Certainly, all our EPDM sheets are designed to be connectable. This feature is particularly handy for covering larger roofs that exceed the maximum size of a single membrane sheet. Additionally, it might be more manageable to install the membrane in smaller segments, depending on your installation preferences.
Is It Possible to Install EPDM on Top of Current Roofing Materials?
This EPDM membrane is versatile and can adhere to numerous underlying surfaces. This detailed guide explores the specific guidelines and recommendations for each roofing system, including the types of surfaces suitable for bonding and the necessary adhesives for each scenario.

Are Special Tools Required for Installing an EPDM Roof?
For the installation of an EPDM roof, common tools like a regular 9" roller set, a mini roller, and a brush are essential for applying adhesives, primers, and Arboflex PU. Additionally, a Seam Roller is highly beneficial, especially for working with tapes and joins in systems like ClassicBond. For the Resitrix system, a heat gun is necessary to effectively seal the joins.
How Long Does It Take To Install
Typically, installing a ClassicBond roof is a fairly swift process, especially if you're equipped with fundamental knowledge of the preparation and necessary steps. The time it takes to install can vary based on factors like the existing base layer, roof size and type, and additional elements such as skylights.
A notable example is presented by RoofScout in the video below. The roofer demonstrates the installation of ClassicBond on a standalone, timber-boarded structure.
For Sam (below), it took him just under a 1hour and 30minutes.He installed this roof alone and installed edge trims which made a difference to the installation time.
What are the Production Processes for Natural and Synthetic Rubber?
Currently, over 90% of natural rubber is sourced from Southeast Asia, thanks to the region's suitable climate. Rubber trees thrive exclusively in the "Rubber Belt," a global equatorial region characterized by warm and moist conditions. On the other hand, general-purpose synthetic rubber is derived from two primary gases: butadiene, a by-product of refining petroleum, and styrene, obtained either from the coking process or as a by-product of petroleum refining.
Is ClassicBond EPDM Roofing BBA Certified?
Yes, the ClassicBond membrane holds the British Board of Agrément certificate, No. 11/4853 (issued to Flex-R Ltd). It also holds fire ratings for each of the thicknesses available.
