Liquid EPDM is an ideal membrane for many structures

Liquid EPDM is an ideal membrane for many structures. The front tank has not yet received a coating while the back has. Notice how the back tank is now rust free.

Here at DRS we use liquid EPDM for many applications. It combines the durability of regular EPDM but without the seams. It does not contain any leachable or sacrificial components, so protection does not diminish over time nor does it contaminate the ground. And we can apply it with little to no disruption to your operations.

Liquid EPDM is a synthetic rubber designed to have excellent heat, ultra violet (UV), and ozone stability.

The outstanding characteristics include:

  1. Waterproof
  2. Chemical resistant*, as well as acid and alkali resistant
  3. UV and ozone resistant
  4. Resistant to polar solvents
  5. Broad temperature tolerance range (from 300F to -62F)
  6. Flexible
  7. Stops rust
  8. Does not chalk or become brittle
  9. We can give you any color you wish
  10. The product was invented 25 years ago
  11. We can apply with very little to no disruption to ongoing operations

* Some of the corrosive chemicals it has shown resistance to include: sulfuric acid, nitric acid; sodium dichromate; phosphoric acid; trichloroethylene, sodium hydroxide; potassium hydroxide; potassium cyanide; silver cyanide; and nickel chloride.

Applications

Not only is liquid EPDM an ideal roofing membrane, it can also be used:

  1. To coat metal siding
  2. Waterproof concrete tanks
  3. Protect against corrosive and humid environments
  4. Ponds and fountains
  5. Swimming pools
  6. And many others!

What is Liquid EPDM?

Liquid EPDM is a synthetic rubber designed to have excellent heat, ultra violet, and ozone stability, which means a longer lasting solution for you. It was invented 25 years ago and is produced in the USA by ProGuard www.proguardcoatings.com.

EPDM is used to make roofing membrane, radiator and steam hoses, high and low temp seals, as a component to tires, and electrical insulation. The basic building blocks of EPDM are Ethylene, Propylene, and Dicylopentadiene. It is very durable and has a long lifespan.
