Adhesives, Cleaners, and Primers

Our TPO gives you the option of a reliable, cost-effective roofing solution. 

We reinforce our membranes with a polyester fabric and manufacture them using an ultraviolet-resistant thermoplastic polyolefin formulation.

We developed our TPO formulation to allow for extreme pliability, flexibility and weldability during the installation.
