TPO is made from a blend of polypropylene and ethylene, and is often reinforced with a polyester scrim to help make them more puncture and tear-resistant. These roofing systems also contain flame retardants, colorant, UV absorbers and other additives to help achieve the desired physical characteristics. TPO roofing membranes can be repeatedly heated and cooled, becoming flexible in the hot weather and more hard as it grows colder, providing versatile protection year-round.
Benefits of TPO
Thermoplastic roofing systems are highly resistant to weather, debris, chemicals, and UV rays. The sheets are welded together with hot air, providing excellent seam strength for years. This is an important consideration, because the seams are often the first spot to fail on a flat roofing membrane. They are lightweight, making them suitable for older buildings where weight is a limiting factor and a heavy build-up roof or metal roofing system is not feasible.
TPO roofs are meant to be as durable as a rubber roof, while providing more flexibility and an easier installation procedure. The hot-welded seams are often up to 4 times stronger than the seams on a traditional rubber roofing system. TPO roofs can be welded together in a wide range of temperatures, making them an ideal replacement when your roof is damaged in the middle of winter.
TPO roofs can also be cold-adhered, mechanically attached, or ballasted in place. Gluing a TPO membrane to the roof deck or to sheets of insulation provides great resistance against wind-driven rain. Mechanically attaching a TPO membrane involves using screw-like fasteners to secure the material to your roof deck. Ballasting employs a layer of heavy material to secure the TPO in place. River rocks are a common ballast found on TPO roofing systems.
