PVC is a polyvinyl chloride can be formed into membrane by addition of oils or liquid plasticizers. The PVC based roofing is also properly known as vinyl roofing and considered to be the longest lasting flat roof coverings. These roofing materials are lightweight and leak-proof when installed appropriately. As the roofing membranes, PVC’sare available as bare form of fleece backing. These roofing also have a greater resistance over ponding water and they also have significant chemical resistance. Additionally, PVC roof membranes also qualify for the energy saving ratings and meet EPA and DOE energy savings specifications. Most of the PVC membranes are formed in a spectrum of colors allowing metal panel to look or the addition of logos or the multi-colored systems. These are light in color and can be manufactured by reinforcing PVC with non-woven fiberglass or polyester. Some of the key benefits of associated to PVC roofing include high flame resistance, lightweight roofing membranes, environmentally friendly roofing membranes, easy installations, variety of different colors and patterns, long service life, durability in harsh weather and temperature extremes, resistance to chemicals, resistance to fire & wind etc.
The PVC roofing system is attached mechanically through insulation, direct to substrate, or may be fully adhered. Moreover the use of fleece backing materials, PVC can also be fully adhered to rough finishes or mopped with asphalt. PVC membranes enable roof modification for new equipment, solar panels, and routine maintenance. The PVC sheets can be factory fabricated as wide panels, reducing number of seams which can be sealed in the field. The fastener patterns can further modified based upon the expected loads and applications.
