TPO is a modern roof system in the single-ply membrane category. It comes in 10’ x 100’ rolls and can be installed in a variety of ways. Manufacturers offer TPO in a variety of thicknesses including 45-mil, 60-mil and 80-mil. The membrane itself is a blend of polypropylene (PP) and ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) polymers. There are also a number of proprietary ingredients included in this mixture to provide extra durability and resistance against harsh weather conditions. These include pigments, UV absorbers, flame-retardants, and more. Reinforced TPO consists of two TPO membranes fused together with a polyester fabric “scrim” in between the plies. TPO is a durable, high-value roof system suitable for a very large percentage of commercial, industrial and mutli-family roofs.
TPO comes in white, grays and tans. It is highly reflective and energy efficient. Customers notice an immediate benefit during summer months.
Advantages of TPO include:
- ENERGY EFFICIENT
- TEAR RESISTANT
