Yes, the roof can be accessed for periodical maintenance, but take care to ensure no sharp objects (e.g., small stones) are attached to the underside of footwear. In case of regular foot traffic, the membrane must be protected with a walkway, e.g., pavers placed on protective rubber feet.
Firestone RubberCover EPDM is a 100% cured single-ply roofing membrane made of a synthetic rubber Ethylene-Propylene-Diene Terpolymer. Since 1980, more than 1,000,000,000 square metres of Firestone EPDM membranes have been successfully installed on commercial, industrial and residential roofs worldwide. Various roll sizes, the biggest being 15m wide and 61m long.
Yes, the minimum temperature for application of the adhesives is +5ºC and the maximum humidity is 80%. If the temperature is likely to drop below freezing during the following 48 hours after application, Firestone Bonding Adhesive must be used instead.
Approximate figures are as follows:
Bonding adhesive is 2 sq. metres per litre.
Water-based adhesive (two-sided application method) is 2 sq. metres per litre.
Water-based adhesive (one-sided wet mate method) is 3 sq. metres per litre.Must the membrane be cleaned before applying Firestone QuickPrime Plus?
No, except when the membrane is excessively dirty, in which case it must be cleaned with water and a clean rag.
Bonding adhesive must always be applied to both surfaces. Water-based adhesive can be applied to either to the substrate only (wet mate method), or using the two-sided contact method, i.e., both to the underside of the membrane and the substrate, depending on various
factors like weather conditions. Please refer to the “Installation Guidelines for Modular Water
