What is an IPO - by Wall Street Survivor
It is installed in a single membrane application without multiple layers.
The membrane can be installed using several different methods including mechanically attached, adhered, ballasted and plate bonded.
Certain manufacturers, such as Carlisle SynTec, also offer TPO with a FleeceBACK which allows the membrane to be adhered using low-rise urethane foam.
The membrane may be installed using a plate bonded system.
The plates are bonded to the underside of the membrane using an induction welder. The RhinoBond system is sold by Olympic Manufacturing Group.
TPO membranes come in a variety colors, but primarily are available in white, grey and tan.
TPO seams and flashings are completed using hot-air welding equipment.
Manufacturer warranties are available for installations up to 30 years.
TPO membranes are grease resistant.
TPO roofing membranes receive high wind ratings when installed according to pre-tested assemblies as per manufacturer specifications.
