Single-ply membranes are factory-manufactured sheet membranes. They generally are categorized as either thermoplastic or thermoset. Thermoplastic materials can be repeatedly softened when heated and hardened when cooled. Thermoset materials solidify, or "set," irreversibly after heating. Single ply membranes commonly are referred to by their chemical acronyms, such as:
EPDM (Ethyline Propolyne Diene Terpolymer) is a single-ply rubber roofing membrane that is resistant to a high degree of ozone, ultraviolet, weathering, and abrasion damage. Because of its tolerance to a wide array of weather conditions and superb second generation application, EPDM is one of the most sustainable and environmental materials currently used in the industry. Three application methods (ballasted, fully adhered, and mechanically attached) are available for EPDM.
