Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO)

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polyprophylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in a fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof.

These membranes have the ability to reflect UV rays, which ensures that the roofs surface as well as the building remains cool throughout the hotter times of the year. This assists in reducing cooling costs and decreases how much carbon emissions are released into the air.

TPO System benefits

TPO Roofing Systems install quickly and economically.

White surfaces have been shown to reflect up to 78% of the sun’s rays to reduce air-conditioning costs. The superb reflectivity of white TPO even reduces the heat build-up under the membrane.

TPO provides excellent resistance to fire, UV, airborne bacteria, and industrial pollutants such as air-conditioning coolants. Contains no chlorine, a plus for the environment

’ Available in widths of 8′, 10′, and 12′ for less seams and less labor compared to standard PVC sheets.

More product on top of the scrim where you need it most, one of the thickest top plies in the industry.

Strength Keeps moisture out, yet lightweight, making it ideal for new construction and retrofit installations without adding excessive weight to the roof deck. TPO can handle the desert sun, sand, arctic freezes, and torrential downpours. Stands
up to rooftop traffic, tools, and equipment.

The membrane remains flexible in hot and cold temperatures so it will not split or crack

TPO membrane remains repairable year after year, allowing for ease of future cutouts, alterations and tie-ins. Can be cleaned to retain like-new appearance.

INSTALLED COST VALUE

Other white membranes command a premium price, but thanks to manufacturing technology originally developed in the automotive industry (impact and UV resistant bumpers), a TPO Roof is “The Affordable White Roof”.

REINFORCED TPO

  • White, gray, tan (other colors by special order)
  • Also available in Fleece Back versions
  • Thermoplastic polyolefin based for superior strength and weatherability

  • Ideal for both new construction and reroofing
  • Reinforced membrane easily handles building thermal expansion and contraction
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM performance standards.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

  • No plasticizer migration
  • No chlorine
  • Recyclable

With a hot-air gun, TPO membranes are welded at 800-1000 degrees Fahrenheit. As a result, the seams are fused for long-lasting performance.
