Single-ply membranes are factory-manufactured sheet membranes. They generally are categorized as either thermoplastic or thermoset. Thermoplastic materials can be repeatedly softened when heated and hardened when cooled. Thermoset materials solidify, or set, irreversibly after heating. Single-ply membranes are commonly referred to by their chemical acronyms, such as Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM), and can be installed in one of three ways: fully adhered, mechanically attached, or held down with ballast. Most single-ply roof systems do not receive surfacings.
Single Ply Systems
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply roofing system that consist of a thermoplastic polyolefin membrane. This system resists damage from UV light and chemicals and reflects sunlight. Membranes come in varying thickness to meet your specific requirements, and are available in varying roll widths.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is particularly known for its ability to hold up against jet fuels and fatty oil exhaust, making it ideal for the food manufacturing, restaurant, and aviation industries. PVC provides superior resistance to punctures and tears and resistance to moisture, wind, fire and chemicals.
Ethylene Propylene Monomer (EPDM) is a single-ply membrane system made from high performance synthetic rubber. EPDM withstands exposure to UV light and extreme temperatures, and is flexible. It expands to accommodate building movements.
Tough Roof. Superior Adhesive.
Rhinobond is an insulation and membrane attachment system for TPO and PVC membranes. Rhinobond uses the same fastener and plate to secure both the insulation and the membrane to the deck without penetrating the roofing material. The result is a factory mutual-approved system that reduces moisture by eliminating any point of entry, fewer seams, and provides a superior wind uplift performance.
