What is TPO Roofing?

TPO is a type of single-ply roofing membrane. TPO is a  acronym that stands for Thermoplastic Polyolefin. It is an abbreviated way of stating the primary chemical composition of the roof membrane.
There are two primary categories within the single-ply roofing industry as defined by the NRCA. There are thermoplastic and thermoses membranes. TPO falls in the thermoplastic category.
For most buyers, there is little concern about the chemical composition of TPO roofing membrane. Most buyers are concerned about one thing — keeping their buildings dry and installing a roof system that will perform well for a long time at the lowest possible cost.

TPO Characteristics:

TPO roofing is installed in a single membrane application without multiple layers.
The membrane can be installed using different methods, including mechanically attached and adhered.
TPO seams and flashings are completed using hot-air welding equipment.
TPO roofing membranes receive high wind ratings when installed according to pre-tested assemblies as per manufacturer specifications.

What is TPO Roofing Used For?

TPO roofing membrane systems are typically used for commercial and industrial roofing applications.
TPO roofing membranes are used when building owners require a high quality heat-welded roofing system to protect their building and building contents.
TPO roofing membranes provide a viable option when building owners do not have the budget for a higher quality PVC system.
