TPO Roofing Systems

Thermoplastic Polyolefin single-ply roofing. This roofing material may be fully adhered, mechanically fastened, or ballasted. TPO seam strengths are reported to become three to 4 occasions greater than EPDM roofing systems. This is a trendy selection for "Green" constructing. It is actually offered in white, grey, and black.[2] Using white roof material helps lessen the "heat island effect" and solar heat gain in the creating. Then again, TPO has changed formulations more than the years and every manufacturer has its own mix of "polyolefins" (plastics.) This implies that TPO remains largely unproven in true planet applications as its current formulation exists nowadays.

Thermoplastic single-ply roofing membranes are amongst the fastest expanding commercial roofing merchandise and have gained broad business acceptance for their countless performance and installation benefits. As demand increases for heat-reflective and power efficient roofing systems, thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membranes continue to provide exceptional resistance to ultraviolet, ozone and chemical exposure.
