EPDM vs HDPE

EPDM MEMBRANE HDPE
Durability Thermoset, enables exposure for decades Susceptible to stress cracking
Toughness Remains flexible at all temperatures Stiff and risks cracking at low temperatures
Elongation At over 500% Only at 15%
Cost Comparison Long life-cycle 80+years no maintenance repairs Shorter life-cycle. Frequent maintenance repairs
Material Differs Lays flat and high puncture resistance Rigid and punctures easily
Size Large so less seams and overlaps Smaller sheets so more seems and joins
