusted by flat roofers around the UK to make your domestic or commercial property’s flat roof strong, long-lasting and leak-free.

The benefits of RubberBond FleeceBack™ EPDM

Homeowners will benefit from the peace of mind that their roof is as waterproof as possible – with the EPDM material repelling all moisture and ensuring that the roof and property are safe from water damage. The long-lasting membrane is resistant to the impact of weather and other factors, meaning that it does not crack over time. In fact, RubberBond’s durability assessment showed that the product will function just as well after 30 years as on the day that it was installed! For homeowners, this reduces any risk of roof repairs further down the line.

For commercial property developers or building contractors, our RubberBond FleeceBack™ EPDM roofing system offers the convenience of a safe, smooth and quick installation – as well as an incredible product for your client, of course! We do not use heat or flames when installing the membrane, and we are able to complete the project quickly so that disruption within your building is minimised. Our RubberBond roofers are able to apply the membrane efficiently to roofs of all sizes and shapes, making the product ideal for commercial projects.

The South Thames Roofing team enjoys the versatility that RubberBond FleeceBackEPDM offers, as it means that the product can be used for projects of all kinds – from roof repairs, renovations and overlayments to new builds and waterproofing for green and living roofs.


How does our product compare to other EPDM roofing systems?

RubberBond FleeceBackEPDM is stronger, longer-lasting, quicker to install and more durable than standard EDPM roofing systems. To be specific, it is twice as strong, with the 2.6mm-thick fleece-reinforced sheet offering 40 per cent more puncture resistance and 180 per cent more tear resistance than a standard 1.52mm-thick sheet of EPDM. On top of this, the FAT™ seams are 75 per cent faster to install and offer 30 per cent more strength than standard seams. So, while standard rubber roofing is an excellent roofing material, RubberBond FleeceBackEPDM enhances the benefits to ensure a superior-quality roof.
