Popular Single Ply Roofing Membrane Types

Single ply membranes are usually categorized into two groups. Thermosets and Thermoplastics.

While they both have their benefits, let’s compare the two.


• Synthetic Rubber Polymer – most commonly used EPDM, CSPE and Neoprene
• Ideal for larger roofs – Their larger manufacturing size reduces seams
• Increased UV Protection with either carbon black as an additional component or titanium dioxide.
