What is PVC Roofing?
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofing is one of the most popular of all roofing materials available for your commercial building. Having been used since the 1960’s, PVC membranes have more than proved to be reliable over the decades. Manufacturing plants for example will not face any problems with their roofing as PVC is resistant to chemicals. Similarly, it is possible for restaurants with other roofing systems to get damaged by the oils and fats from its grease vents but not if the roofing is made of PVC membranes. Since PVC can be recycled, it is a good choice compared to other roofing systems as it is environment friendly.
PVC is the perfect material for use in commercial roofing due to its durability and strength and also because it holds up in the most extreme climatic conditions. The minimum breaking strength required of a roofing membrane is 200 pounds per inch as per the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM). However, the minimum breaking strength of PVC roofing membranes is 350 pounds per inch which far exceeds the required strength.
The use of polyester as a reinforcement layer between two layers of PVC roof material is what make PVC roofing strong. To stop curing in a PVC roof the layers include additives that also make it more flexible and UV stable. The PVC roof is then made reflective and dust and dirt repellent by adding a layer of acrylic coating to the roof membrane. It has an added advantage over other roofing systems due to the hot air welded seams used that are impervious to moisture. While other systems use tapes, adhesives, etc. to seal seams, the hot air welded seams in the PVC roofing membranes make a watertight bond that is permanent.
