Key features & benefits of Pondgard-epdm
Firestone PondGard is a high quality EPDM synthetic rubber waterproof membrane designed to withstand the test of time. Its excellent resistance to UV exposure, high temperatures, oxidation and frost allows the Firestone PondGard membrane to retain its mechanical properties for countless years, even when exposed to the weather. Projects installed over 40 years ago are still functional and are therefore living proof of this durability.
Flexible and elastic
Firestone PondGard works well on all kinds of support. It adapts to the creativity of designers, regardless of the complexity of the pond, with optimal aesthetic results.
With a thickness of 1.0 mm, Firestone PondGard is a robust membrane with mechanical properties that are perfectly adapted to the challenges related to water storage. Its elasticity (> 300%) and flexibility (even at -45° C) allow it to adapt to the inevitable movements of the support and to the irregularities of the substrate (excellent puncture resistance) throughout its life.
Quick and easy installation
The installation and assembly of the Firestone PondGard membrane are extremely simple and allow for a perfect finish. The Firestone accessories and the membrane’s flexibility allow sealing even the most intricate details. No machine is required and the number of seams is limited in view of the large dimensions of the panels (from 93 m² up to 930 m²). Even after many years of use, Firestone PondGard membranes can be reassembled in case of any adjustment or repair of the pond.
Thanks to its chemical inertness and resistance to algae and micro-organisms, the Firestone PondGard membrane does not release chemicals into the environment. Tests carried out by the Water Research Centre in the United Kingdom (WRc) show that it is not hazardous to aquatic fauna.
