The characteristics of an elastomeric membrane roof

The elastomeric membrane has several advantageous characteristics. It is well-liked by architects because it settles, no matter the weather, whether it is very cold or even very hot. The membrane is also ideal for flat roofs.

Features of an elastomeric membrane roof: :

  • Very good lifespan from 10 to 35 years;
  • Very good resistance to weather, extreme temperatures (no thermal shock breakage) and UV;
  • Very high impermeability;
  • Cold installation is now possible, reducing the risk of fire;
  • Easy to maintain and repair;
  • Ideal for flat roofs;
  • Aesthetics: Thanks to the many colours available (black, white, green, grey, etc.), the elastomeric roofing membrane provides a harmonious and refined look to your building;
  • Good value for money.

The traditional elastomeric

Also called modified bitumen membrane (SBS) is composed of a base membrane of polymers modified asphalt and a finishing membrane composed of small coloured ceramic granules. It requires a heat application process with a torch. Indeed, the joints of the base membrane are heated with a torch to melt the asphalt and create a sealant that sticks to the cap sheet. This process ensures a better seal.

The elastomeric membrane with a bonded system

The elastomeric membrane with a bonded system is made of synthetic rubber. It is smooth because it is not covered with gravel. It requires a cold application process, without nails, therefore offering full adhesion. This type of membrane is ideal for roofs where the use of flame is not authorized, or simply not desired, such as for schools and hospitals. These membranes can be installed without problems at temperatures as low as -10°C, up to temperatures of 30°C.
