EPDM Membrane

Resilient synthetic rubber membrane widely used on low-slope roofing projects for over 50 years in the United States and worldwide.

Advantages of EPDM


Meeting or exceeding ASTM standards, black EPDM roofs have been used for more than 50 years and white EPDM roofs have been used for more than 30 years.

Energy Efficient

Black EPDM helps to reduce heating costs in northern climates and white EPDM aids in reducing cooling costs in southern climates.

Rooftop Safety

Black EPDM helps to melt frost, dew, and ice, reduces a roof's snow load, and dries more quickly than a light-colored roof.

Reduces Condensation

Black EPDM membrane can help to reduce the potential for condensation issues on the roof.


EPDM membrane provides excellent resistance to any weathering and hail damage.


EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) offers a proven history of performance over 58 years based on superior flexibility, elongation, UV resistance, and hail damage resistance. Dark-colored EPDM helps building owners save on heating costs, and light-colored EPDM helps building owners save on cooling costs.


EPDM Installation

Installation is important when it comes to putting a single-ply roofing system on a building. There are over 150 variations of details available from Carlisle SynTec for EPDM roofing systems. Videos have been put together for many of these details, and can be found below.
