New FleeceBACK Membranes


Carlisle SynTec, the leading manufacturer of single-ply roofing systems, introduces new, five-foot wide FleeceBACK® EPDM membranes. These 1,5 m by 12,2 m membranes weigh less than 45 kg and offer easier material handling and rooftop delivery than standard-sized roofing products.

The new five-foot FleeceBACK membranes are ideal for tall buildings located in crowded inner-city neighborhoods where rooftop access is limited and the use of large cranes to load the material is impractical or impossible. Offering the ease and convenience of a single-ply roof system without the hassle of large, heavy rolls, the new membranes easily fit in most buildings' service elevators and are an ideal alternative to commonly used asphalt-based roofing products.

Utilizing its patented hot melt adhesive technology that provides consistent bond strength between the fleece backing and membrane, Carlisle's new membranes offer the same superior puncture and tear resistance as traditional FleeceBACK EPDM membranes. The smaller FleeceBACK membranes are also available in the same 100- and 115-mil thicknesses as traditional FleeceBACK membranes and come standard with Carlisle's traditional or proprietary AFX fleece that inhibits asphalt bleed-through to the membrane.

To eliminate the cumbersome installation equipment associated with larger rolls, Carlisle offers three, portable adhesive options for the new five-foot FleeceBACK membranes. These portable adhesives include easy-to-handle, five gallon, cold-applied adhesive buckets, aqua-based adhesive in caulk-like tubes and a FAST Adhesive box set that comes with everything you need to install a strong, FAST-FleeceBACK system.

Like traditional FleeceBACK membranes, the new membranes feature Carlisle's innovative Factory-Applied Tape (FAT), eliminating the need to use slow-drying, cold-applied adhesives on the seams. Applied in a factory-controlled setting, FAT seam technology provides uniform adhesive width and thickness, ensuring a watertight seal within minutes of seam installation.

All FleeceBACK roof systems come with a host of pressure-sensitive and prefabricated accessories that increase installation speed, saving contractors both time and money. These innovative accessories are easy to install and have a proven history in the commercial roofing market.
