Firestone Building Products have a selection of training videos. These are a great aid for our customers. They have guided our customers from all over Australia to confidently carry out a do-it-yourself installation. After watching, and you are one of our customers, please feel free to contact us on 1300 733 113 for further technical expertise for fine-tuning your skills. Our 20 years experience with all aspects of this product & the processes will help you with the finer details and hints if you are not entirely confident of a perfect result.
- All detail procedures must be carried out in dry and clean conditions
- Try to be as neat and careful as possible with your detailing. The EPDM process does not allow for silicon sealers or other patch-up products to be used. The Firestone EPDM seaming and flashing processes are very forgiving & so a fault can be easily & successfully corrected with FormFlash, SA flashing or even another panel of EPDM liner seamed into place.
- The only cutting tool on site must be a pair of scissors with rounded-end blades. Utility or Stanley type knives should be forbidden.
- Hint: When cutting Seam Splice Tape or FormFlash with scissors place a strip of backing tape onto the sticky side to prevent the scissors from sticking.

Video 5 of 19: How to make a vertical seam on a cut corner using QuickSeam Splice Tape for the overlap seam. You will then need to use a circular patch of QuickSeam FormFlash at the compromised bottom corner and Firestone LapSealant HS to bead finish around the FormFlash. Please note. This cut & seam process can be eliminated by folding the surplus liner triangular pig ear of liner back in behind the liner. Folding has no detrimental effect on Firestone PondGard EPDM
