fEPDM Piloted @ Weyerhauser (IP) Paper in Washington
By: Tom Frankel
Post Date: March 25th 2009
Weyerhauser has completed a one year pilot study of SSI fEPDM fine bubble disc membranes vs. another well known brand plain EPDM membrane. According to preliminary observations, the fEPDM membrane showed no obvious signs of ageing, and was described as “like new” whereas the well known competitive brand of plain EPDM membrane showed significant creep/stretching of up to 5%.
Stay tuned for more information, including comparative test data on creep and plasticizer extraction from fEPDM and PTFE coated EPDM membranes as compared to plain EPDM membranes.
