PVC roofing materials are a highly-engineered, flexible, thermoplastic membrane.
They are manufactured using a UV-resistant, polyvinyl-chloride formulation. PVC provides excellent weathering resistance, high tensile strength and long-term flexibility. It also exhibits excellent resistance to harsh chemicals and industrial pollutants thanks to its specific chemical formulation.PVC roofing systems provide a cleaner, quicker, more economical installation and a final product able to withstand heat, wind, rain, varying temperatures and many contaminants. The heat-weldable seams provide a unified, watertight seal as strong as the membrane itself. Systems can be installed fully adhered or mechanically fastened. A complete line of accessories, sealants and adhesives is also available.
There are many reasons to specify PVC, but these three are the most important: the PVC formulation offers the lowest life cycle cost in the industry, has the highest reflectivity rating for increased energy savings, and delivers best in class chemical resistance.
As with other single-ply systems, PVC is a primary contender in the new construction market. A flat, uniform, structurally sound roof deck is a must for proper PVC performance.
