Single Ply TPO
Single Ply Thermoplastic Polyolefin / Thermal Polymer Olefin is a single-ply roof membrane. These membranes are exceptionally strong as they combine weldable seam systems with the strength associated with EPDM rubber. These systems are easily installed and are very resistant to a variety of extreme conditions. Many TPO membranes carry an Energy Star rating and can help reduce the amount of electricity spent cooling a large building by reflecting heat away from the roof.
Benefits of Singly Ply TPO Roofing
TPO constructions come with UV protection and are extremely weather-resistant. Originally used in the auto industry because it does not expand or contract when confronted with severe weather, single ply TPO has been adapted for the roofing industry with excellent results.
TPO can be installed in one of three ways: ballasted, mechanically-attached or fully-adhered. Ballasted installs weigh down the membrane with some sort of weighted material and only seal edges. Mechanically-attached refers to the use of screws to secure the membrane to the roof itself. Full-adhered installs utilize an adhesive to secure the membrane to the substrate. Contact C.L.
