TPO Membrane

Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes are among the fastest growing commercial roofing products and have gained broad industry acceptance for their many performance and installation advantages. As demand increases for heat-reflective and energy efficient roofing systems, TPO single-ply roofing membranes continue to provide exceptional resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure. The result is an ideal commercial roofing system that is reliable, cost effective, environmentally friendly and easy to install. Systems can be installed fully adhered or mechanically fastened. A complete line of accessories, sealants and adhesives is also available.

PVC Membrane

PVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride. It is one of the pioneering single-ply roof materials. The first known PVC roofing membrane was produced by a company called Trocal and was installed in Germany in 1966. Within a few short years, Trocal PVC covered millions of square feet all over the world and single-ply roofing was setting the stage for market dominance.

The reason PVC roofs are not hard plastic like PVC pipe, is the presence of plasticizers. Plasticizers are chemical components that allow the PVC to be flexible; PVC in its “natural” state is rigid, like PVC pipe.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a trusted membrane that has been providing decades of waterproofing protection in Europe and North America. PVC’s popularity stems from its dependable, heat-welded seams, high reflectivity, superior physical attributes and resistance to water, chemicals, grease, fire and punctures.

EPDM Membrane

 

The EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) rubber roofing membrane has been an appealing choice of the low-slope commercial roofing industry for over 40 years. EPDM continues to be a top choice of architects, roof consultants and contractors for both new construction and replacement roofing projects.

The greatest test of any construction material is how it performs under actual field conditions. Forty years of empirical experience in field applications has shown EPDM to have the roofing industry's longest average service life.

 

EPDM's high resistance to wind damage has also proven to be an increasingly desirable attribute. These roof systems can be designed to meet a variety of wind uplift criteria from Factory Mutual, including 1-60, 1-90, and 1-120 ratings and greater, and the stringent code of Dade County, Florida.

 

Architects, roof consultants and contractors have come to depend on EPDM's time tested, long-term performance.
