Abstract:

Three uncured elastomeric membranes were investigated as part of ongoing research into alternative roofing systems for military construction. Literature, manufacturers data, and field applications were investigated to identify the properties and characteristics of chlorinated polyethylene CPE, chlorosulfonated polyethylene CSPE, and polyisobutylene PIB, and the advantages and disadvantages associated with their use. It was concluded that Corps of Engineers use of these three materials should not be considered until an industry-wide standard for their manufacture is developed. In addition, results of future work which will test actual roofing applications should be considered before a final decision is made. Keywords Installation Reroofing High strength. Author
