Does the membrane come in various colours & what does it look like?

Which substrates can I adhere the membrane to?
Compatible surfaces are wood, PIR and PUR insulation, bitumen, concrete, masonry, aluminium, zinc and lead. Classic Bond EPDM can overlay virtually any old roof provided the roof decking is sound and the existing structure can carry the load of the new roofing system.
Can Classic Bond EPDM Membrane be adhered on a wet surface?
No, ponded water, snow, frost and ice must be removed from the roof surface before installation of the membrane.
Can EPDM be coated or Painted?
Acrylic coatings are available that can be applied directly to a prepared EPDM surface. Preparation usually consists of cleaning the EPDM with a pressure washer and a detergent solution or wash. Latex-based paint products can also be used, however, the EPDM manufacturer should be contacted prior to application to ensure compatibility and continuation of warranty coverage.
