Hertalan® EPDM Rubber Roofing Systems

The sophisticated EPDM rubber roofing systems from HERTALAN® make permanent flat roof, façade and building waterproofing easier than ever. Whether it be as EPDM membranes, sheets or strips – with HERTALAN®, we offer the right product for every application, custom-made to your specifications.

Thanks to HERTALAN®’s unique material properties, it is unbeatable in terms of flexibility and durability. The Süddeutsches Kunststoff-Zentrum (SKZ), Germany’s largest plastics institute, which tested our HERTALAN® EPDM membranes as part of a long-term study, has credited the material with a service life of more than 50 years.

Sustainable and Easy to Install EPDM Roofing Membranes

Based on its long service life, HERTALAN® EPDM rubber has an excellent eco balance sheet and can also be recycled in an eco-friendly manner, making it the ideal choice for architects looking for sustainable roofing systems.

In addition, the fact that HERTALAN® EPDM rubber roofing systems can be installed without a naked flame ensures additional safety in the workplace and eliminates the risk of roof fires. And thanks to factory pre-assembled seam joints, only around five per cent of the manual connections have to be made on the actual construction site.

The HERTALAN® Product Range

Logo Hertalan Easy Cover

HERTALAN® Easy Cover EPDM membranes combine the material properties of EPDM with tailor-made solutions. EPDM sheets are vulcanised together using our hot-bonding method. The roofing system is supplied as a perfect fit, like a tailored suit, in a single piece to the building site.

HERTALAN® Easy Cover can be applied easily, efficiently and without any need for naked flames, are root-resistant according to the FLL and have a service life of more than 50 years (SKZ study).

This roofing system is suitable for any flat roof – whether it be loose-laid with ballast, fixed mechanically or bonded into position.

Hot bonding is a method in which our EPDM strips are homogeneously bonded together using hot vulcanisation to create expansive membranes. High pressure and carefully controlled temperatures ensure that a 100% tight bond is achieved. Thanks to the unchanging conditions and constant quality checks, we are able to guarantee consistently high-quality products.

This method also means that HERTALAN® EPDM roofing and waterproofing membranes can be created to any size, and any specification, making them the perfect choice for larger or more challenging roofing projects.

HERTALAN® RhinoBond® fixing system

The most advanced fixing method for EPDM roofing membranes

Experience the new dimension of mechanical fixing with the RhinoBond® fixing system and our HERTALAN® Easy Cover EPDM rubber roofing membranes.

In the past, membranes had to be bonded or secured in place with ballast. With the patented electromagnetic RhinoBond® induction method, this is no longer required. The roofing insulation is secured in place using induction-compatible fastening plates. Once the EPDM membrane is laid, induction welds the roof sealing to the fastening plates. As a result, a virtually seamless roof is created in a short space of time, and secured in place mechanically without penetrating the roof seal. With the faster covering time thanks to streamlined installation, productivity on the roof improves.

Advantages at a glance:

  • No penetration of the roof membrane
  • Even distribution of wind load
  • Up to 30% fewer fixing elements
  • Efficient installation
  • Rapid protection from moisture

HERTALAN® EASY WELD is an EPDM rubber roofing system that is especially suitable for mechanically-fixed roofing and waterproofing. It’s an EPDM waterproofing membrane with a joining edge for hot-air welding. Around the edges, the membranes have UV-resistant strips made from a thermoplastic elastomer. During application, these strips are welded together using hot air, resulting in a permanent, homogeneous and water-tight bond.

HERTALAN® EASY WELD is FLL-tested and root and rhizome-resistant, making it the ideal choice for living roofs. Around 50m² can be sealed with just one seam connection. HERTALAN® EASY WELD BASIC (1400mm wide) can be used for loose or bonded application, and EASY WELD MF (1400mm and 700mm wide) can be used for mechanical fixation.
