Since its introduction in the U.S. market as a roofing material in the early 90s, TPO (Thermoplastic PolyOlefin) has been one of the most in-demand commercial and industrial roofing membranes in the country today. Every year, millions and millions of square feet of TPO are being installed in different establishments, and the momentum is expected to outpace its current performance today.
TPO is designed to cover and protect the roof from UV rays and weather through its high-quality blend of fillers and polymers. It can be a combination of rubber, polypropylene, polyethylene, and various fillers such as carbon fiber and fiberglass. Through its promise of better UV radiation resistance, greater strength against breaks, excellent weather resistance, and high impact strength against damaging waters and fires when compared to other roofing membranes like PVC or EPDM, TPO will remain one of America’s top choices in roofing membrane needs.
