Are you searching for a single ply roofing solution that is stronger and more reliable than most? One option to consider is vulcanized roofing membranes, more often referred to as thermoset membranes. Roofs such as TPO or PVC possess heat-welded seams, which efficiently prevent water leaking. Thermoset membranes on the other hand, such as EPDM vulcanized rubber, are sealed and bonded prior to application, which creates an especially strong resistance to damages from:
- Sun (UV Rays)

Types of Thermoset Membranes
There are varying kinds of roofing membranes, and vulcanized rubber roofs fall into the thermoset membrane category. These types of membranes formulate an incredibly resilient, chemical resistant surface with cross-linking polymers throughout the material. Among the additional thermoset membranes you can find in the industry are:
- Chlorosulfonated: This type of synthetic rubber is great due to chemicals and moisture; because it is very sturdy, UV resistant, and is very adhesive, it is a great choice for vulcanized rubber roofing.
- Epichlorohydrin: Epichlorophydrin is pretty similar to EPDM, so its an excellent choice for rubber roofing material. While this synthetic rubber is a lot like EPDM, it is able to withstand oils a lot better.
- Neoprene: If you are interested in rubber that is resistant to oil, can last a long time, and can withstand heat, then neoprene is a great choice for your thermoset membrane. This type of membrane isn’t a synthetic rubber, but is made of synthetic polymers.
- Polyethylene: By using ethylene to create a synthetic resin, you come up with polyethylene, a material that is very flexible and be able to withstand a lot while also being incredibly light.
- Polyisobutylene: Polyisobutylene, or butyl rubber, that is a synthetic rubber used for roofing membranes. Is is able to withstand weather, heat, UV rays, as well as being very long-lasting.
Keep in mind, vulcanized rubber also requires specialized coatings. A professional roofer can handle your coatings in the future to ensure the right combination is used in application.
