TPO membrane is also reinforced with a polyester scrim reinforcement, which
offers greater puncture and tear resistance than conventional black EPDM membranes.
What type of systems are available with TPO membranes ?
TPO can be installed in mechanically attached, fully adhered, and ballasted type applications. The most prevalent is the mechanically attached roof system.
Can TPO be installed over an existing roof system ?
TPO is not the cure all for all roof problems. Good roofing practices still apply when considering even a tough TPO membrane. Any wet insulation in the existing roof system should be removed prior to ANY new roof system installed, including TPO. But once all the existing insulation and decking has been inspected and approved, a TPO system can be installed after an insulation board has been applied over an existing built up roof system or other single ply membrane.
