EPICLAD FBS - Fleece-Backed EPDM Rubber Membrane
Hassle Free re roofing overlay solution
Viking Epiclad FBS membrane is manufactured for waterproofing rough surfaces, or retrofitting over bitumen, malthoid, concrete or tongue and groove sarking.
What is it and how does it work?
Viking Epiclad FBS is made from the same EPDM rubber polymer as Viking Epiclad. It also incorporates a polyester fibre matt fleece-backing which promotes the bond with the substrate, transforming an ugly roof surface into an aesthetically gratifying roof.
Our Epiclad Rubber membrane offers a range of benefits - click here to read more about Epiclad.
High impact and UV resistant
The extra fleece-back and tough Epiclad rubber provide extra cushioning against puncture and tearing. It is 2.50mm thick, including the fleece.
Viking Epiclad has excellent elasticity, tensile and elongation properties and is virtually indestructible by UV, ozone and weathering.
Cost effective, hassle free reroofing solution
Overlaying over an existing substrate negates any costs associated with stripping the current roofing surface; no costly reconstruction or reconditioning of the existing roof and no redesigning costs, as the new roof loading is limited.
Overlaying also avoids the hassle of exposing the interior of the building to the changing weather conditions as the roof is replaced.
Reduction in waste
As the Viking Epiclad FBS re roofing solution is overlaid over the existing roofs surface there is no need to dump the old roof - thus reducing wastage costs and avoiding filling the local land-fill with inorganic waste.
Where can it be installed?
Viking Epiclad FBS is a great solution for low-slope roof overlays and/or applying to rough substrates.
Viking Epiclad FBS meets the AS/NZS 4020 testing of products for use in contact with drinking water standard. So Epiclad FBS complies with the New Zealand Building Code's (G12) potability clause.
Ease of Approvals
Viking Epiclad FBS is BRANZ appraised. What does this mean? Well, it has been independently tested in New Zealand, by BRANZ, to ensure it can handle New Zealand's harsh conditions and complies with the New Zealand Building Code.
It complies with E2/AS1 as an "Acceptable Solution" as part of New Zealand Building Code requirements.
