Case Study Provided by DRS – Dome & Roofing Solutions.
Scope: This 12,600 surface feet dome had a rubberized elastomeric coating (ie., acrylic) applied in 2011 by a local contractor. It was the wrong protection and it started showing signs of failure in just 2 years. To preserve the fabric, we punctured the water bubbles and filled them full of liquid EPDM rubber rather than remove the air form. We coated the entire dome in a UV resistance, waterproof, seamless rubber membrane that has a life expectancy of 20 years.
