TPO roofing or, Thermoplastic Polyolefin, is making a
surge as a preferred flat roof membrane application. This single ply
system is becoming increasingly popular due to its highly chemical and
contaminant resistant nature. Most liquids and chemicals normally
exhausted onto the roof have no effect on the membrane. TPO membrane
formulation contains no plasticizers or chlorine so it will not dry out
or become brittle with age. This sheeting easily accommodates the
building’s normal expansion and contraction. Currently (2011), this is
typically the most expensive flat roof application on the market. Life
expectance is around 30 years.
Advantages (Benefits) of TPO Roofing:
1. TPO roofing is it’s heat reflective and energy efficient property.
2. Sheeting easily accommodates the building’s normal expansion and contraction.
3. TPO is often one of the most economical options for a large low slope roofing area.
