A new trend in terms of waterproofing methods in the civil engineering segment is the use of TPO membranes, which seem to gain more and more ground, without too much effort.
Orlando commercial roofing company TPO installation experts confirm that TPO membranes are made of flexible polyolefin. A fiberglass mesh is inserted in the middle of the membrane to provide special dimensional stability and puncture resistance. TPO membranes offer increased strength and are characterized by a quick and economical installation. They are stable in terms of UV resistance, as well as resistant to aging and various microorganisms. These membranes can be applied directly over existing bituminous membranes.
Waterproofing TPO membranes are available in several thicknesses, so they meet the most diverse requirements. The extensive system of accessories simplifies the application and allows complete and customized solutions.
These roofing membranes do not contain volatile plasticizer and do not produce any emissions. They are designed to be applied easily, using hot air welding technique, in a single layer. Safety against wind suction is ensured by mechanical fastening. After decades of waterproofing, these membranes can be recycled or thermally recovered
Thermoplastic membranes with a high degree of reflection and those applied in the liquid form allow significant energy savings during the use phase. They also reduce the urban heat island effect.
