In common with most single ply material, non-reinforced EPDM membranes will overtime try and pull back to the centre of the membrane by up to 10%. The base tie-in (RUSS) controls the membrane movement and stops the membrane moving along from the perimeter of the roof and upstand details.
ClassicBond PS RUSS (Reinforced Univeral Secure Strip) is used to mechanically secure EPDM membranes to the substrate. The strip has tape pre-applied along one edge and can be installed horizontally or vertically on conjunction with Seam Fastening Plates below the EPDM membrane for additional membrane securement.
- Ideal for perimeter securement and around penetrations
- Used for 50mm Seam Plates to securely clamp the RUSS to the vertical or horizontal surface
- Used for ClassicBond EPDM Primer
- Must be used in conjunction with the appropriate fasteners for the substrate
