About Rhepanol FK
Rhepanol FK is the oldest single ply roofing membrane, available for over 50 years and is currently the only single ply membrane with a full life cycle. Not only is Rhepanol long lasting, strong, waterproof and highly tear resistant, it proves to be environmentally friendly. Rhepanol is a polyisobutilene (PIB) based roofing sheet and the only single ply membrane with an integrated polyester fleece backing, which enhances diffusion and secure fastening whilst providing additional protection against strain and movement from the substrate.
Rhepanol is available in two types; Rhepanol FK and Rhepanol HG.
