Roofing and Lining systems

EPDM & TPO Certified Applicator


EPDM means Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer A single-ply rubber roofing membrane, EPDM has been the number one roofing choice of architects, roof consultants and contractors for both new construction and replacement roofing projects in the United States.

Performance: Characteristics that contribute to EPDM's overall system performance include:
  • Cyclical membrane fatigue resistance.
  • Proven hail resistance.
  • High resistance to ozone, weathering and abrasion.
  • Flexibility in low temperature.
  • Thermal shock durability.
  • Ultraviolet radiation resistance.
Sustainability: The cost effectiveness of EPDM membranes is based on the long-term performance of the material.

Energy Efficiency: Carlisle EPDM membrane offers Energy efficiency.

Innovation: Carlisle offers a number of innovative products that are proven to increase the long-term sustainability and performance of its EPDM roof systems.



TPO means Thermoplastic Polyolefin TPO is a single-ply rubber roofing membrane.
It is the fastest-growing segment of the commercial roofing industry and Carlisle is the leading supplier of this type of roofing material. Carlisle's white and tan TPO membranes are ENERGY STAR rated and Cool Roof Rating council (CRRC) certified in United States and have been directly attributed to a reduction in energy use and cooling costs for building in warm, southern climates.

Building owners in warm climates are increasingly turning to reflective roofing materials such as TPO membranes to help reduce their building energy costs and consumption. Carlisle spectro-Weld TPO features the highest initial Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) reflectivitiy rating of any TPO membrane in the market which means that building owners get a brighter, whiter roof that offers great potential for increase energy saving.

Spectro-Weld TPO can also help improve the energy output of solar photovoltaic modules by drastically reducing rooftop temperatures and increasing PV system efficiency. As the popularity and use of rooftop-mounted PV systems continues to rise, highly reflective materials such as Spectro-Weld TPO will be essential to further advancing the benefits...

Carlisle's Sure-Weld® and Spectro-Weld™ TPO membranes are outfitted with the high-performance OctaGuard® XT Weathering Package, a unique combination of eight performance-enhancing ingredients that help protect Carlisle's TPO membranes from damage caused by heat and UV.



The Roof Garden

The Roof Garden has recently been embraced in the United States. This technology improves the strucutre's energy efficiency while adding plant life in populated areas. The benefits of the modern Roof Garden have been demonstrated by the US Green Building Council's endorsement of these systems through the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmetal Design) certification program.

Advantages of Roof Gardens:
  • Reduces urban heat island effects.
  • Storm water run-off management.
  • Adds valuable/useable space providing economic benefits.
  • Energy efficiency year-round.
  • Reduces rooftop noise infiltration by up to 40dB.
  • Air and water purification.
EPDM and TPO range membranes are ideal for the Ultra Extensive Roof Gardens (shallow) with standard 15-20 years guaranties.

Lining Systems

EPDM and TPO membranes can be used for the following system:
  • Underground Tanking system
  • Water Containment and lining System
  • Tunnel Waterproofing System
  • Erosion Control Liner System

Some facts regarding the GeoEPDM:
  • Carlisle's GeoEPDM is the only potable-grade ANSI/NSF 61 EPDM on the market.
  • Carlisle's GeoEPDM is ideal for any aquaculture, water containment or canal application.
  • As a UV-stabilized membrane, GeoEPDM provides superior flexibility and dimensional stability, offering enhanced puncture and tear resistance, and resisting chemical and environmental stress-cracking.
  • GeoEPDM membrane also provides enhanced resistance to solar UV rays, ozone and oxidation.
  • GeoEPDM conforms to the most demanding sub-grades, and ensures a smooth, virtually wrinkle-free surface.
