What Are TPO Roofing Systems?
TPO roofs have been gaining popularity since their introduction in 1990. Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), a single-ply, white reflective roofing membrane made of polypropylene (and ethylene-propylene) rubber that has been polymerized together. It is as durable as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer Rubber). It can be installed either fully attached or mechanically attached. TPO bonds create a monolithic, homogenous structure that covers the entire roof.
A Versatile And Durable Roofing Membrane
Thermoplastic roof membranes have extraordinary strength and wind resistance. TPO roofs are strong and resistant to dirt, bacteria or algae buildup. It is highly resistant to punctures, tears and impact damage due to its flexibility. It is also an easy-to-maintain material.
