TPO membrane is a thermoplastic polyolefin based mixture, it is a new technological product that is resistant to atmospheric conditions, sun rays (UV), plant roots and offers long service life thanks to its high tear, puncture and abrasion resistance. It is a reinforced TPO Waterproofing Membrane, which is UV resistant, vapor permeable, equipped, can be combined with a hot air source, has root resistance and is used in roof waterproofing applications.
TPO membranes are designed to provide waterproofing on all roofs exposed to harsh weather conditions and sunlight.
TPO Membrane Fields of Usage
-Light metal roofs
-Garden/parking areas,terrace roof
-On roofs with and without heat insulation
-On dome or different geometric shaped concrete or steel roofs
-Used for waterproofing metal creeks
Advantages of TPO Membrane
-The biggest reason why TPO membranes are preferred is that they have longer resistance, it is known that they can last up to 20-30 years in aging tests.
-When the right product is made, they can be easily combined with the heat source.
-It has an important share in the USA market, is becoming more and more widespread in Europe and our country and increasing its share in the market.
-laminated layer resistant to all kinds of atmospheric conditions, sun rays and plant roots,
-can be used freely in concrete and especially light metal roofs with mechanical fixing,
-fast and economical application with wide dimensions of rolls, high dimensional stability and high tear resistance thanks to reinforcement material,
-reduces the energy consumption of the buildings thanks to its high reflectivity feature,
-Tpo Membranes are recyclable ,environmentally friendly materials

TPO Membrane Synthetic Cover Application Methods
-Mechanical Fixing Method
-Free Laying (Over Ballast) Method
-Linear Bonding Method
When deciding which method to use, criteria such as the slope of the roof, the wind load it will be exposed to, architectural design, whether there will be green terrace roof application and whether an old roof is being renovated are taken into consideration. Regardless of the application methods mentioned above, joints are always combined with the hot air welding method and their tightness is ensured. The joining process with the hot air source provides both tight sealing and creates a permanent and homogeneous structure. As a result of the joining process with hot air source, it creates a more durable layer than synthetic cover. In traditional bonding or torch methods, the joints constitute the weak points of the layer. Joints with high-tech hot air welding robots are strong points in joints, and no separation, lifting or peeling occurs over time.
