We’d like to see your images showing applications for Liquid Rubber, so please email them to us.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures showing the difference Liquid Rubber makes on building repair and maintenance projects like yours.
This is an old rusty roof sheet that had blown off an agricultural building. We had no cleaning equipment to hand but wanted to put the liquid rubber EPDM to the test. We simple brushed over the sheet with an old rag to remove dust and applied one single coat of the rubber.
The reason that it is such a good rust inhibitor is that it is not only completely waterproof but is also an electrical insulator. In order for rust to form it needs both moisture and conductivity – we stop both!
This roof was asphalt, covered with grit. It was impossible to trace the many leaks.
The grit was all swept off and any lose material removed. The roof was then coated with the rubber filled primer to strengthen the existing substrate and enable the liquid rubber epdm to be applied as you can see here.
This is typical roof that has metal roof sheets that were originally plastic coated. The UV from the sun has degraded the coating on this south facing elevation to such an extent that it has allot completely disappeared and the steel roof sheets will eroded very quickly with out protection. The seals around the bolts have also been eroded and let in water in numerous places.
All that was required was a jet wash and a single coat of liquid rubber EPDM. The liquid rubber is a great corrosion inhibitor due to it's properties of being impervious to water and being non-conducting. Corrosion needs both water and conductivity and the rubber eliminates both.
The roof had been cleaned at this stage. It was originally an asphalt roof that had felt repairs and an unknown coating but the repairs had proved only short term.
You can see the black rubber filled primer behind the guys working and they are now applying the liquid rubber EPDM. The flexible epoxy/polyester primer not only ensures a good bond but also serves to strengthen the original substrate.
This is the completed roof put to the test as soon as it is finished. One of the properties of the rubber is that it will take ponding water indefinitely making it ideal for waterproofing old degraded flat roofs.
This caravan was originally fitted wit an EPDM roof but began to leak quite early on it's life. After giving it a thorough clean the whole roof was coated with Liquid Roof .
No more leaks. After one of the wettest winters on record the roof not only looks new but didn't let a drop of water in from the moment it was coated with Liquid Roof.
This is quite a new caravan but had hail stone dents and leaks and it could not be insured. This shot was taken after the Liquid Roof was applied and the owner is now able to get insurance.
