EPDM rubber has a distinct advantage over asphaltic- and plastic-based products, as it is available in dark and light colors without sacrificing heat aging resistance or needing special treatment. The dark-gray-colored Sure-Seal membrane, offering the highest UV resistance on the market, helps reduce heating costs and is the smart choice if you spend most of your energy budget on keeping your people and building warm. Dark-colored Sure-Seal EPDM also helps avoid potential condensation and safety issues associated with white roofs in northern/colder climates. The white reflective Sure-White membrane also offers excellent UV resistance and is an ideal product for southern climates where you spend most of your energy budget on air conditioning your building.
