The article focuses on the use of Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) rubber as a roofing material. Bill Tippins, EPDM product manager for Firestone Building Products Co., said EPDM has been a-round as a major roofing membrane material for more than 40 years, and manufacturers continue to develop new products based on it. It is stated that while EPDM has lost market share in the past few years, it is still preferred as a roofing material by many contractors.
