Benefits Of TPO Single – Ply Roof Systems For Commercial Properties

Thermoplastic Polyolefin Roofing Membranes

Thermoplastic Polyolefins are a “new generation” of single-ply roofing systems

A typical low-slope roofing system consists of three components: a structural deck, a thermal insulation barrier and a waterproofing membrane, which consists of reinforcing fibers or fabric sandwiched between two sheets of flexible matrix. The matrix material is either asphalt- or polymer-based.  In “single-ply” membranes, the matrix is made of flexible polymer.  The reinforcement provides dimensional stability for the membrane as well as strength to resist stresses in service.  It is generally made of chopped short glass fiber strands packed in a mat, or continuous polyester fiber arranged in a grid or in a non-woven mat.
