Carlisle SynTec Inc., Carlisle, Pa., and Firestone Building Products Co., Carmel, Ind., have formed the EPDM Roofing Association (ERA). ERA is an independent trade association developed to provide education about EPDM roof systems to the public and construction industry and promote the application of EPDM roof systems.

In January, ERA elected representatives from Carlisle, Firestone and various material suppliers to its board of directors. ERA’s primary goal is to devise a plan to develop technical information and promote awareness of EPDM roof systems.
