TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin) roofing membranes are one of the most popular types of thermoplastic membranes in the USA due to their excellent properties.
TPO roofing membranes are known for their exceptional durability, allowing them to withstand harsh weather conditions, UV radiation, and temperature extremes. The inherent flexibility and resilience of TPO enable it to expand and contract with the changing weather, preventing cracks and leaks that can compromise the integrity of the roof. With proper installation and maintenance, TPO roofs can last for several decades, providing long-term protection for commercial buildings.
TPO roofs offer excellent energy-saving properties, making them an environmentally friendly and cost-effective choice. The reflective surface of TPO membranes helps to minimize heat absorption, reducing the need for excessive air conditioning and lowering energy consumption. By keeping the building cooler during hot summer months, TPO roofs can contribute to substantial energy savings and lower utility bills.
TPO membranes are available in a variety of colors, including white, tan, and gray, providing flexibility in design options. The ability to choose different colors allows building owners to match the roofing system with the overall aesthetic of the structure. Additionally, TPO roofing membranes are lightweight, making them suitable for a wide range of commercial roofing applications without putting excessive stress on the underlying structure.
While TPO roofing offers numerous advantages on its own, applying a TPO Roof Coating System can further enhance its performance and extend its lifespan. These coating systems provide an additional protective layer that helps to combat weathering, improve energy efficiency, and ensure long-term durability.
TPO Roof Coating Systems create a seamless and watertight barrier over the TPO membrane, enhancing its weatherproofing capabilities. These coatings act as a shield against rain, snow, and other environmental factors, preventing moisture intrusion and protecting the underlying roof structure. Furthermore, TPO coatings incorporate UV inhibitors that shield the roofing system from the damaging effects of prolonged sun exposure, preventing premature aging and degradation.
Applying a reflective TPO roof coating can significantly enhance the energy-saving properties of the roofing system. These coatings have high solar reflectivity, bouncing back a substantial amount of solar heat and reducing the heat absorption by the building. By minimizing heat transfer into the structure, TPO roof coatings help to maintain a comfortable interior temperature and reduce the reliance on air conditioning, thereby lowering energy costs.
TPO Roof Coating Systems provide an additional layer of protection to the underlying TPO membrane, effectively extending its lifespan. The coatings act as a sacrificial barrier, shielding the TPO membrane from external elements, such as dirt, debris, and pollutants, that can degrade its surface over time. Additionally, these coatings can enhance the overall durability and flexibility of the TPO membrane, allowing it to withstand the rigors of weather and foot traffic.
TPO membranes are single-ply roofing membranes constructed from thermoplastic polyolefin. TPO roofing membranes are mostly used in low-slope commercial roofing systems that cover a large area. TPO Roofing System is a Thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) single-ply roofing membrane.
Conklin’s been in the innovation business since 1977 when we formulated the first acrylic roof coatings. Now we’re taking our innovation to new heights by offering a complete waterproofing system for Aged Thermoplastic Olefin (TPO), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Chlorosulfonated Polyethylene (CSPE) roofs that can improve and extend the life of the existing Single-Ply roof. As TPO and other Approved Single-Ply membranes become weathered, rooftops can crack, leak, and pick up dirt, diminishing their effectiveness and energy-saving properties.
Conklin’s elastomeric coatings provide a new, cost-effective solution for repairing and preserving Approved Single-Ply Membranes, resulting in improved energy savings.
A great return on investment is another important reason to choose Conklin’s Single-Ply Coating System. Many satisfied customers discover that a Conklin roof pays for itself during the warranty period at lower air conditioning costs. Federal tax rebates, tax credits, and deductions may also offset your investment. In many cases, the government considers recoating a procedure that can be deducted as a maintenance cost. Check with your local utility company, tax advisor, and Energy Star for additional details.
Years from now, when it’s time to renew the superior protection of your Conklin roof, a simple recoat will do the job. In most cases, multiple recoats can be done for the entire life of your roof, saving you the expense of a new roof. With your recoat, our material warranty may also be extended several years. Your Conklin Roofing Contractor will inspect your roof and advise you on the best way to restore the protective envelope of your building.
