In common with most single ply material, EPDM will overtime try to shrink. ClassicBond RUSS tape (Reinforced Universal Secure Strip) is used to mechanically secure EPDM membranes to a roof deck where the membrane turns up through an angle change, for example wall upstand. The strip has tape pre-applied along one edge, which is bonded to the underside of the EPDM using ClassicBond Rubber Primer and can be installed horizontally or vertically in conjunction with seam fastening plates for additional membrane securement. Any further movement is accommodated by the EPDM’s ability to elongate by over 300%.
