TPO membrane is a copolymer of polypropylene and ethylene propylene rubber that has been formed into a membrane sheet and reinforced with a heavy duty polyester scrim.
A ‘second generation’ single ply product, TPO marries the advantages of previous generation materials while eliminating their limitations. The result is a roofing membrane that is faster and easier to install yet offers outstanding resistance to weathering, temperature extremes, ultraviolet exposure and a whole wide variety of industrial chemicals
TPE roofing systems use the very latest in advanced polymer technology to provide the flat roofing system of the future – today. Incorporating a range of high performance waterproofing membranes with complementary accessories made from the same TPE polymers, these “next generation” TPE systems combine the best performance characteristics of thermo-plastics (e.g. PVC) and elastomerics (e.g. EPDM). This ensures optimum results both during installation and in performance.
TPE waterproof membranes can be mechanically fastened, adhered or loose laid and ballasted. The membrane can be installed over most substructures, including plywood, concrete. They are durable, environmentally friendly and offer flame-free application as membrane laps are welded using hot air. The system is installed as a single layer using 2m wide sheets.
