Why Select FiberTite® Roofing Membranes Over Other Roofing Products?
FiberTite is a unique DuPont™ Elvaloy® (Ketone Ethylene Ester - KEE) based roofing system that was invented over a quarter century ago. Today, over 99% of FiberTite roofs ever installed are still performing. Our success can be summarized by four facts:
- FiberTite roofing membranes start with the industry’s heaviest base fabric. Add to that our proprietary knit design, and you’ve got roofing systems with superior puncture and tear resistance.
- FiberTite's proprietary formula includes the industry's highest KEE content, allowing our roofing membranes to maintain excellent flexibility, as well as chemical and UV resistance.
- FiberTite single ply roofing was invented and is manufactured by Seaman Corporation, a recognized world leader in coated fabrics for over 55 years.
- FiberTite is the only roofing membrane that exceeds the new ASTM D6754-02 standard for Elvaloy KEE Content.
Instead of relying on high levels of liquid plasticizer for flexibility during the manufacturing process, FiberTite membrane roofing uses the highest Elvaloy KEE content. KEE's inherent excellent chemical resistance, and the high content combined with the FiberTite proprietary formula allows our single-ply roofing membrane to maintain flexibility over time.

Because the basic formula of FiberTite membrane roofing was developed from years of experience, we got it right the first time. The FiberTite formula has never changed since its introduction over 25 years ago. Read More | Close
FiberTite roofing membranes are made of a thermoplastic material, and provide a molecular weld via sealing the seam with a heat source. Molecular welds are 10 times more secure than those created with a mechanical seaming process.
FiberTite, is Energy Star® compliant and reduces energy costs. As an example, according to the Department of Energy, a white membrane saves $ .07 per square foot every year in 'cloudy' Akron, Ohio. Savings in sunnier, warmer climates can save over $ .20 per square foot. Read More | Close
FiberTite Roofing Membrane vs. Built-Up Roofing and Modified Bitumen Roofing - Potential Installation Issues, Poor Protec tion from the Elements and Energy Inefficiencies
All of the ‘protection’ needed for your roof is engineered into one monolithic FiberTite sheet, reducing the probability of installation error. And FiberTite’s high KEE polymer content provides excellent chemical resistance. In addition, FiberTite roofing membranes provide excellent puncture resistance via the industry’s heaviest fabric, coupled with our proprietary knit design.
