- Rubber / EPDM roofing is extremely long-lasting and resilient, durable for at least 50 years, however, accidents can happen. If you come across an accidental tear within your EPDM Rubber Flat Roof, we now have our EPDM Repair Kit available to perfectly reseal and waterproof the damaged section. These repair patches are perfect for tears of up to 30mm (6′ Repair Patch) or up to 50mm (9′ Repair Patch). If your tear is large, please consider purchasing a cover tape separate at a larger size to cover your tear.
What is included in the EPDM Repair Kit?
- A Waterproof Cover Tape Patch
- 500ml Primer
- Scub Pad
2. After the primer has flashed off (Left to react on material for 3-5 minutes), Use our Cover Strip Patch and completely cover the tear or puncture. Remove backing and place over the puncture, from the center onward, making sure that any air is pushed out from under the patch.
3. Roll with a hand roller.
4. Optional – apply lap sealant around the edges of the flashing as a precautionary measure.
Remember that when using chemical products, you should wear protective clothing and ask someone to watch over you whilst you work. For more safety information have a look at our blog about working on EPDM flat roofs.
