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.
