Approved by both the British Board of Agrément (certificate no.02/3967) and the National House-Building Council (NHBC), you can be assured you are receiving a product that meets the highest quality standards.


RubberBond FleeceBack leaves rivals behind, not only due to the benefits of fleece reinforcement, but also due to the unique patented technology used in the manufacturing process. Comprising two layers laminated together to create a resilient 3mm membrane, the waterproofing 1.2mm thick EPDM membrane bonded to a strong 1.8mm deep polyester fleece backing.


Invest today to save later

The average annual cost of a RubberBond FleeceBack EPDM roof system offers significant savings beyond those of a typical 10 or 20 year roof system. A long-term EPDM solution reduces the hassle and cost associated with a lower quality roof.


Energy efficiency

Carlisle EPDM roof systems provide performance and savings for decades. Long-term analysis demonstrates that choosing EPDM can cut the lifecycle costs of a roof by as much as 25%, an investment resulting in savings throughout the life of a roof. Research demonstrates that the amount of energy required to produce EPDM, from extraction to installation, is lower than any other single ply material.

Weather resistance and reparability

Carlisle recently updated its Xenon Arc weathering data which accurately reflects EPDM’s superior long-term performance. The Xenon Arc test measures how much energy a product can be exposed to without exhibiting cracks or crazing. Carlisle’s EPDM achieved 41,580 kj/m², outperforming its own TPO and PVC membranes by more than double. The long-term weather resistance and reparability of EPDM continue to be major points of differentiation that building owners and design professionals take into consideration when selecting roofing systems. A roof’s primary function remains to keep a building dry and EPDM is unmatched in its ability to do so.
