What type of caulk or roof sealer for 312qbx

Hi folks,
I was just up on my roof cleaning it for the season and found a small hole where it appears that a branch may have punctured the roof. What is the best type of caulk/sealant to use on this EPDM roof? I really appreciate your thoughts.
Best,
Fred and Brenda

Eternabond tape.

Check with your dealers parts dept to see if they sell small rolls.

Just patch it with a piece of Eternabond tape and forget about it.

Hope you get it repaired, if you have tape left over just keep it in a bag and pack it someplace so you have it with you.

On a rubber roof use only Dicor.

Not sure if this would work but this tape is available at Home Depot in roofing section.
EPDM Rubber P - 11/32 In. X 7/32 In. X17'. $9.98

Actually I think it would be to narrow for a repair like a tear in a roof.

Now I am confused. I have done multiple searches and every place I look suggests that Eternabond is safe and very functional on an EPDM roof?
Thanks,
Fred and Brenda

the glue used on Eternabond tape does not attack any type of roofing membrane, but it does stick and it sticks real good... clean the area thoroughly that you are patching before you stick it down

I have read posts where people use Eternabond over their Dicor sealant around
vents on the roof. Does this tape last longer than the Dicor? and can you get it off if need to? Sounds like a miracle tape if I dont need to worry about any Dicor cracking

I would do just the opposite. Scrap off the Dicor and put the tape down then cover it with the self leveling Dicor. At least that's MO. of how to do it. Co
