About PVC Roofing:
PVC, another thermoplastic roof membrane, is versatile, and the materials produced with these polymers have wide ranges of use in residential, industrial and commercial roof applications. The basic chemical resin is a relatively hard material that requires the addition of plasticizers to make it supple and pliable for use as flexible membrane roofing. Chemical stabilizers and some proprietary ingredients are added to PVC roof membrane materials by manufacturers. PVC sheets are reinforced with glass fiber or polyester scrim, mat or fabric and produced in thicknesses ranging from 45 mils to 90 mils. As with other thermoplastic materials, accurate compounding of PVC is necessary so that the PVC roof membranes have desired physical properties. PVC sheets are reported to be resistant to bacterial growth, many industrial chemical atmospheres and plant-root penetration. Properly formulated, PVC roof membrane materials are fire-resistant and have good seaming characteristics however it should be noted that PVC membranes are chemically incompatible with bituminous materials and, as such, should be separated from asphalt and coal-tar products. Separator sheets, or felt-backed or specially formulated membranes, are required when incompatible products, including polystyrene insulations, are present in PVC roof systems.
