A PROVEN LOW-SLOPE SOLUTION
One of the most popular commercial roofing applications, TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) is created by mixing together polymers, rubber, and plastics. The result is an amazingly flexible membrane that is ideal for the low-slope and flat roofing systems of commercial buildings.
Also called vinyl, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is composed of ethylene and chlorine. In its compounding process, vinyl resin is blended with biocides, color pigments, heat stabilizers, ultraviolet light inhibitors, and plasticizers. PVC is recyclable and fire-resistant, and it uses fewer petrochemicals than other roofing systems.
What Are the Advantages of Single Ply Thermoplastic Membranes?
Weather Resistance: The special blend of ingredients makes it durable against weathering. Even years of exposure to chemicals, UV rays, ozone, algae, and storms will not wear it down.
Energy Efficiency: Single Ply Thermoplastic Membranes are known for being highly reflective to the sun and maintaining cool temperatures. For this reason, these roofs have been “Energy Star” rated by the Department of Energy, meaning they are both eco and budget-friendly.
