System Benefits

  • Great Value: Excellent performance at a cost effective price.
  • Excellent Seam Strength: Heat-welded seams provide greater seam strength to taped and other seams.
  • Long-term Weathering: Excellent long-term heat and UV resistance.
  • Energy Saving: Highly reflective and emissive white surface can help reduce energy costs and urban heat island effect.
  • Inherently Flexible: No need for plasticizers.
  • Naturally Fungal Resistant: Doesn’t require biocides.
  • Versatile Application Methods: Including high-performance roofs requiring high wind uplift, increased puncture resistance, or quick economical systems.

MECHANICALLY ATTACHED SMOOTH TPO with Drill-Tec™ Fasteners

Installing smooth TPO with fasteners in a mechanically attached system offers several benefits, including:

  • Up to 50% faster installation compared to fully adhered smooth membrane installations
  • Reliability and cost effectiveness
  • Familiarity with the industry as the most common installation method in single-ply membranes
  • Consistent installation in a wide variety of temperatures
  • No sprayers or additional capital investments
  • A great option for occupied buildings, as there is no odor from adhesives

While fully adhered systems have better wind uplift ratings, a mechanically attached system’s ratings can be increased by modifying the fastening pattern from 12″ on center to 6″on center. Be sure to refer to the GAF Drill-Tec™ Fastening Guide to choose the correct fasteners and plates for your application.

FULLY ADHERED SMOOTH TPO with Traditional Bonding Adhesive

Installing fully adhered EverGuard® Smooth TPO Systems offers several benefits, including:

  • Longer guarantees compared to mechanically attached systems
  • Excellent wind uplift ratings
  • A uniform, smooth appearance
  • Familiarity with workers, as this installation is common in the industry
  • Minimizes thermal drift while acting as a vapor barrier
FULLY ADHERED FLEECE-BACK TPO with WB181 Wet Lay-in

Installing fleece-back TPO with EverGuard® WB181 Bonding Adhesive offers several benefits, including:

  • Up to 50% faster installation time than traditional smooth, fully adhered systems
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Low-VOC content with little-to-no odor, which reduces the disruption to building occupants
  • Additional puncture resistance due to the fleece backing of EverGuard® membrane
ADHERED FLEECE-BACK TPO with Low-Rise Foam

Installing fleece-back TPO with low-rise foam roofing adhesive offers several benefits, including:

  • Up to 50% faster installation time than traditional smooth, fully adhered systems
  • Reduced labor costs

  • Up to 20 squares of coverage per set of containers
  • Longer guarantees compared to mechanically attached systems
  • No expensive equipment or maintenance
  • Excellent wind uplift performance
  • I ncreased puncture resistance due to the fleece backing of EverGuard® membrane
  • Low-VOC content with low odor
  • Substrate, membrane, and outside temperatures must be 40°F (4.4°C) and rising. Application temperatures above 50°F (10°C) are recommended to allow easier adhesive application.
RHINOBOND® SYSTEM

Installing smooth TPO with the RhinoBond®† Attachment System offers several benefits, including:

  • A fast and easy installation
  • Smaller crews and install time, with up to 50% faster installation by adding a second machine
