Hertalan EPDM roofing products have an outstanding resistance to ageing, are environmentally sustainable, durable, long-lasting and fully waterproof, which make it an excellent choice for your flat roof.
EPDM rubber building products were developed in the late 1950’s, specifically for the use in the construction industry of the Middle East. The climate in the Middle East required a construction product that could withstand large temperature fluctuations. The product had to be flexible and remain stable at temperatures between -45 and +120° C. EPDM rubber turned out to be a very suitable product for this market.
EPDM products have been used across Europe, America, and the Middle-East, to successfully waterproof roofs for over 50 years. Research has shown that EPDM RUBBER on these roofs exceeds the expected standards. The German SKZ in Würzburg states that the active ingredient EPDM has a long service life of over 50 years. This is a guarantee for a durable and waterproof flat roof sealing.
Further, independent studies by institutions such as the NIBE show that EPDM roofing for flat roofs is the most environmentally friendly choice. EPDM is installed without naked flame, is recyclable and has a very long lifespan.
